The Presidential sex scandal continues to twist and turn in the United States, even though the man at the centre of the allegations took time off to play golf this weekend.
Bill Clinton is at his Camp David retreat with daughter Chelsea after enduring one of the most difficult weeks of his political career.
Meanwhile in the latest development, a New York literary agent is threatening to release audiotapes of her conversations with Linda Tripp, the woman who befriended Monica Lewinsky - the White House intern alleged to have had an affair with Clinton.
Leaving the Monica Lewinsky controversy behind him, President Clinton got out for a five-hour round of golf Saturday with his dog, Buddy, in tow.
Clinton is spending the weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat with his daughter, Chelsea, while his wife, Hillary, is on a three-day visit to Switzerland.
The president played at Maple Run Golf Course with his brother, Roger, brothers-in-law Hugh and Tony Rodham and longtime friend Harry Thomason, a Hollywood producer.
Buddy spent his time darting in and out of the carts as the golfers drove from hole to hole.
On some of the holes, Clinton had to hold the pup back to keep him from interfering.
After nine holes, Clinton stopped to talk with a handful of people near the clubhouse including a 5-year-old boy.
And after what must have been the worst ten days of his Presidency, Clinton does has something to smile about.
The latest opinion polls show he is more popular than ever, despite the accusations of an affair with a former White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.
Linda Tripp is the woman who recorded conversations with Lewinsky in which she is alleged to have detailed her relationship with the President.
Now Lewinsky's lawyer is raising doubt about Tripp's truthfulness, denying assertions Tripp overhead a two a-m phone call between Lewinsky and the President.
Today Tripp's friend, New York literary agent Lucianne Goldberg came out fighting.
Goldberg warned she would back up her friend's claims by releasing her own recordings of conversations she had with Tripp about the alleged affair.
"What proof do any of us have, except I have those two tapes in which she mentions these details. And if they keep forcing her veracity and keep calling it into doubt, I will release those tapes and let everybody hear them."

Leaving his home early Saturday morning, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr, who is leading the investigation into President Clinton, gave a few brief remarks to waiting reporters.
"Q: How are things working out ?
A: We are moving forward, trying to gather the facts as quickly as we can.
Q: When will we hear more about the evidence you've got?
A: Well, as you know, it is a Grand Jury investigation. The Grand Jury has been sitting actively, it's very attentive but beyond that I cannot comment."

The woman at the centre of the allegations, Monica Lewinsky, remained out of sight at the exclusive Cosmos Club in Washington D-C, where her lawyer is staying.
Lewinsky is due to leave Washington next week to spend some time with her father in California.
The decision follows a week of negotiations with Whitewater prosecutors, which failed to produce a grant of immunity in exchange for her grand jury testimony.
Lewinsky's attorney, William Ginsburg, will also be heading west.
"We are not running, we are not being evasive.You know what - she needs a little change of pace too."

At the annual Conservative Political Action conference Saturday, the message for President Clinton was direct - impeachment.
Despite the sex scandal, Clinton's popularity polls are rising to new heights and some of his opponents on the right are divided over how to capitalize on the allegations of an affair and cover-up without appearing too mean-spirited.
But some like republican Bob Barr unleashed tough rhetoric.
"Well my friends, I am here to deliver a message to the President. Character counts, responsibility is required and accountability will be demanded."

Among cautious Republicans, a new tactic has emerged.
Don't directly comment on Clinton's sex life, but raise doubts about his truthfulness by talking about his lack of integrity on other issues.
"The problem this president faces is that while he can stand before the Congress as he did this week and outline dozens of new programmes, and give us a catalogue of things he wants to do, he doesn't have at this point the political or moral authority to get anybody to do the things that he wants to do."
