Involvement in the Vince Foster affair: With Patsy Thomason and Margaret Williams, Nussbaum conducted a search of the deceased Vince Foster's office, finding Foster's briefcase empty as he overturned it to examine any contents. Later a suicide note was found in the same case. Nussbaum also denied investigators access to certain documents in Foster's office. He later told the Senate Whitewater committee that he had a duty to perform these activities, citing Executive Privilege, and, "if I had it to do over again, facing the same circumstances, I would do it essentially the same way."
