President and Hillary Clinton's lawyer says of the guilty plea of Webster Hubbell, "this matter simply does not concern the president, the first lady or the Whitewater Development Corp. in any way." Even if that is true legally, Hubbell's admission that he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from law partners and clients (including federal agencies) and cheated on his income tax returns is politically damaging to the Clintons.Hubbell is Mrs. Clinton's former law partner and Mr. Clinton's golfing buddy.

Cannon of The Sun's national staff reintroduces the issues and the actors in that drama, one being performed on many stages.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- For months, a special prosecutor has worked with little public display on a variety of questions involving the Whitewater case. But today, one aspect of that investigation will assume a more visible role as the prosecutor, Robert B. Fiske Jr., and his team of lawyers conduct their first trial.The case involves two men accused of conspiring to defraud the Small Business Administration.Whether this otherwise garden-variety trial involving defendants peripheral to the overall Whitewater investigation will disclose any new details of the operations of the Whitewater Development Co. depends on the possible testimony of David Hale, a former municipal judge cooperating as part of a plea agreement.

THE subject of the Clintons' involvement in the Whitewater development project first came to public attention during the 1992 presidential primaries when Jerry Brown raised the matter. Bill Clinton's response to the allegation of impropriety was interesting. He didn't deny it. He didn't admit it. He just didn't answer it at all. Instead, he wagged a finger at Mr. Brown and warned him to stop "jumping all over my wife."In point of fact, Mr. Brown was not attacking Hillary (as Bill Clinton certainly knew)

While Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton may consider the furor caused by their investment in Whitewater Development Co. 12 years ago depressing, for James McDougal, their partner in the real estate venture, it suddenly has become utterly rejuvenating.Some months ago, he was lamenting with friends and interviewers about his miserable life, which he said would soon be ended by an assortment of medical problems. Now, he is running for Congress.His platform? It's not quite clear, but it has something to do with Whitewater.

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Jim Leach of Iowa, the Republican who is most vocal in calling for a special counsel to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton's Arkansas land investments, seems an unlikely type to be going after the scalp of a president. Indeed, he denies emphatically that he has any such intent.Leach, the ranking Republican on the House Banking Committee, is about as far removed from the stereotype of a vindictive right-wing fanatic -- as the White House tries to cast those who want a special counsel -- as is his fellow Iowan and unvarnished Democratic liberal, Sen. Tom Harkin.
