Washington AC/DC (Reuterus) - "He told us he was just stargazing at Comet Ison, Mr President," the chief of White House security explained to Barack Obama this morning, "until we extracted the smart chip that records everything he pointed the binocs at."
The incident began after First Lady Michelle Obama accidentally left the Lewinsky Mammorial Power Shower Room window wide open during a mid-morning hose-down two weeks ago.
The purpose-built residency wet room is a firm favorite with presidential wives on account of its cellulite-blasting, butt-toning gizmos that turn on multiple water jets at the touch of a button.
Those gadgets will continue to sculpt the First Lady's ample rear despite the Clinton incident, a presidential aide later remarked, but the 6ft by 4 ft frosted glass window will now be bricked up for the duration.
Unfortunately the President's security detail is still uncertain about what's happened to the Clinton shower footage because of a mystery 'disappearing act' that saw the chip vanish soon after confiscation.
Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky is 69.
