— NPR's Peter Overby reports that the trustees for President and Mrs. Clinton's legal defense fund have decided to dissolve it and recommend that the Clinton's use other methods of raising money to pay their lawyers. Their latest legal bill is for almost 172-thousand dollars, the cost of defending Mr. Clinton against Republican allegations that he violated campaign fundraising laws in the last election. Since Bill Clinton took office, he and his wife have incurred legal bills of nearly four-MILLION dollars.
