Clinton Team Has Millions

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Clinton, who made a campaign issue of Republican favoritism

of the wealthy, has more millionaires among his top advisers than either Ronald Reagan

or George Bush.

Clinton has at least nine millionaires at the top of his administration, including

several well-to-do lawyers and two Wall Street executives whose fortunes dwarf Clinton's

reported U.S. $863,000 in assets.

Among the top cabinet millionaires are Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen, worth at

least U.S. $5.9 million, and Secretary of State Warren Christopher, who is worth

at least U.S. $4.2 million.

But even their fortunes are easily topped by the two top economic advisers Clinton

borrowed from Wall Street, Robert Rubin and Roger Altman. Each is worth tens of millions

of dollars.

In addition, four other cabinet members and a U.N. ambassador with cabinet level

status are millionaires, and five other top aides may well have the distinction,

an Associated Press review of their financial disclosure reports reveals.
