A Secret Service officer today flatly contradicted the White House account of the night of Vincent W. Foster Jr.’s death, telling the Senate Whitewater panel that he had seen Hillary Rodham Clinton’s top aide remove files from Mr. Foster’s office. The aide vehemently denied doing it.
Testifying under oath before the special Senate committee investigating Whitewater, the officer, Henry P. O’Neill, said that on July 20, 1993, several hours after Mr. Foster’s body was found in a Virginia park, he saw Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff, Margaret A. Williams, carrying two handfuls of folders from Mr. Foster’s office.
Miss Williams, who testified that she had gone to the White House that night after being called twice by the First Lady, said she had been drawn to a light in office of Mr. Foster, the deputy White House counsel, in the irrational hope that she would find her colleague still alive there.
She said that she had gone inside and wept as another aide looked for a suicide note, but that she did not remove any material from Mr. Foster’s office that evening and had never been instructed to remove any files. To support her position, she produced the results of a lie-detector test she said she passed last year in response to questions by Whitewater prosecutors about what she had done.
“To support her position, she produced the results of a lie-detector test she said she passed last year in response to questions by Whitewater prosecutors about what she had done.”
So now lie-dectector test are credible for the Clintons. Yet when it comes to the case of Peter Paul, they are not. hmm...
