The story of "My Life," as told by Bill Clinton, is of a chubby, ambitious boy from rural Arkansas who, against all odds, arrives triumphantly at the height of power in Washington only to run up against a partisan, right-wing movement determined to drive him from the White House. And 957 pages after it begins, the battle-scarred president has survived, still a bit awed that his "improbable life" has turned out so well.

Congressional investigators examining the Clinton pardon scandal said Wednesday that they have unearthed new evidence suggesting that former President Clinton's half-brother, Roger, may have been paid $50,000 for attempting to secure a clemency on behalf of a convicted New Jersey heroin trafficker.

With President Clinton's encouragement, his half brother, Roger, collected hundreds of thousands of dollars to lobby on behalf of as many as 13 people seeking presidential pardons and other favors, a key congressional panel has found. This characterization goes far beyond what Roger Clinton has acknowledged about his activities in seeking presidential pardons and suggests that he was much more deeply involved than previously known.

It was about 8:45 Thursday morning when I walked into the Hermosa Beach Police Department with two dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts and a 12-pack of Coors Light. In college, that was a typical breakfast. But in this case, I was conducting a scientific experiment to determine how many beers a man has to drink before he's legally hammered.

Two weeks after he testified before the grand jury investigating former President Clinton's flood of eleventh-hour pardons, federal inmate Garland Lincecum waits here at the county jail, soon to return to a U.S. penitentiary in Texas. Sixty-seven years old, his hair has gone white and his teeth are rotting. He has served just two years of a seven-year sentence for fraud. In his mind, he should not have done one single day. Lincecum paid for a presidential pardon, he said.
