Starr's Subpoena Carefully Crafted, For A Reason

By John King/CNN

WASHINGTON (Jan. 29) -- Independent Counsel Ken Starr's subpoena to the White House for documents related to Monica Lewinsky is carefully written to exclude newspaper articles and other media clippings, an apparent lesson from past requests for White House documents.

Administration sources tell CNN the blanket subpoena seeks all correspondence, including e-mail, mentioning Lewinsky. But the requests for all such documents, through Jan. 20, 1998, has an underlined portion excluding newspaper articles and media clippings in White House files or in the possession of White House aides.

Apparently it is for good reason. One White House source says that in the past, as a way of voicing their displeasure with Starr's investigation, White House aides would include the voluminous packet of newspaper clips most receive each day through the White House press office, ultimately adding thousands of pages to the number of documents forwarded to Starr's office for lawyers to sift through.
