Ex-Clinton Aide Snubs Subpoena

September 17, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Former White House personnel security director D. Craig Livingstone snubbed a House committee's subpoena, saying through his lawyer that he was tired of being "vilified and ridiculed." Livingstone presided over the White House's acquisition of hundreds of confidential FBI reports on former officials in previous Republican administrations. He had been ordered to show up for a deposition by lawyers for the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee. Instead his attorney, Randall J. Turk, delivered a letter dismissing the subpoena as "legally invalid." A committee spokesman, Edmund M. Amorosi, said that Livingstone's failure to appear, after agreeing to do so, was part of "a game plan" to stymie the FBI files investigation by delaying it until Congress adjourns.
