POLITICS/LAW: From The Department of Not Moving On, Part II

Following after the decision to deny the Clintons' legal fees for the Whitewater investigation, the DC Circuit denies Monica Lewinsky's application for $1.1 million in legal fees from the Independent Counsel investigation; the court recites the relevant details of the scheme to give Lewinsky a job and her offer of financial inducements to Linda Tripp to have both of them give false testimony, among other things, and concludes that she (and Clinton) would have been the subject of an investigation even in the absence of the Independent Counsel statute. (Of course, coming from the court that appointed Ken Starr and referred this investigation to him, this isn't a surprising conclusion).
