Denise Rich (L) presents former U.S. President Bill Clinton with a saxaphone at the G&P Foundation gala in New York City, in this file photo from November 30, 2000. Clinton has come under intense scrutiny since he left office following a January 20 pardon he granted Denise Rich's ex-husband financial trader Marc Rich just hours before leaving the White House. The pardon has resulted in questions in Congress and elsewhere over whether the pardon was related to contributions and pledges by Ms. Rich to the Democratic party and the Clinton Library project.
