Clinton aide investigated

The week's news at a glance.

Washington, D.C.

Sandy Berger, the Clinton administration’s national security advisor, is under criminal investigation for removing classified documents on terrorism from the National Archives. Berger spent three days reviewing government documents last summer, while preparing to testify before the 9/11 commission. The FBI searched Berger’s home and office after archive employees reported seeing Berger put papers into his pockets. Law enforcement sources told CNN that Berger stuffed some of the material into his socks. Berger said this week that he “inadvertently took a few documents,” including his own handwritten notes, and he apologized for his “sloppiness.” Former White House spokesman Joe Lockhart said Berger “categorically denies he ever took documents and stuffed them into his socks.”
