New photos released by the Clinton Presidential Library show then-President Bill Clinton laughing, smiling and talking together at two separate events in the last year of Clinton’s presidency.

Others show the two along with Trump’s then-girlfriend Melania Knauss and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kylie Bax, who was wearing a Playboy bunny shirt.

The 22 photos were taken by the White House photographer during two events: one, a fundraiser Clinton attended at Trump Tower in June 2000 for Rep. Ed Towns, D-New York, and the other, the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows, New York, and they were released under a Freedom of Information Act request by Politico.

According to Politico, the National Archives has located but won’t be releasing 59 photos of Hillary Clinton and Trump at a fundraiser in New York in 1994 because they fall into the category of “personal records” and are not included in the Presidential Records Act.
