SCANDALS, SEMI-SCANDALS, quasi-scandals, alleged scandals, purported scandals and all the other titillating matters affecting William Jefferson Clinton, present and past, have become a constant Washington entertainment somewhat akin to long-running soap opera.Will independent counsel Kenneth Starr indict the president and/or first lady? Will Susan MacDougal start chirping to escape the jail that is her fate for silence? Can ex-hubby Jim MacDougal establish his current veracity by citing how he flunked past lie-detector tests related to previous perjury?

WASHINGTON -- Let's use some imagination. Suppose that George Bush were still president. Suppose further that his former business partner of 14 years, found guilty of four felonies including fraud, has been sentenced to jail for contempt of court. The reason? Refusing to cooperate with a grand-jury investigation into the activities of the president.Would this not be front-page news, day after day? Would the jailed friend of the president not be featured on every network news broadcast regularly?

WASHINGTON -- In a move sure to fuel accusations of partisanship, congressional Republicans will announce this week that they intend to extend the Senate Whitewater Committee beyond its Feb. 29 expiration date, pushing the politically charged probe well into the presidential election year.Sources close to the committee headed by Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, the New York Republican who co-chairs the presidential campaign of Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, say the panel's interim report, slated for release tomorrow, will conclude that more time is needed to explore new information about first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Roger Altman's resignation as deputy secretary of the Treasury and Jean Hanson's as Treasury general counsel were no surprises. The Whitewater casualty list is getting long enough to be a political liability for President Clinton.Mr. Altman and Ms. Hanson still deny they did anything improper in briefing the White House counsel, Bernard Nussbaum, about a Resolution Trust Corp. criminal investigation into Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan, an institution linked to President and Mrs. Clinton and the Whitewater Development Co. Mr. Altman and Ms. Hanson also minimize misleading Congress about the briefings.

In announcing that it was ousting Independent Counsel Robert Fiske, chosen by Attorney General Janet Reno to investigate Whitewater-Madison Guaranty S&L matters, a special three-judge court issued this statement: "It is not our intent to impugn the attorney general's appointee, but rather to reflect the intent of the act that the actor be protected against perceptions of conflict. . . As Fiske was appointed by the incumbent administration the court therefore deems it in the best interest of the appearance of independence contemplated by the act that a person not affiliated with the incumbent administration be appointed."
