[b]YOU MAY GET $3.5M TAB FOR BILL-HILL SCANDAL FEES[/b] [img]http://nypost.com/photos/web09180212a.jpg[/img] By BRIAN BLOMQUIST September 18, 2002 -- EXCLUSIVE WASHINGTON - Bill and Hillary Clinton - seeking a taxpayer bailout of more than $3.5 million - and a host of other scandal players are asking for a total of $7.8 million to cover legal bills stemming from the independent counsel's probe, The Post has learned. Ex-White House intern Monica Lewinsky wants $1.2 million, and Clinton pal Vernon Jordan, who helped Lewinsky find a New York City job, has put in for a $303,000 reimbursement. The figures were revealed in papers unsealed by a special U.S. appeals court after a request by The Post. The motions show for the first time the fees sought by 27 players in Clinton scandals, including minor ones like the cop who found Vince Foster's body and the White House usher who reportedly cleaned up after Clinton's trysts. The billing records also provide details about the surprising degree of cooperation between Clinton, Lewinsky and Jordan - even after Lewinsky struck a deal to cooperate with Independent Counsel Ken Starr. Phone records submitted by Jordan's lawyer, Bill Hundley, show that lawyers for the three defendants talked almost every day in late July 1998, at least six days in August and a few more times in September. That was the hottest period in the special prosecutor's investigation. Lewinsky struck a deal with Starr on July 28, in which she agreed to testify against Clinton in exchange for criminal immunity for her and her mother. And Clinton testified to the grand jury on Aug. 17. "This is further proof that right up until the end, Miss Lewinsky was doing everything possible to protect the president and Vernon Jordan," said former Starr investigator Solomon Wisenberg, who added that Lewinsky's frequent contact with Clinton and Jordan - through their lawyers - didn't violate her immunity deal. Under the law, any "subject" or "target" of an independent counsel investigation can apply for their legal fees to be reimbursed, so long as that person wasn't convicted and can show that the money is deserved. The current independent counsel, Julie Thomas, is now preparing a response to all the petitions for money - which add up to a grand total of $7.8 million. A federal three-judge panel will make the final decision about who gets how much. The money awarded will come out of the Justice Department's budget. One factor that's not considered by the court is the ability of applicants to pay their legal bills. The Clintons, Jordan and Lewinsky are wealthy by almost any standard. The Clintons still have more than $2 million in outstanding legal bills, and their petition to the court doesn't cover legal costs related to the Paula Jones sex-harassment lawsuit or the Lewinsky investigation. Clinton agreed not to seek reimbursement from the Lewinsky probe when he cut a deal with Starr's successor, Robert Ray, before leaving office. [url]http://nypost.com/news/nationalnews/57326.htm[/url]

I've already sold all my guns so that I could give a big contribution to their legal defense fund.
