In a ruling that prosecutors attacked as dangerous, the judge in the Susan McDougal contempt trial decided Tuesday that the jury can hear allegations of harassment against Kenneth W. Starr's office made by a Virginia woman under indictment in the Monica S. Lewinsky investigation. The decision was a key victory for McDougal in trying to turn the tables on Starr and effectively put him on trial for aggressive tactics used in prosecuting her and other supporters of President Clinton.

The only person charged so far in connection with the Monica S. Lewinsky investigation went on trial here Monday, as prosecutors sought to show that money and loyalty drove Julie Hiatt Steele to cover up President Clinton's alleged groping of a White House volunteer.

A deadlocked jury forced a mistrial Friday in the obstruction case against a Virginia woman accused of covering up an alleged "groping" by President Clinton at the White House, dealing independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr his second setback in a month. Although prosecutors must now decide whether to seek a retrial of Julie Hiatt Steele, the 52-year-old defendant was already declaring victory after the jury deliberated for nearly 10 hours without reaching a verdict.

Jurors began their deliberations Thursday in the obstruction trial of Julie Hiatt Steele after the defense surprised the courtroom by resting its case without calling a single witness. Attorneys for Steele, who is accused of covering up President Clinton's alleged groping of her former friend Kathleen Willey at the White House in 1993, decided not to put on a defense because they believe Willey's credibility was badly damaged during Wednesday's cross-examination, sources close to Steele said.

Three days after a former White House aide riveted the nation with her televised account of an unwelcome sexual encounter with the president, information that could challenge her version of events continued to come to light Wednesday. Information also emerged indicating that President Clinton took an active role in the decision to release correspondence that might discredit Kathleen E. Willey's allegation that he had kissed and groped her near the Oval Office in November 1993.

During nearly 2 1/2 hours of bruising cross-examination, Willey acknowledged repeated lapses of memory and contradictions in her accounts of how she was allegedly groped by President Clinton.

A witness Wednesday corroborated Susan McDougal's story that she was pressured to cooperate in independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's investigation of President Clinton and his wife. Testifying in McDougal's criminal contempt trial, Claudia Riley said that ex-husband James B. McDougal, now deceased, "grabbed Susan by the arm" and told her that, if she didn't provide assistance to Starr's office, "I'll never speak to you again."

It is a trial scene worthy of Quentin Tarantino. In a courtroom in northern Virginia, many of the central characters of the Lewinsky scandal have assembled for a lethal confrontation in which every witness appears to have a gun at the head of every other witness. This circular firing squad is the result of Julie Hiatt Steele's trial for obstruction of justice and making false statements.

Independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr's tactics came under fire again Friday in the Susan McDougal contempt trial, as a woman indicted in the Monica S. Lewinsky investigation testified that she was pressured to concoct a story damaging to President Clinton. But prosecutors hit back at witness Julie Hiatt Steele during a grueling cross-examination, suggesting that the Virginia woman "flip-flopped" her story and cashed in on her notoriety to sell a photo to a tabloid.

Re "Experts Question Witness' Indictment," Jan. 9: How far can an independent counsel go? Kenneth Starr's indictment of Julie Steele, a witness to a peripheral issue, not a suspect, is further evidence of the lengths to which out-of-control prosecutors (on our tax money) will go to prove, not the truth, but rather their own suspicions and biases. Steele is getting the full treatment--subpoenaed bank records and credit history, grand jury interrogation of brother and daughter, investigation into her daughter's adoption.
