Previously Steiner was Chief of Staff of the U.S. Treasury Department in the Clinton Administration, where he was responsible for managing the Secretary of Treasury's staff and served as his advisor on domestic and international policy as well as management and communications issues.[7] Steiner came into national news as a result of the Whitewater investigations where he testified before Congress on the contacts between the Treasury and the Clinton White House [1]. He testified before the Senate Banking Committee on August 2, 1994. His diary, which alluded to Roger Altman and Bill Clinton and their knowledge of the Resolution Trust Corporation's investigation into Whitewater, was subpoenaed as a key document in the investigation. Steiner's diary occasionally seemed at odds with how the Clinton Administration explained its handling of the Whitewater controversy. During the congressional committee investigation, Steiner testified that the entries were not "intended to be a precise narrative" of events [2]
