Clinton Coverup

March 9, 2000

If you talk about a White House cover-up, most people will think you are talking about the Nixon White House. But the latest evidence seems to point to the Clinton White House as well. A former career White House employee has charged the Clinton administration with attempting to hide from Congress and Kenneth Starr incriminating White House e-mail messages.

The e-mail messages were hidden by a software glitch when the White House computers were initially searched in response to congressional and independent counsel subpoenas. Sheryl Hall, a onetime head of computer operations in the Clinton White House, says that when the glitch was discovered, Clinton administration officials conspired to prevent Congress from receiving the information.

The information that was withheld contained all the incoming e-mail sent to White House figures over the sensitive two-year period from 1996 to 1998. This included messages to President Clinton and his key staff.

A government contractor who discovered the glitch searched the e-mail data and believed it held damaging information relating to the Monica Lewinsky investigation, Vice President Goreís fundraising activities, and other Clinton scandals. Another contractor (with Northrop-Gruman) was told by Mark Lindsay, director of the White House Office of Administration, that Lindsay had a ďjail cellĒ with the contractorís "name on it" if he divulged any information about the suppressed e-mail messages.

Meanwhile Sheryl Hall found that her duties were stripped from her when she expressed concern about the suppressed e-mail messages to administration officials. They called it "The Tripp Treatment." By the way, they called it "The Tripp Treatment" long before any of us had even heard of Linda Tripp and what happened to her.

At the moment an investigation is beginning in the matter, but I doubt this is the last we will hear of a Clinton cover-up. Iím pretty sure there is more to come.
