WASHINGTON: To hear George Stephanopoulos tell it, Ken Starr's prosecutors are getting desperate. "My guess is that they are now casting out to a lot of people who worked on the first floor just to see what they knew about the layout, I guess what we knew about Monica Lewinsky," Stephanopoulos told Larry King on CNN Monday. The Clinton adviser turned pundit has been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury Tuesday merely, he says, because he once met Lewinsky in a Starbuck's. He quipped that Starr might as well just tune in to hear him give evidence on King's show.

Special ReportThe Whitewater prosecutor could have more luck with the White House logs. According to the New York Times, the records show Lewinsky visited the White House 37 times after moving to the Pentagon. Trouble is, it's purely circumstantial. As is the latest "evidence" of what Stephanopoulos described as "a bit of a well-funded right-wing conspiracy": Remember the receipts of packages reportedly sent to Clinton via his personal secretary, Betty Currie? WRC-TV reports that the Washington courier service that provided them is owned by relatives of Lucianne Goldberg, Linda Tripp's New York book agent. Curiouser and curiouser.
