Clinton Aide Finds Whitewater Notes

One of President Clinton’s top aides, after telling Congress he didn’t take notes on a key Whitewater strategy meeting, belatedly produced his long-sought jottings Friday night.

The three pages of handwritten notes by senior White House adviser Bruce Lindsey were faxed to the Senate Whitewater Committee after Lindsey’s attorney, Allen Snyder, said he found them Wednesday among thousands of documents that Lindsey had turned over to him months ago.

Lindsey had told the committee on Jan 16: “I don’t remember taking specific notes” at a Nov. 5, 1993 meeting of top White House officials to brief Clinton’s private lawyer on the then-growing Whitewater controversy.

The notes do not appear to break new ground.
