   Per a February 6th New York Times report, it now appears that
another member of the "vast right wing conspiracy," has shockingly
emerged from the "inner sanctum" of the White House. -- The President's
own secretary, Bette Currie.
  The Times reports that Clinton's personal secretary has told
investigators Clinton gave her an account of his relationship with
former White House intern Monica Lewinsky that mirrored his testimony
in the Paula Jones lawsuit.

Quoting lawyers familiar with her account and with Clinton's testimony
in the Jones sexual harassment lawsuit, the Times said the secretary,
Betty Currie, told investigators Clinton said he had never been alone
with Lewinsky and had "resisted her sexual advances".

Currie, however, has told investigators the president and Lewinsky
sometimes were alone, the newspaper quoted the lawyers as saying.

The Times also reported that Currie has turned over gifts to investigators
that she retrieved from Lewinsky, including a hat pin, a brooch and a
dress, again quoting lawyers familiar with her account.

The Times cited lawyers familiar with Lewinsky's account to Whitewater
independent counsel Kenneth Starr. According to that account, Lewinsky
said she discussed the demand for the gifts with Clinton in late December,
and he told her if she did not have the gifts, she would not have to turn
them over.

Soon after, Currie collected the items from Lewinsky. And two weeks ago
Currie turned over a box of gifts to investigators working for Starr.

It was not clear who, if anyone, instructed Currie to retrieve the gifts
from Lewinsky, the Times said.


  It sounds like its about time to activater HR 304 which:
Directs the Committee on the Judiciary to undertake an inquiry into
whether grounds exist to impeach William Jefferson Clinton, the
President of the United States.
  Whereas considerable evidence has been developed from a broad array of
credible sources that William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United
States, has engaged in a systemic effort to obstruct, undermine, and
compromise the legitimate and proper functions and processes of the
executive branch: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Committee on
the Judiciary is directed to investigate and report to the House whether
grounds exist to impeach William Jefferson Clinton, President of the
United States. Upon completion of such investigation, that Committee
shall report to the House its recommendations with respect thereto,
including, if the Committee so determines, a resolution of impeachment
