Lewinsky's Proposed Testimony

— NPR's Chitra Ragavan reports that Monica Lewinsky's lawyer says he's given Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr a verbal summary of what Lewinsky will say in exchange for immunity. William Ginsburg will not provide details of his client's proposed testimony, but says she'll submit to forensic tests, such as lie detectors. Meanwhile, President Clinton's lawyer has asked for the trial in the Paula Jones civil case to be held sooner than it is now scheduled.
