BATON ROUGE, La. (AllPolitics, Jan. 17) -- Hillary Clinton will be indicted on Whitewater charges but not convicted, according to a prediction by the first lady's preeminent press antagonist. New York Times columnist William Safire, who last January called the first lady a "congenital liar," conjectured Thursday in a speech before the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry that Mrs. Clinton would face charges but that the president "will not give her a pardon. Instead, he will let the wheels of justice turn and sit by her in the courtroom, holding her hand when appropriate."
That's dated Jan. 17, 1997, 3 days before Bill's 2nd inauguration.
