THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Press Secretary
STATEMENT BY CHARLES RUFF COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT
We are pleased that we have been able to arrive at an agreement with Chairman Burton that will enable the White House to continue its cooperation with the Committee, while preserving, as to a few documents, the privacy and privilege interests that we have been seeking to protect. We appreciate the Chairman's willingness, and that of his staff, to devote the time and effort to resolve this matter and believe that our agreement ensures that the needs of both the Committee and the White House will be met.
