Lewinsky & Doj

NPR's Chitra Ragavan reports that the Justice Department finds itself at the center of a number of legal issues that have arisen during the independent counsel investigation into President's Clinton's alleged affair with a White House intern. The department has been asked to review the conduct of independent counsel Kenneth Starr, but is concerned about interfering too much into the investigation. Justice is also reviewing the issue of whether Starr can force Secret Service agents to testify about the president.
