Senate Whitewater Committee Chairman Alfonse D'Amato plans to hold President Clinton's feet to the fire Wednesday with a full Senate vote that may force a court battle over access to the disputed notes of former Clinton aide William Kennedy. The White House, which argues that Kennedy's notes are protected under the attorney-client privilege, failed Monday to convince D'Amato to accept a restricted version of the papers, which the committee believes could shed light on whether two presidential aides interefered with two Whitewater-related criminal investigations in 1993. Even if the dispute fades, the panel has since made a more portentous demand: that the White House produce what it says are missing documents concerning Hillary Rodham Clinton's work for Madison Guaranty, the failed savings and loan at the heart of the scandal, including billing records from the Rose law firm that documented the extent of her involvement.
