Indonesian Financier

Host Bob Edwards talks to NPR's Peter Overby about the Justice Department announcement last night that Indonesian financier James Riady will plead guilty to making illegal contributions to the Democratic Party and pay an eight-point-six million dollar fine. Riady will admit to a felony charge that he used corporate funds from his foreign company to reimburse contributors to the 1992 Clinton presidential campaign. Foreign campaign contributions are illegal under US law.
