REP. DAN Burton of Indiana is being criticized even by some of his fellow Republicans for releasing doctored transcripts of taped conversations between Webster L. Hubbell and his wife, made while Hubbell was in prison.The way the tapes were edited makes even protestations of innocence sound like confessions to crimes.Some Democrats in Congress and some journalists are comparing this to the heyday of Sen. Joe McCarthy's demagogic reign of terror back in the 1950s. For example, New York Times columnist Frank Rich said it reminded him of "the prototype of 1954" when during Senate hearings on alleged Communists in the Army McCarthy tried to make points with a doctored photograph.

WASHINGTON -- House Speaker Newt Gingrich said yesterday that he will seek approval for a special committee to investigate whether campaign donations -- some of them linked to the Chinese military -- led the Clinton administration to approve the export of sensitive missile technology to China.For Gingrich, the committee could prove to be a stroke of political genius. It would shift control of the key elements of the House's campaign finance inquiry away from discredited Rep. Dan Burton to a hand-picked committee that can move the spotlight back to allegations of Democratic abuses.

WASHINGTON -- The House erupted yesterday into a partisan feud sparked by a recent barrage of attacks from Speaker Newt Gingrich, who has accused President Clinton and other Democrats of concealing campaign fund-raising abuses in the 1996 campaign.The acrimony threatens Congress' ability to forge agreements over a range of delicate issues, from tobacco control to health insurance reform to sweeping changes in bankruptcy laws."The Republican consultants tell the Republicans to crank up the rhetoric, and what do you know, House Republican leadership does it simultaneously," said Sen. Tom Daschle of South Dakota, the Senate Democratic leader.

WASHINGTON -- The fight between Rep. Dan Burton and House Democrats is another of those sham battles for which Congress has become famous. Nothing is as it seems.Mr. Burton, the loose-cannon Indiana conservative, seems to be suggesting that if he is allowed to grant immunity to four witnesses before the House Government Reform and OversightCommittee, he will open some rich vein of political gold. Finally, he seems to be suggesting the nation will see how grossly the Democrats violated campaign finance laws in 1996.
