Little Rock Grand Jury Ends

— NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on the conclusion of the Little Rock phase of Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr's Whitewater investigation, with the grand jury there issuing only one indictment after meeting for more than two years. Starr will continue calling witnesses before the Washington grand jury, where President Clinton's friend Vernon Jordan testified again yesterday. A federal judge has given Starr a victory by ruling that President Clinton cannot invoke executive privilege to keep his aides from testifying about their conversations with him regarding former White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Clinton's supporters point out that Starr's investigation has now been underway for more than four years, and allegations about the Clintons' failed Whitewater investment remain nothing more than unproven suspicions.
