Court documents filed by the Justice Department say there is evidence that White House political director Janet G. Mullins helped encourage and direct the search of Bill Clinton's passport files. The documents, disclosed Monday, were filed by Atty. Gen. William P. Barr on Dec. 10 to support his request for an independent counsel in the case. They do not specify the nature of the evidence. But it was weighed by a special three-judge panel that then named Joseph E.

The State Department's internal investigation of the search of Gov. Bill Clinton's passport records could find no evidence of criminal wrongdoing, fraud, corruption or an effort to subvert U.S. foreign policy. What it did confirm was an improper use of authority--originating, it's believed, with just a few political appointees--intended "to influence the outcome of a presidential election." This improper action, acting Secretary of State Lawrence S.

The appointment of a special federal prosecutor to probe allegations that senior White House officials knew of efforts to obtain Bill Clinton's passport files underscores just how serious a breach of law and propriety this campaign episode was. Former U.S. Atty. Joseph E. diGenova, now in private practice, was picked as special counsel by a federal court panel. But the impetus for the move unexpectedly came from Atty. Gen. William P.

In an extraordinary eleventh-hour action, a federal court has named an independent counsel to investigate allegations that senior White House officials were involved in efforts to obtain Bill Clinton's passport files during the presidential campaign.
