London, March 20 : Hillary Clinton was present in the White House on the fateful day her husband, former US President Bill Clinton, had a sexual encounter with then intern Monica Lewinsky, according to records of her daily schedule as First Lady released by the National Archives.
The 17,481-page review, in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed nearly a year ago by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog, also found considerable gaps in time and many days containing only "private meetings" at the White House with unnamed individuals.
Hillary's public schedule on Feb. 28, 1997, the day on which Lewinsky's infamous blue dress became stained by the president, shows that the former first lady spent the morning and the night in the White House.
The Feb. 28 schedule lists her as attending four "drop-by" events, closed to the press, between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. and then records her as staying in the White House overnight that fateful day.
The schedule lists three different events occurring that evening at Washington theatres and the Kennedy Center but does not indicate if she attended, reports Times Online.
President Clinton took Lewinsky into an Oval Office bathroom in the early evening, after recording a radio address. Forensic tests later "conclusively" showed that the blue dress she was wearing "was stained with the President's semen."
Chris Farrell, director of research at Judicial Watch, said that the Clintons had used every means possible to hold-up the release of the documents, and that another 20,000 pages of material were yet to be made public.
