Quotes from the news wire:
The The House managers have said shame and embarrassment is no excuse for lying. Well, the question about lying, that's your decision. But I can tell you, you put yourself in President Clinton position, and you've already had this big moral lapse, as to what you would do. We are -- none of us are perfect. Sure, you say, President Clinton should have thought of all that beforehand. And indeed President Clinton should. Just as Adam and Eve should have. Just as you and you and you and you, and millions of other people who have been caught in similar circumstances should have thought of it before. And I say none of us are perfect.
Nobody has suggested that President Clinton committed a political crime against the state. So, colleagues, if you honor the Constitution, you must look at the history of the Constitution and how we got to the impeachment clause. And if you do that and you do that honestly according to the oath you took, you can not. You can censure President Clinton. You can hand President Clinton over to the prosecutor for President Clinton to be prosecuted, But you can not convict President Clinton. And you can not indulge yourselves the luxury or the right to ignore this history.
