(Mary Jo White cant overturn a Presidential pardon - but as a federal

prosecutor she can launch a criminal investigation.
Whites office - the same one that indicted Marc Rich back in 1983 for tax evasion, fraud, and illegal dealings with Iran - will now investigate if MONEY bought Rich his last minute deal.
White may want to speak to Howard Safir, a former US marshall, who spent years of his career trying to track down Marc Rich. He claims Richs ex-wife Denise and Bill Clinton met several times.

(SOT Howard Safir - Former U.S. Marshall

I do know the last two time the President was in town he spent a bit of time with Miss Rich.
graphic
While no one knows what was discussed, prosecutors do know Denise Rich gave away lots of money; $450,000 dollars to the Clinton Presidential Library Fund, $1.1 million to the Democratic Party, and at least $109,000 dollars to Hillary Rodham Clintons Senate campaign.
Safir speculates how Marc Rich could have funneled money to help his own cause.

(SOT) Howard Safir - Former U.S. Marshall

It would be easy for him to move money to one of the off-shore back havens to set up a dummy company, for that company to transfer the money to another dummy company in the US and then get it transferred to Rich, Denise Rich, or the Democratic Party.

(NAT - :02 Washington hearings)


While Senate and House committees also look into the case, Clinton continues to deny any wrongdoing.

(STAND-UP CLOSE) Gretchen Carlson Reporting

But even Democratic Senators are now speaking out against the pardon. And with Denise Rich refusing to answer any questions on Capitol Hill -- the suspicion continues to grow. Gretchen Carlson, CBS News, New York. ))

She's pleased the USDA has given the plan a thumbs up. It offers a balanced mix of carbohydrates, protein and fat plus an essential ingredient - behavior modification.

SOT: Lauren Cohen/Weight Watchers

The Weight Watchers plan works by making people aware of all their behaviors and eating habits that got them into trouble and as they come to the meetings each week they learn about different ways to approach their eating habits and also how to eat..and different food ideas they get from other members.
Bonnie Kaye stand-up: with comparison products on dining room table: The Weight Watcher s program is based on a points system, the object being not to go over a certain amount of points per day, say twenty-five. Every food you eat is assigned a point value, for instance, this orange and this little piece of Hershey s chocolate candy are worth one point each-one is obviously more nutritious than the other.

sot: Gloria Gridas/Weight Watcher

It has the flexibility that you can go out to dinner..that you can have wine with dinner as long as you stay with within point range.
Narr: Among the success stories is Gloria Gridas ...she's lost 11 pounds in two months on the program that she finds easy to stick to.
Sot: Gloria Gridas: There's nothing you can't eat on Weight Watchers. You can have ice cream, you can have pizza - you can have anything.
