NEW YORK — Investigators are trying to learn if a missing file on a former business associate of President Clinton was taken from the office of a White House aide after he committed suicide, it was reported today.
The federal investigators have been told that Vincent Foster Jr. kept a file in his office on James McDougal and Whitewater Development Corp., McDougal's real estate investment firm, the New York Times reported.
Foster committed suicide on July 20. The file was not listed in an inventory of his office that was conducted two days after his death, the newspaper reported, quoting law enforcement sources.
It might have been turned over to Foster's widow in a box of personal items given to the family's lawyer, one source said.
