White House may get Whitewater subpoena
Clinton says he will veto GOP budget
Daily Wire Services
WASHINGTON - Republicans on
the Senate Whitewater committee said
yesterday that the Clinton administra-
tion has delayed turning over poten-
tially incriminating telephone records
and has shredded Treasury Department
documents that could relate to their
investigation. Chairman Alfonse M.
D'Amato (D-N.Y.) said the committee
would take the unusual step today of
voting to subpoena the White House for
records it is seeking.
At a special meeting, D'Amato out-
lined new information that he said casts
doubt on the truthfulness of several
witnesses in this summer's hearings
into the handling ofdocuments in deputy
White House counsel Vincent Foster's
office after his suicide two years ago.
The committee will issue subpoenas
recalling two of those witnesses next
week: first lady Hillary Rodham
Clinton's chief of staff, Margaret Wil-
liams, and the first lady's close friend,
Republicans said newly obtained
phone records suggest Mrs. Clinton was
very likely involved in the decision to
prevent Justice Department officials and
law enforcement authorities from
searching Foster's office for clues to

his death. The White House has denied
Mrs. Clinton was involved, and both
Williams and Thomases testified that
they did not speak with her about the
documents in Foster's office.
D'Amato said the White House has
engaged in "an obvious pattern of de-
lay" in turning over the thousands of
records sought by the Senate. "We will
not let the Clinton White House toy
with this committee any longer," he
said. He also suggested the committee
may have to call Mrs. Clinton to testify
to resolve questions about her conver-
sations with Thomases and Williams
after Foster's death.
D'Amato's actions yesterday repre-
sented a sharp departure from efforts to
date to avoid offending committee
Democrats, a posture that has drawn
criticism from some in his own party.
Indeed, committee Democrats com-
plained that Republicans had a new
level ofpartisanship into the investiga-
tion. They said the committee's requests
to the White House had been "overly
broad." In the end, though, some said
they would agree to the subpoena if its
scope could be narrowed. The panel
recessed until this morning as lawyers
worked out the subpoena language.
D'Amato said that in the future all
documents and witnesses would be sub-
ject to subpoena, to put an end to delays
and impose sanctions for withholding
Among the records the committee
requested Aug. 25 but has not received
are e-mail messages on subjects that
include the Clintons' Whitewater real
estate investment and their onetime
business partner, former savings and
loan owner James B. McDougal; com-
munications by White House aides with
anyone at the savings and loan cleanup
agency; and records pertaining to the
criminal investigation of McDougal's
Madison Guaranty S&L or Whitewater.
White House spokesman Mark
Fabiani said D'Amato's intention to
issue subpoenas "is a witch hunt" and
represents a "disintegration" of his
claims ofimpartiality. The White House
and the Clintons' lawyers have turned
over 34,000 records, he said, and are
"being as open as we can possibly be."
Fabiani said two disputed areas in-
volve documents the White House pre-
pared for the independent counsel's on-
going Whitewater inquiry, including
interviews with the Clintons, and pa-
pers prepared for the current congres-
In addition to the phone records,
which originally were sought by the
committee in June and requested again
in August, Republican counsel
Michael Chertoff also told the com-
mittee that an official of the Treasury
Department inspector general's of-
fice approached the committee within
the past 10 days and said there has
been "a significant amount of shred-
ding" of documents.
WASHINGTON - President Clinton declared yesterday ---- -------
that his administration was succeeding in cutting the federal
deficit and said he will veto Republican plans to balance the
budget and cut taxes.
As the House and Senate began debating those proposals, a
combative president lashed out at Republicans while an-
nouncingthat the deficit plummeted from $203 billion to $164
billion during the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.
Clinton used the shrinking deficit numbers to validate his
policies and attack GOP budget proposals as extreme. "If
Republicans plunge ahead and pass this budget, I will veto it
and demand a budget that reflects our values," he said during Clinton
a White House news conference. "I am not going to let
anybody hold Medicare, or education or the environment or the future of this
Congressional GOP leaders dismissed the veto threats and voiced confidence
they would pass their massive budget plans this week, as resistance from several
dozen Republican moderates and conservatives began to crumble in a final wave,
Procter & Gamble
seeks 'Olestra' OK
WASHINGTON -Just as the revo-
lutionary new experimental fat substi-
tute, Olestra, appeared closer than ever
before to reaching the marketplace, an
influential consumer group charged
yesterday that the substance was un-
safe, and asked the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration to deny approval.
The Center for Science in the Public
Interest said that Olestra depletes the
body of critical carotenoids, such as
beta carotene, which are protective
against numerous disorders, and caused
serious gastrointestinal problems, in-

Astronaut tosses first
pitch in Earth orbit
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - An
astronaut uncorked what he called the
fastest slowball in the world yester.
Commander Kenneth Bowersox
threw an oh-so-slow pitch aboard the
orbiting space shuttle Columbia for a
videotaped World Series promo.
The shuttle was speeding around
Earth at 17,500 mph; a major-league,
fastball is a mere 95 mph or so.
It took seven takes to make the video
of Bowersox throwing out the first ball
of the fifth game of the series. The best
take will be broadcast at the start of
today's game between the Cleveland
Indians and Atlanta Braves.
