Gary Condit, the former Democratic California congressman connected with Washington, D.C. intern Chandra Levy in 2001 before she disappeared and was later found murdered, broke his silence about the case on the "Dr. Phil" show.

The Condit interview with host Phil McGraw is scheduled to air on Thursday, according to People magazine. In a released clip of the interview, Condit, now 68, appeared to deny having a relationship with the 24-year-old intern before her disappearance.

Condit reportedly admitted to police in 2001 that he had an affair with Levy but has since denied the relationship, People wrote.

"I saw her one time outside the office at a restaurant, and she came by my condo once — well, maybe twice," Condit told McGraw in the released video clip. "I want to make this clear: There's nothing unusual about someone coming by my condo, a lot of people did."

Condit, who was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives at the time, said in the clip that police latched onto him admitting that Levy had visited his residence.

"(The police) were trying to make something out of everything that they could," said Condit, who was married at the time.

Levy went missing May 1, 2001 and her skeletal remains were found a year later in Washington, D.C.'s Rock Creek Park, according to The Washington Post. The initial investigation and affair made national headlines, but Condit was eventually cleared by police.

Imgmar Guandique was charged and found guilty in Levy's death in 2010, but was granted a new trial last year after attorneys learned that his trial's star witness, cellmate Armando Morales, did not give truthful testimony, the Post reported. Prosecutors dropped charges against Guandique.

"(Guandique) has maintained since the beginning, when he passed an FBI administered lie detector test, that he did not kill Ms. Levy," a statement from the D.C. Public Defender Service stated in July about the case, noted the Post. "It is now clear that the jailhouse informant, who was central to the government's case, was a perjurer who too easily manipulated the prosecutors."
