NPR's Barbara Bradley reports on a hearing today about the Independent Counsel law, and about questions regarding Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. At the Senate hearing, Republican and Democratic senators signaled they think independent counsels have had too much power and too little accountability, and the law should be allowed to expire. Meanwhile, the three-judge panel who appointed Starr to investigate Whitewater, and later other issues, is considering whether the Justice Department has the legal authority to investigate him regarding leaks to the news media and contacts with attorneys for Paula Jones.
