More on Lewis

From Gene Lyons' Fools for Scandal, p. 121:

First he [democratic counsel Ben-Veniste] confronted her with an FBI agent's contemporaneous notes to the effect that -- contrary to her deposition -- she'd begun pestering him about her 1992 referral within days of filing it and had made "very dramatic" pronouncements about altering history. There had been similar testimony from the U.S. Attorney's staff. Evidence showed Lewis had made a minimum of eight attempts to prod the thing along before the 1992 election. In her deposition, she'd sworn she'd made none."

The papers of record, of course, ignored all this in favor of screaming GENNIFER FLOWERS because her name had come up.
