THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT OF JANE C. SHERBURNE SPECIAL COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT November 27, 1996
The White House has no expectation that Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr will take any action against present or former White House officials. I do not believe he has any basis whatsoever for any such action. I made no such statements to USA Today. The statements attributed to me in USA Today were taken out of context. As a result USA Today has published a grossly misleading story. My statements were in response to the reporter's stated expectation that the Independent Counsel would seek indictments by the end of the year. I observed that the Independent Counsel was unlikely to reach any conclusions before February. I did not say that I expected his conclusions to include indictments. Again, I do not have any such expectation.
