President Clinton says he'll eventually talk
about the Paula Jones sexual harassment case -- but for now, he'll keep mum.

A federal judge decided in July that Clinton must pay about 90-thousand dollars for lying in the case.

At a White House news conference, Clinton said, "When I am out of office, I will have a lot to say about this."

But he says he'll leave the Jones and Monica Lewinsky scandals behind for the rest of his term.

With an edge of anger in his voice, Clinton said he's uncomfortably keeping quiet. He's denied he propositioned Jones in an Arkansas hotel in 1991
