Starr undergoes day-long questioning

HEARING
Continued from Page IA
Rodino, the Democrat who oversaw the Watergate
impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon
in the same room in 1974.
Starr's testimony was the first the committee
had taken since receiving boxes of his evidence
this fall. While the full GOP-controlled House has
voted for an open-ended inquiry, Republican
appetite for prolonged proceedings has dimin-
ished markedly in the wake of election setbacks.
Thus, it was not clear whether - or when - arti-
cles of impeachment would ever emerge from the
panel.
Several sources, speaking on condition of
anonymity, say Rep. Bob Livingston (R-La.), who
is in line to become House speaker in January, has
said in private conversations he wants the issue
resolved before he takes office.
Still, Hyde announced to the displeasure of
Democrats that the committee would vote on issu-
ing subpoenas to additional witnesses. Among
them was Robert Bennett, the lawyer who repre-
sented Clinton in Paula Jones' sexual harassment
case.
Peppered with questions about alleged inappro-
priate treatment of Lewinsky, grand jury leaks, his
own private law clients and other matters, Starr had
made only one concession as the hearing moved
into the evening. He agreed to provide a list of
clients from his former law firm.
At the same time, when Rep. Maxine Waters
(D-Calif.), asked him directly whether he felt
he had a conflict of interest, he replied, "I did
not."
He stoutly turned aside all suggestions of prose-
cutorial misconduct, although at several points he
told his questioners they might well have a differ-
ent view of the law.

WEST BANK
Continued from Page IA
square miles, of the land in the deal
moves from joint jurisdiction to sole
Palestinian control.
The Palestinians already have full
control of 3 percent of the West Bank
and joint jurisdiction over another 24
percent.
Unlike earlier pullbacks, this one
held little promise of drama.
No army bases are being dismantled
and all Israeli and Palestinian troops
have to do is move yellow-and-black
road markers the size of washing
machines to road junctions to demar-
cate the new dividing lines.
Last night, the cement blocks were
still lined up at the Israeli army base of
Dotan, south of Jenin. Today, Israeli
and Palestinian officers are scheduled
to meet to finalize the transfer with a
handshake, followed by an evacuation
of Israeli troops expected to be com-
pleted in a few hours.
To Jewish settlers in the area, the pull-

back meant new anxietv. and some were
twing with the idea of returning to Israel.
"We moved for peace and quiet, but
if we don't feel safe, we are nour,
time," said Miri Deutsch, a housewife
in the Ganim settlement of 51 families
which after the pullback will be sur-
rounded on three sides by Palestinian-
controlled areas.
In Qabatieh, a town of 17,000
Palestinians just south of Jenin, most
residents were indifferent to the prospect
of coming under full Palestinian rule. No
Arafat posters or Palestinian flags deco-
rated the streets in anticipation.
"The Palestinian Authority does
commit certain violations, but its still
better than the occupying power
(Israel)," said Ibrahim Zidan, a 36-year-
old farmer.
Israel's 17-member Cabinet just
barely approved the first stage of the
peace accord under which Israel is to
hand over 13 percent of the West Bank
in three stages by the end of January, in
exchange for a Palestinian crackdown
on Islamic militants.

Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr is sworn in on Capital Hill yesterday prior to testifying before the
House Judiciary Committee's impeachment hearing.

"Obviously this body is at liberty to reject" the
material as not being "substantial, credible evi-
dence" of impeachable offenses, he said.
He said the president was at the heart of a "pat-
tern of obstruction" that was inconsistent with his
duty.
Starr, himselfthe target of ceaseless attacks from
Clinton's defenders, spoke calmly and methodical-
ly - but unambiguously - as he offered his first

public accounting of his investigation into the pres-
ident's relationship with Lewinsky and several
other matters.
"He testified that he could not recall being alone
with Lewinsky. That was untrue," Starr said of the
president. "He testified that he could not recall ever
being in the Oval Office hallway with Ms.
Lewinsky, except perhaps when she was delivering
pizza. That was untrue," he added.

Conyers questions motives of counsel

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S.
Rep. John Conyers of Detroit, the
leading Democrat on the .congres-
sional panel conducting a presiden-
tial impeachment hearing, told
Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr
yesterday that he went too far in his
investigation of the president.
"While an independent counsel
can and should pursue a case with
vigor, I and many others believe that
Mr. Starr has crossed that line into
obsession," an indignant Conyers
said at the hearing.
As the ranking Democrat on the
Judiciary Committee, Conyers was

one of only two members of the
House allowed to speak at length
before Starr - the key witness -
presented his case before the com-
mittee. The other was committee
chairperson Henry Hyde (R-Ill).
Conyers called Starr "a federally
paid sex police officer spending mil-
lions of dollars to trap an unfaithful
spouse."
At times, the Detroit Democrat
pointed his finger, apparently at
Starr, for emphasis.
"It is fundamental to the integrity
of this inquiry to examine whether the
independent counsel's evidence is

Mr, Starr has crossed the line into
obsession"

tainted, whether conclusions are col-
ored by improper motive," said
Conyers, a longtime Starr critic.
Conyers suggested that Starr may have
improperly threatened witnesses or
violated the law by "leaking grand jury

material to humiliate the president."
Starr sat emotionless through
Conyers 10-minute attack on his con-
duct. But he later defended himself,
saying that he acted within the law and
did not release grand jury testimony.
