Ickes Testimony

— NPR's Peter Overby reports on the acrimonious exchanges between Republicans on the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee and President Clinton's former Deputy Chief of Staff, Harold Ickes, during Ickes' seven hours of testimony yesterday. Ickes strongly denied that he or the President did anything illegal, in raising money for last year's election campaign. Committee Republicans failed to establish a direct link between the Clinton White House and an alleged fundraising swap between the Democratic National Committee and the reelection campaign of Teamsters Union President Ron Carey.
