House to Focus on Fund-Raising Memos Withheld by Administration: Panel to Ask If Aides Obstructed Justice
Seper, Jerry, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)
Two memos that the White House withheld for months from congressional investigators have become the newest focus of a House subcommittee inquiry into the administration's use of a secret database for political gains.
Investigators want to know if administration officials, including high-ranking aides in the White House counsel's office, withheld the documents to protect President Clinton and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton in an ongoing inquiry of a White House database known as WHODB.
Congressional sources said investigators are trying to determine if White House officials lied to the subcommittee about the existence of the documents or purposely sought to obstruct justice by hiding them from the House Government Reform and Oversight subcommittee, chaired by Rep. David M. McIntosh, Indiana Republican.
