White House Scandal At A Glance: Feb. 6

Today's developments:

  • David Kendall, the personal attorney for President Bill Clinton, has sent a letter to Independent Counsel Ken Starr seeking an end to what Kendall says are leaks from Starr's office. Kendall said he intended to seek "judicial relief," including contempt sanctions.

  • FBI agents assigned to Starr's investigation showed up Friday at the fraternity house of Monica Lewinsky's younger brother, CNN has learned. Michael Lewinsky, 19 and a student at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, was questioned about his sister, according to sources.

  • A source familiar with the Lewinsky investigation tells CNN that White House secretary Betty Currie told the independent counsel's office she knows of several occasions when Clinton and the former White House intern met alone. The source, however, refused to discuss Currie's testimony to the grand jury investigating Clinton, and declined comment when asked if Currie had offered any evidence of a sexual relationship between Clinton and Lewinsky.

  • Currie's lawyer, Lawrence Wechsler, denied news reports that Clinton coached Currie to coordinate her memory with his in connection with Lewinsky's visits to the White House. "I want to be absolutely clear: to the extent there is any implication or the slightest suggestion that Mrs. Currie believed that the president or anyone else tried to influence her recollection, that is absolutely false and a mischaracterization of the facts."

  • A senior advisor to Clinton confirms to CNN the president called Currie to a White House meeting after he gave his deposition in the Paula Jones case to discuss his recollection of Lewinsky. The source vehemently objects to any characterization of the discussion as Clinton pressuring her to hide anything or to lie. The source says Clinton said his own memory was hazy, and that he wanted to bounce his recollections off Currie to see if he was right.
  • Clinton again refused to elaborate on his relationship with Lewinsky. Asked if he would ever consider resigning, Clinton said, "Never." Clinton received support from British Prime Minister Tony Blair at a news conference.

  • Lewinsky's lawyer Bill Ginsburg says he has a binding agreement with Starr granting his client full immunity in exchange for her cooperation with Starr's investigation. Ginsburg blasted Starr's tactics, saying he has engaged "in the same pattern of abuse" that he's committed against others in the investigation.

  • Starr has said there was a noon ET deadline Friday for Lewinsky to agree to an interview next week, saying she has a credibility problem. But the deadline came and went, and Ginsburg said, "We're perfectly happy to make her available once they live up to the [immunity] deal they made."
