1996- House Oversight Committee Travelgate Report

The House Government Reform and Oversight Committee issued its majority report on Travelgate on September 18, 1996, in which it accused the Clinton administration of having obstructed the committee’s efforts to investigate the Travelgate scandal. It portrayed Bill Clinton as being heavily involved in the travel office affair. The report’s chapter titles were lurid: “The White House Stonewalled All Investigations into the White House Travel Office Firings and Related Matters”, “The White House Initiated a Full-Scale Campaign of Misinformation in the Aftermath of the Travel Office Firings and President Clinton Led the Misinformation Campaign from the First Days of the Travelgate Debacle”, “Foster’s Death Shattered a White House Just Recovering from an Abysmal First 6 Months of Administration”.
