Paula Jones has filed a federal sexual harassment case against President Bill Clinton, alleging that when he was governor of Arkansas, he made an inappropriate sexual advance on her. The case was filed in 1994, years before Monica Lewinski’s romance became public. Jones is now married to Steven Mark McFadden, and they have a son together.
According to History, Jones alleged that after she made her accusation public, Clinton sexually harassed her and harmed her reputation. According to the story, in a motion to dismiss Clinton’s lawsuit, her lawyers asserted presidential immunity. A federal district court determined that Clinton could not be tried until after he had left the White House, but that the investigation into the claims could continue. Jones appealed the decision in 1996, and a court ruled that the matter might go to the Supreme Court.
According to the story, Clinton’s lawyers requested a postponement, which occurred during the 1996 presidential election. According to the Los Angeles Times, Jones eventually negotiated an agreement with Clinton.
Producer Brad Simpson claimed at a TCA presentation that Lewinsky acted as the show’s “primary consultant,” examining screenplays and offering thoughts and recommendations to the creators. The third installment of the FX limited series, Impeachment: American Crime Story, is out now. It premieres at 10 p.m. Eastern time tonight, September 7, 2021.
