Willey, a former White House aide, is cooperating with Kenneth Starr's probe of President Clinton's relationship with Lewinsky, a former White House intern, and alleged efforts to cover it up.

White House deputy chief of staff John Podesta also showed up at the Washington courthouse Thursday. But he left a short while later, without testifying.
