In 1992 and 1996, William Jefferson Clinton was sworn, under, oath to uphold the laws of the United States.
electorate knew of accusations concerning his involvement in Whitewater, his womanizing and lying. The only difference between
then and now is that we have proof of his womanizing and lying.
Kenneth Starr is an alleged independent prosecutor.
He was given a fishing license and an unlimited budget to investigate the president. After four years and millinos of dollars,
he could find only two charges against the president. Perjury over an affair and alleged obstruction of justice.
House of Representatives had a clear choice, censure him or issue articles of impeachment. On Dec. 19, the House voted to
issue articles of impeachment.
The Senate must now determine if perjury and obstruction of justice meets the intent
of the Constitution uner "high crimes and misdemeanors." The Senate must follow proper judicial procedure and record
the proceedings for future generations, regardless of the outcome.
Our country and the president must accept the
decision of the Senate without recourse. There is no appeal to impeachment.
We are poised to enter the millennium
with the Senate's decision on what constitutes an impeachable offense.
