Billy has had no influence or effect on my decisions or on any United States government policy or actions concerning Libya.
Neither I nor anyone in the White House knew any details about the conduct of the investigation under the Foreign Agents Registration Act or tried to influence or affect the [Justice] department's actions or decisions.
