Lewinsky ends day of testimony
Monica Lewinsky - not expected in court on Friday
Monica Lewinsky has finished a day of testifying before a grand jury about her alleged affair with President Clinton.
Wearing a navy-blue business suit, and looking tired and pale, she left the federal courthouse in Washington after about eight hours of testimony.
"Monica and her family are relieved that this ordeal finally appears to be coming to an end," she said.
Mr Clinton carried on his normal presidential duties but much of the White House press corps was busy besieging the courthouse where the former intern gave evidence in secret.
Miss Lewinsky, 25, agreed last week to co-operate with the investigation by the special prosecutor, Kenneth Starr, in return for immunity from prosecution.
The testimony may not be made public until Mr Starr publishes his report, possibly in September.
Correspondents say the US media is fascinated with the case and speculation, possibly spiced with leaks, will be feverish.
Clinton to testify soon
Mr Clinton is to give evidence himself, on a video link from the White House, on August 17.
But while Miss Lewinsky gave her evidence, our correspondent says the president tried to give the impression of "business as usual".
"If this means that we're coming to the end of this four-year, over $40m investigation, then that would be a good thing," he said.
The fundraiser, John Sullivan, said he was assigned the task of "restraining" her.
