Arlyn Ackley Sr., chairman of the Mole Lake-Sokaogon Band of Lake Superior Chippewa Indians, testified that Skibine told him that the review got too political for him to be involved.
Skibine was scheduled to testify Thursday.
Until the rejection, Ackley said, The indication was it was moving along and would be accepted.
The Justice Department is considering whether an independent counsel should investigate Babbitt for his handling of the case, especially conflicting statements to Congress over whether politics played a role. Babbitt denied in Senate hearings last year that the decision was political and said he personally was out of the loop.
Did Mr. Skibine make direct reference to political pressure? asked Richard Bennett, chief counsel for the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee.
Oh yes, Ackley replied.
Committee Chairman Dan Burton, R-Ind., asserted that Interior Department documents would show that politics, not policy, determined the outcome. He noted that two key Interior aides involved in the decision later went to work for the tribes opposing the casino, and that Democratic contributions followed the job switch.
Agency documents will show that Babbitt's people had made up their mind that this application was going to be rejected, Burton said. They just had to come up with the right justification, Burton said.
Ackley and the chairmen of the two other tribes --Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewas and the La Courte Oreilles Band of Chippewas --testified that their tribal members were living in poverty, with high unemployment and desperately in need of the money from the off-reservation Hudson facility.

Arlyn Ackley, 48, was bound over for trial Monday in U.S. District Court on accusations he used about $40,000 in tribal funds.
After being elected chairman in a 1993 write-in campaign, he was ousted in 1998.
Arlyn Ackley, 48, also was convicted by a jury in U.S. District Court of two counts of keeping money belonging to the Sokaogon Gaming Enterprise Corp. The total amount involved in those counts was about $3,300, according to the indictment in the case.
"We're happy for the people of the Sokaogon Chippewa," said Assistant U.S. Attorney Mario Gonzales, who prosecuted the case.
Ackley was tribal chairman from 1993 until he was ousted from office in 1998.
While chairman, he was entrusted with a credit card from the gaming corporation, the indictment said. The corporation was the tribal subsidiary that ran the two Mole Lake Casinos in Crandon.
The indictment said Ackley would get the corporation to give him advances for travel expenses, then use a tribal credit card to charge the same expenses to the corporation.
Ackley never refunded about $8,700 in hotel costs for which he received advances and which he charged to his tribal card.
Many of Ackley's trips were taken with Richard DuWayne Derickson, who was tribal planner.
Derickson was sentenced in April 1999 to three years in prison for using his position to steal more than $370,000 from the Sokaogon Gaming Enterprise Corp.
Ackley also used the corporation's credit card for his personal use and cash advances for personal gambling expenses, the indictment said.
From about May 1994 to April 1997, Ackley made about 68 cash withdrawals totaling about $30,000 using the credit card, according to the indictment.
Most of the cash advances were taken at the Menominee Indian Casino, about 40 miles from the Mole Lake Chippewa community.
U.S. District Judge Charles N. Clevert scheduled sentencing Jan. 4.
