Synopsis by Hal Erickson
During the investigation of the MS "coverup," Donna (Janel Moloney) is questioned by Republican counsel Clifford Calley (Mark Feuerstein), whom she has been dating -- and to whom she tells deliberate lies. In the wake of a fatal church shooting in Texas, President Bartlet (Martin Sheen) squares off against Vice President Hoynes (Tim Matheson) on the issue of gun control. Leo (John Spencer), likewise, has a confrontation with an old friend, Air Force General Adamley (Gerald McRaney), over details of an international war-crimes tribunal. Foreign correspondent Will Sawyer (Michael O'Keefe) gets wind of an embarrassing statement made by Toby Ziegler (Richard Schiff). And Sam (Rob Lowe) is whimsically sidetracked by an effort to abolish the penny.
