NPR's Chitra Ragavan reports that White House attorneys and Whitewater prosecutors are trying to work out their differences over what questions White House aide Bruce Lindsey will be required to answer before the grand jury investigating allegations of an affair between President Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. The President can invoke executive privilege to prevent Lindsey from talking about confidential conversations he had with Clinton, but it would likely lead to a long legal battle and a judge overseeing the grand jury has asked both sides to try to seek a solution.
