First Lady May Have To Testify

Associated Press
 

The possibility that Hillary Rodham Clinton will eventually have to appear before Congress in the Whitewater and travel office affairs seemed to rise Sunday, with Sen. Alfonse D’Amato saying newly produced documents raise a broad spectrum of new questions about her role in both matters.

D’Amato said that billing documents the White House turned over to the Senate Friday show that Hillary Clinton has not told the truth about Whitewater.

In a television appearance, D’Amato, R-N.Y., said the committee is growing increasingly frustrated with delays in turning over Whitewater information and doubtful of getting truthful answers from White House aides.

The billing records show “tremendous inconsistencies” with Hillary Clinton’s sworn statements to federal regulators that she performed only minimal work for her Whitewater partner’s savings and loan, said D’Amato.

Hillary Clinton’s answers are “not the truth,” D’Amato added. “We’ve had this kind of thing over and over again from her people who have stonewalled us.”
