LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 10 (UPI) -- The Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., released nearly 10,000 pages of material Friday, shedding new light on Clinton's numerous in-office scandals, including documents about Monica Lewinsky, Whitewater, Vince Foster, Lani Guinier and the pardon of Marc Rich.
According to the library's website, the documents were previously restricted under sections of the Presidential Records Act because they deal either with appointment to a federal office or concern private communication and confidential advice exchanged among the president and his advisors.
The PRA "includes provisions that these types of documents be withheld for twelve years after the end of a president's administration. These documents are now being made available to the public."
Apart from new insight into the high-profile scandals that plagued Clinton's presidency, there's also a wealth of information on the administration's internal response to the most significant events of the era including the Oklahoma City Bombing.
The documents also evidence the administration's internal communication on the most controversial policy debates of the 90s, including gays in the military, affirmative action, and foreign policy with Haiti and Guatemala.
And for anyone interested in mapping the trajectory of her political career, the release includes pages on former first lady and likely 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, offering material about her her communications with Congress as head of the administration's health care task force and her successful Senate campaign in 2000.
The documents, as with each previous release, were made public just before the weekend, when readers may be less likely to latch on to scandalous revelations or unflattering information.
This is the seventh batch of records released (on a Friday) since February.
