A Loss for Words

November 1997
National Review;11/10/1997, Vol. 49 Issue 21, p14
This article deals with the inefficiency of U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno in settling the controversy in the fundraising efforts of the administration of President Bill Clinton in 1997. The author criticized the public official for her failure to recruit an independent counsel that would be helpful in the investigation of the issue. Hence, the negligence of the Attorney General intensified the opposition of the Republicans to the President. However, the essay suggested that the Republicans should focus on broader scandals faced by the administration.
