Clinton Asks Janet Reno to Continue as Attorney General

Squelching weeks of speculation, President Clinton Wednesday asked Janet Reno, the first woman to serve as this nation’s top law enforcement official, to remain as Attorney General during his second term. Appearing together Thursday, December 12th at a meeting on anti-drug efforts, neither Clinton nor Reno would discuss her future with the administration. Reno had stated last month that she would like to remain the Attorney General.
