'All She Wanted Was an Apology': 'Scandalous' Chronicles Paula Jones' Accusation Against Bill Clinton
Paula Jones' former attorney joined Bill Hemmer on "America's Newsroom" to reflect on the "extraordinary time" being chronicled in the Fox News Channel documentary series "Scandalous."
The seven-episode series gives a riveting, up-close look at the Clinton scandals of the 1990s.
The second episode, which airs Sunday night at 8:00pm ET, follows Jones' sexual harassment lawsuit against former President Bill Clinton and the high-stakes political drama that ensued.
Jones alleged that then-Arkansas Gov. Clinton propositioned her and exposed himself at a conference in Little Rock in 1991. He denied the allegation.
"She was a woman that really just wanted to have her good name cleared. All she wanted was an apology," said Joseph Cammarata, who represented Jones.
When that didn't happen, they filed a lawsuit, eventually reaching a $850,000 settlement with Clinton in 1999.
"It was an extraordinary time," Cammarata said. "It was amazing to have a case that attracted so much attention, nationally and internationally. It was a very, very good learning experience for me professionally. It was quite an important case to be on, and I'm glad I was on it."
He added Jones was a "wonderful client" who just wanted to have her reputation restored.
Tune in to "Scandalous" Sunday night at 8:00pm ET on Fox News Channel, and revisit last week's episode on the Whitewater scandal.
