Reno Meets With Thompson, Glenn

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Feb. 11) -- Attorney General Janet Reno met privately Wednesday morning with Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) concerning release of the Senate Governmental Affair's Committee's report on campaign finance irregularities, Thompson's office confirmed.

A senate source would not divulge the topics discussed, however, except to deny that the meeting related to China. The Washington Post reported in Tuesday's editions that Reno wanted to share "additional material" relating to China. The source said that report was not accurate.

The meeting was in Thompson's office on Capitol Hill, and Sen. John Glenn of Ohio, the highest-ranking Democrat on the committee, also was present, the source said.

A Republican draft of the committee's final report is critical of the FBI and Justice Department, accusing them of being slow to divulge critical information to the Senate committee's investigators.

The committee also has sought and received FBI and CIA clearance to declassify some intelligence material regarding an alleged plot by the Chinese governemnt to funnel illegal money into U.S. elections.
