Keating Aide Heard in Closed Meeting
The Senate Ethics Committee on Wednesday held a closed session to question James Grogan, an aide to Charles H. Keating Jr. with extensive knowledge of Keating’s ties to five senators.
Grogan was compelled to answer questions under a grant of limited immunity and was ordered to return today.
The panel was hoping to obtain information from a side it has not heard from--Keating’s inner circle--in hearings on five senators who took his campaign contributions and intervened with federal regulators on behalf of his now-failed Lincoln Savings & Loan.
Grogan was vice president of Lincoln and corporate counsel of the thrift’s parent company, American Continental Corp.
