This is the first volume of the "Investigation of Illegal or Improper Activities in Connection with 1996 Federal Election Campaigns." From the Introduction: "In the wake of numerous revelations in the news media of unusual, and possibly illegal, campaign contributions to the Democratic Party during the 1996 presidential campaign, the Senate Majority Leader announced during the first week of December 1996, that the Committee on Governmental Affairs would conduct an investigation on behalf of the Senate into fundraising practices of the Democratic National Committee ('DNC') following the convocation of the 105th Congress in January 1997. The Majority Leader determined to centralize all aspects of the inquiry in the Governmental Affairs Committee (hereafter referred to simply as 'the Committee'), which has the broadest oversight jurisdiction and most extensive subpoena authority of any committee of the Senate. The investigation and its public hearings had three fundamental and interrelated purposes, consistent with the constitutional responsibilities of the Senate: informing the public, examining the operation of the law and of government officials, and developing a record to assist the Senate in considering legislation."
