THE ISSUE of proportionality looms large in Judge Susan Webber Wright's citation of President Clinton for civil contempt of court. It was missing in the impeachment of the president.Mr. Clinton's testimony in Paula Jones' lawsuit about whether he had ever been alone with Monica Lewinsky was intentionally false and misleading, regardless of the definition of "sexual relations." The judge agreed that his aggravation with what he considered a politically inspired lawsuit may have been justified, but deception was not his proper recourse.

WASHINGTON -- President Clinton sought to bring closure to the sex scandal that has engulfed his presidency by apologizing last night for misleading the country about his relationship with Monica S. Lewinsky.At the same time, Clinton portrayed himself as a victim of independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's investigation. He said he had truthfully answered "questions no American citizen would ever want to answer," during a steamy afternoon spent facing prosecutors' questions.But while Clinton's day of reckoning before a grand jury may be over, the Lewinsky matter isn't.

Starr gained him no ground in his criminal investigation of President Clinton -- and probably cost him some. The court refused to quickly sort out a series of disputes over grand jury testimony, raising questions about where the matter stands. Sun staff writer Lyle Denniston provided these answers.Why did Starr go to the Supreme Court?Met by what he considers repeated attempts to "impede" his investigation by legal maneuvering that seeks to block testimony before a grand jury, Starr asked the justices to step in quickly to stop those maneuvers.

WASHINGTON -- Defending himself against attacks from Monica Lewinsky's lawyer, Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr denied yesterday that his investigators detained and mistreated the former White House intern for nine hours last week.William H. Ginsburg, Lewinsky's lawyer, has accused Starr of bullying and intimidating the 24 year old since she became the center of the sex and cover-up crisis engulfing the White House and a target of Starr's investigation.Ginsburg is also puzzled that Starr has not offered Lewinsky immunity from criminal prosecution in exchange for her cooperation in his investigation of President Clinton.

Independent counsel Kenneth Starr and his staff have pulled together information on the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky relationship in ways that would make many investigative reporters proud.Granted, journalists rarely have access to grand jury testimony, as Starr did. Journalists cannot issue subpoenas to witnesses, as Starr did. Journalists cannot grant witnesses immunity from prosecution, as Starr did. Journalists cannot effectively threaten hold uncooperative sources in contempt of court, as Starr could.
