Five years ago, on Jan. 19, 2001, the day before President Clinton left office, he agreed to a five-year suspension of his Arkansas law license and agreed to pay a $25,000 fine to the Arkansas Bar Association in exchange for an agreement that Whitewater prosecutors wouldn't pursue criminal charges against him after he lied under oath about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
The former President is again eligible to get an Arkansas law license. Not that he needs it. According to the Associated Press, last year Senator Clinton's financial reports disclosed the Clintons had between $5 million and $25 million in a joint bank account.
The five year anniversary also means many of former President Bill Clinton's records become subject to the federal Freedom of Information Act, the law that allows citizens to see public records. Officials at the Clinton Library expect a deluge of requests for access to some of the 80 million pages of presidential papers and 20 million e-mails stored at the library.
