Sex, lies and politics. How a sex scandal changed the face of the United States. «I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. These allegations are false.» Those were Bill Clinton’s words. It was January 26th, 1998. Looking straight in the eyes of his interviewers, the President of the United States lied live from the White House during a filmed press conference. Intimidation, manipulation, … «Monica Gate» was the greatest sex scandal that ever shook the presidency of the United States. An eye-opening demonstration of the mechanics of lies at the highest levels of the State.
