‘Impeachment: American Crime Story’ episode 2 is titled ‘The President Kissed Me’ and opens in November 1995 when the government faces a shutdown, and a number of employees are let go of their jobs. As a result, the work fell upon the shoulders of interns such as Lewinsky. Amidst the increased responsibility, Lewinsky spends more time around President Clinton, and they begin to flirt. Soon after, Lewinsky confesses to having a crush on the President, and they share a kiss.
Romance blossoms between the duo, but people around the White House begin to notice, and Lewinsky moves from there to the Pentagon.

Meanwhile, Clinton is re-elected as the President, and when he fails to keep up the promise of bringing Lewinsky back to the White House, she divulges the details of her affair to Tripp.
Elsewhere, Paula Jones’ case against the President catches the attention of activist Susan Carpenter-McMillan, and she decides to help Jones. A couple of years after Lewinsky’s affair with the President began, journalist Michael Isikoff arrives at the Pentagon to talk to Tripp about Kathleen Willey’s allegations against President Clinton.
