Earlier in the day, Senators questioned former White House attorney Neil Eggleston and top Clinton aide Bruce Lindsey about Eggleston's attempt to share with Lindsey confidential documents concerning the Whitewater investigation. Those materials detailed a Small Business Administration criminal investigation of Clinton antagonist David Hale, an Arkansas judge; impeding the probe in any way would have been illegal. Investigators reviewed Eggleston's phone records, which indicate he left a message for Lindsey offering to brief him on the SBA papers. Lindsey was handling Whitewater press inquiries for the White House. But while Eggleston maintained that doing so would not have been improper, he stated that as far as he can remember, the meeting never took place, since they were too busy.
