WATCH: New footage released of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky at time of affair
Footage has been released for the first time showing former US President Bill Clinton with Monica Lewinsky while their sexual relationship was ongoing in 1997.
The video shows Clinton putting his arm around Lewinsky’s waist and posing with her for a photograph.
It was released on YouTube on Wednesday by the Clinton Library under a Freedom of Information request and had been filmed on February 28, 1997 at the Oval Office after Clinton gave his weekly radio address.
It is the first time a video of Clinton and Lewinsky interacting that day has emerged. At the time, the pair had been having sexual interactions for two years.
According to the Starr report, Clinton told Lewinsky that the affair would have to end in May 1997, three months after the video was filmed. But it would not be exposed for another year.
