No Mystery On Whitewater Tape
ABC got audio tape the old-fashioned way; they bought a copy from the court
WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, May 21) -- It turns out there was no mystery after all to how ABC News got an audio tape of a closed-door Whitewater court session. The newshounds bought it, legally.
On the tape, a deputy to special prosecutor Kenneth Starr said first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton could be indicted. A court clerk has confirmed that after the case involving Mrs. Clinton's claim of attorney-client privilege was unsealed earlier this month, anyone with $15 could buy a copy of the audiotape, which is what ABC News did.
The tape, which ABC reported on over the weekend, was provided by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. When it broadcast sections of the tape, ABC didn't say how it got the recording.
