Clinton aide accused

WEBSTER Hubbell, a former Clinton appointee and friend, has been charged with conspiracy, fraud and tax evasion as a result of the Whitewater investigation. He had already served 18 months' for fraud and embezzlement relating to his time as a partner in the law firm for which Hillary Clinton also worked. The new charges relate to alleged evasion of tax payments on legal and consultancy fees paid to Mr Hubbell after he left his job as associate attorney-general in 1994.
