Monica Lewinsky’s Affidavit in the Paula Jones Case

Monica S. Lewinsky signed this affidavit on Jan. 7. The statement was made public by Jones’ lawyers Friday, March 13, 1998, as part of their arguments opposing a motion for summary judgment filed by President Clinton’s lawyers.

In the affidavit released by Jones’ attorneys, Lewinsky is referred to as “Jane Doe” but her signature is on the last page of the document.

Affidavit by Monica Lewinsky.

  1. My name is Jane Doe # 6. I am 24 years old and I currently reside at 700 New Hampshire Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. 20037.
  2. On December 19, 1997, I was served with a subpoena from the plaintiff to give a deposition and to produce documents in the lawsuit filed by Paula Corbin Jones against President William Jefferson Clinton and Danny Ferguson.
  3. I can not fathom any reason that the plaintiff would seek information from me for her case.
  4. I have never met Ms. Jones, nor do I have any information regarding the events she alleges occurred at the Excelsior Hotel on May 8, 1991, or any other information concerning any of the allegations in her case.
  5. I worked at the White House in the summer of 1995 as a White House intern. Beginning in December, 1995, I worked in the Office of Legislative Affairs as a staff assistant for correspondence. In April, 1996, I accepted a job as assistant to the Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Defense. I maintained that job until December 26, 1997. I am currently unemployed but seeking a new job.
  6. In the course of my employment at the White House I met President Clinton several times. I also saw the President at a number of social functions held at the White House. When I worked as an intern, he appeared at occasional functions attended by me and several other interns. The correspondence I drafted while I worked at the Office of Legislative Affairs was seen and edited by supervisors who either had the President’s signature affixed by mechanism or, I believe, had the President sign the correspondence itself.
  7. I have the utmost respect for the President who has always behaved appropriately in my presence.
  8. I have never had a sexual relationship with the President, he did not propose that we have a sexual relationship, he did not offer me employment or other benefits in exchange for a sexual relationship, he did not deny me employment or other benefits for rejecting a sexual relationship. I do not know of any other person who had a sexual relationship with the President, was offered employment or other benefits in exchange for a sexual relationship, or was denied employment or other benefits for rejecting a sexual relationship. The occasions that I saw the President after I left my employment at the White House in April, 1996, were official receptions, formal functions or events related to the U.S. Department of Defense, where I was working at the time. There were other people present on those occasions.
  9. Since I do not possess any information that could possibly be relevant to the allegations made by Paula Jones or lead to possible admissible evidence in this case, I asked my attorney to provide this affidavit to plaintiff’s counsel. Requiring my disposition in this matter would cause disruption to my life, especially since I am looking for employment, unwarranted attorney’s fees and costs, and constitute an invasion of my right to privacy.I declare under the penaltyy of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
