With a raised clenched fist, Mr Clinton went on: "I never told anyone to lie, not a single time, never. These allegations are false and I need to go back to work for the American people."

He had earlier denied having a sexual affair with Miss Lewinsky as part of his oral deposition in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case.
