Clinton library to release documents
The Clinton Presidential Library plans to make available today about 5,000 pages of documents involving former President Bill Clinton's administration, the National Archives said Thursday. The documents, part of a larger set of records being prepared for release, are expected to include confidential communications between the former president and his advisers along with records related to Clinton's federal appointments. They could also include communications involving former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, who is considering a 2016 presidential campaign.
Failed assassin gets extended leave
Starting in March, President Ronald Reagan's would-be assassin could spend as long as 17 days each month living with his mother in Williamsburg, Va., and away from a District of Columbia psychiatric hospital, a federal judge has decided. The order by U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman establishes guidelines for John Hinckley Jr.'s visits, which had been limited to 10 days a month. Hinckley has been in St. Elizabeth's Hospital since the attempt on Reagan's life in 1981.
