At the time, career civil servants at the Resolution Trust Corp. wanted most to avoid being second-guessed in their probe of a failed Arkansas thrift with links to President Clinton and the Whitewater affair. So it seemed natural to hire a former federal prosecutor, a Republican, who would never be accused of taking a dive for the White House.

Former Washington city employee Charles Lewis, a friend of Mayor Marion Barry, faced new narcotics charges. One count of conspiracy and five counts of cocaine distribution were added to the 10 charges lodged against him earlier. "Today's indictment alleges significant involvement by Mr. Lewis in a pattern of narcotics trafficking over several years in the District of Columbia and elsewhere in the United States," said U.S. Atty. Jay B. Stephens. Federal investigations of Lewis began after two city police officers were called off an attempt last Dec. 22 to make an undercover drug purchase from Lewis when Barry showed up at Lewis' hotel room.

Mayor Marion Barry pleaded innocent to six added misdemeanor charges of using and conspiring to obtain cocaine. "I feel fantastic today. I got a great defense team," Barry said after entering his plea. U.S. Atty. Jay B. Stephens and Barry's lawyer, R. Kenneth Mundy, said they hoped to begin his trial June 4, but Mundy said the new charges--part of an overall, 14-count indictment--might make it difficult to start on time. The new charges allege that the mayor used cocaine as long ago as 1984.
