Clinton Offered Help on Scientology - 1998-02-12
WASHINGTON (AP) _ Actor John Travolta, who stars in an upcoming movie about a candidate bearing a strong resemblance to President Clinton, says the president took an interest last year in a favorite cause of his: the treatment by Germany of members of the Church of Scientology.
Travolta, a Scientologist, is quoted in the March issue of the magazine George from an interview while promoting the movie "Primary Colors." He says Clinton told him, "I'd really love to help you with your issue in Germany with Scientology."
Travolta said the White House later arranged for him to discuss the issue with National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, whom the magazine described as the administration's "Scientology point person." The article does not contend Clinton took any more specific action than that.
