Text of Vernon Jordan's Statement
March 6, 1998

Text of Vernon Jordan's statement outside the federal courthouse on Thursday, March 5 after completing a second day of grand jury testimony.

"I have just completed two days of testimony before the grand jury pursuant to a subpoena from the independent counsel. I do not know as of this moment whether I will be called back or not. That is not my decision.

I do want to reiterate two things and speak about two others.

First of all, it is a fact that I helped Monica Lewinsky find private employment in New York.

Secondly, it is a fact that I took Monica Lewinsky to a very competent lawyer, Frank Carter, here in Washington, D.C.

And thirdly, it is a fact that I kept the president of the United States informed about my activities.

"I want to say two further things. One is I did not in any way tell her, encourage her, to lie; and secondly, that my efforts to find her a job were not a quid pro quo for the affidavit that she signed. That's the truth, that's the whole truth, that's nothing but the truth.

"As to how I feel about this process that I have just completed, I feel about like Paul wrote in a letter: `I have a fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith.' And we will see what time will tell us.

"I will continue, because I am under subpoena, not to comment further nor to take any questions on this matter. Thank you all very much. Good day."
