Clinton White House documents set for release

    The National Archives is releasing about 7,500 pages of documents Friday from former President Bill Clinton’s administration.

    The records will cover a wide range of topics, including former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton’s role in health care reform, the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and foreign policy involving Rwanda, Iran and the Middle East.

    Other topics will include papers from presidential speechwriters, meetings and phone calls between the president and his pollster, Stan Greenberg, and records related to former President Richard Nixon, director Steven Spielberg and talk show host Oprah Winfrey.

    Documents released since February have covered the Clinton administration’s unsuccessful health care overhaul plan and Republicans’ victories in the 1994 midterm elections.
