(xi) Two Subsequent Meetings

Ms. Lewinsky testified that she met with President Clinton in the Oval Office study on the morning of Saturday, August 16, 1997. They kissed, and Ms. Lewinsky touched the President’s genitals through his clothing, but he rebuffed her efforts to perform oral sex. ...

The President, however, testified under oath in the civil case _ both in his deposition and in a written answer to an interrogatory _ that he did not have a ``sexual relationship″ or a ``sexual affair″ or ``sexual relations″ with Ms. Lewinsky.
