Clinton Scandal Host Renee Montagne talks to Clinton biographer Joe Klein about Independent Counsel Robert Ray's report on the Monica Lewinsky affair. In a 237-page report released yesterday, Ray concludes that he had enough evidence to indict and convict former President Clinton on criminal charges for perjury and obstructing justice. Clinton admitted publicly on his last day in office that he had testified falsely under oath, and his license to practice law was suspended for five years. Clinton's defenders say that Ray is "editorializing" in his report and could not possibly have gotten a conviction. Ray's final report on the Whitewater investigation is expected within the next few weeks.
