In the second day of congressional Whitewater hearings, former presidential counsel Bernard Nussbaum repeatedly denied he had tried to influence the government's investigation into Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan. Nussbaum resigned in April under accusations of mishandling the affair. While he admitted he had been shocked by the Resolution Trust Corporation's appointment of Jay Stephens, a former Republican federal prosecutor and a sharp Clinton critic, to investigate the failure of the savings institution, he said he had not attempted to remove Stephens. Nussbaum was followed by the "White House 10" -- high-level Clinton Administration officials, who all copped a plea of no wrongdoing.
