David Hale, the source of criminal allegations against the Clintons, claimed that Bill Clinton had pressured him into providing an illegal $300,000 loan to Susan McDougal, the Clintons' partner in the Whitewater land deal The allegations were regarded as questionable, because Hale had not mentioned Clinton in reference to this loan during the original FBI investigation.
It started with Monica and Bill having ---- in 1995 and 1996. It came to light in 1998 when Linda Tripp (coworker of Monica) recorded their phone conversations and then secretly delivered them to the Independent Counsil who was investing other cases involving the Clintons. Ultimately Bill denied having any relations with Monica and even said it in a television interview. It went to court and Bill was found guilty of his sexual relations with Monica and was impeached.
