Monica Lewinsky, left, the woman at the heart of the latest allegations regarding President Bill Clinton's sex life, leaves Washington's Cosmos Club. Linda Tripp, who secretly recorded her conversations with the White House trainee about the nature of Ms Lewinsky's relationship with Mr Clinton, yesterday said she was with Ms Lewinsky when the President called her, and on others when her relationship with Mr Clinton was the subject of "volatile and contentious" telephone conversations with White House aides.

Ms Lewinsky seems to have reached a dead end in her attempt to gain immunity from prosecution if she changes testimony denying that she had any sexual relationship with the President.
