1998: U.S. President Bill Clinton agrees to pay Paula Jones $850,000, without an apology or admission of guilt, to throw out her sexual harassment lawsuit. A state employee when Clinton was governor of Arkansas, Jones had claimed that Clinton had exposed himself and asked her for oral sex in a hotel room. The Paula Jones case precipitated Clinton's impeachment, with charges of perjury and obstruction of justice being later brought against Clinton based on statements regarding the nature of his relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky he made during the depositions for the Jones lawsuit.
