Program Description

As congressional investigations begin in Washington,"Frontline" explores the dark cloud of suspicion surrounding political contributions -- primarily Asian contributions -- that have hung over the Clinton administration since the beginning of its second term.

Correspondent Peter Boyer travels the corridors of power in Washington to Hawaii, uncovering the roots of big Asian money in American politics. Along the way, Boyer examines the complicated web of relationships that includes the president, his advisors, members of the cabinet and a wide variety of businessmen who would like to buy their way into the White House.
