Clinton bounces back
The Clintons appear to have survived the initial allegations
President Bill Clinton is more popular with the American public now than when the latest round of allegations of impropriety emerged last week.
A CNN poll has given the President an all-time-high 67% approval rating and polls for the Wall Street Journal and NBC also showed Mr Clinton's approval rating had jumped from 59% to 68% during the allegations of misconduct.
Mr Clinton has still given no account of what type of relationship he did form with Ms Lewinsky when she briefly volunteered at the White House three years ago.
Meanwhile, prosecutor Kenneth Starr has continued his investigation into the President undeterred by accusations that he is at the centre of a right-wing conspiracy.
The latest media revelation in both The New York Times and The Washington Post says Ms Lewinsky, the 24-year-old former White House worker with whom Mr Clinton is alleged to have had a sexual relationship, returned to the Oval Office on December 28.
The basis of the scandal surrounding Mr Clinton hinges on whether or not he pressured Ms Lewinsky to lie about their relationship.
Ms Lewinsky continues to hide out in the Watergate apartment block where she has been since the whole affair began over a week ago.
Her lawyer, William Ginsburg, said: "She cannot go out, she is besieged. She is very strong emotionally ... she gets momentarily depressed."
And, as the flow of charges against Mr Clinton appears to have started to dry up, she is facing her own smear campaign.
Mr Ginsburg admitted she had previously had a long affair with a married man, but denied reports in The New York Post that Penthouse had offered her $2m for an exclusive interview and nude photographs.
