"Items owned by Monica Lewinsky, especially relating to the Clinton scandal and Ken Starr investigation are exceedingly rare," Nate D. Sanders said in a statement, per Reuters. "This is, to my knowledge, the only collection of this nature to come to light."
As the Nate D. Sanders website notes, the items for sale include materials the former White House intern gave to her ex-lover Andy Bleiler and his wife. Per AFP, Monica Lewinsky had an affair with the married drama teacher for five years, including the time she spent at the White House with former President Bill Clinton.
Monica Lewinsky, of course, is most famous for her alleged affair with Clinton while working at the White House. The President was impeached by the House of Representatives for allegedly committing perjury and obstruction of justice while lying about this relationship. However, he was acquitted by the Senate and allowed to remain in office.
Per NBC News, the items apparently came from a group that Bleiler gave to special prosecutor Kenneth Starr during his investigation into Clinton's alleged affair. Bleiler's now ex-wife, Kate Nason, reportedly gave up the items after the Clinton hearings, and a third party has put them up for auction.
The Monica Lewinsky collection does include one item from Clinton, a signed letter written on White House stationery. The greeting wishes Bleiler a happy birthday.
There are also several items of clothing for sale, including Monica Lewinsky' black negligee. However, as Daily Mail notes, the infamous blue dress used in the Clinton trial is not included. Per ABC News, that semen-stained dress was a main piece of evidence during the Clinton hearings. The former intern had tried to get the dress back for years before prosecutors finally sent it back in the summer of 2001. However, Lewinsky told ABC that she would burn the garment if it ever was returned, as she thought it was humiliating.
Other items in the Monica Lewinsky collection include letters from the former intern to the Bleilers, a signed photo of Clinton and his wife Hillary, and White House collectibles like M&Ms and matches.
Despite the great publicity surrounding this Monica Lewinsky collection, it has not gained many bids thus far. As of Tuesday morning, only two people have put in money for the items, with the current bid set at $2,750.
However, Laura Yntema, an auction manager at Nate D. Sanders, told Daily Mail that the bidding could go up to a quarter of a million dollars, as the action usually begins on the last day. The items will be available for bidding until Thursday.
