Presentation shapes
witness issue, opinions

IMPEACH
Continued from Page 1A
Craig accused the House articles of being a
"witches brew of allegations.
"Truly, these are frivolous allegations," Craig
said. "The President didn't say what they claim
he said, but even if he did, the allegations are of
absolutely no import and are totally immaterial
to anything of consequence;' citing the ambigu-
ity and vagueness of the articles.
Mills, who is a new addition to the presi-
dent's defense team, spoke at length about the
civil rights violations and obstruction of justice
charges that Article Two levies against Clinton.
"The truth, the facts, are stubborn," Mills
said. "Like the tell-tale heart, they keep pound-
ing.
"Those.stubborn facts, they prove this was
not obstruction of justice," Mills said.
During a break in the trial, Rep. James Rogan
(R-Calif.), one of the House managers prosecut-
ing the case, said Craig's argument doesn't
make good sense.
"I don't know how they can get up with a
straight face and make that presentation," Rogan
said.
He was referring to a discussion by the White
House counsel regarding the importance of
impeachment, during which Craig said "but the
Framers, in their genius, did not design the awe-
some power of impeachment and removal for
the purpose of vindicating the rule of law."
But Rogan insisted these are special circum-
stances, and that the president - who could
serve a maximum of 50 years in federal prison

if all the allegations are proved true - must be
removed.
"The same Constitution that gives us an elec-
tion gives us an impeachment process" Rogan
said.
After the trial had adjourned for the day, some
senators said the presentation made the issue of
calling witnesses clearer in their mind - but
their conclusions varied greatly.
Sen. John Breaux (D-La.) called the presenta-
tion a technical and legal knockout.
"The more they answer the questions of the
House presenters, the less the need for further
information," Breaux said.
Rep. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he thinks
the opposite is true.
"Every day they talk, the case for witnesses
grows;' Graham said.
But, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Ia.) continued with
the boxing theme and said yesterday was an
awesome one-two punch.
"It was almost like watching someone go
through a shredding machine," Harkin said.
But on the other side, another House man-
ager Rep. Asa Hutchinson (R-Ark.) said,
"Cynthia Mills made the strongest case yet
for calling witnesses" through her presenta-
tion of the facts.
And Graham said, "we stand firmer on wit-
nesses than ever before."
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said the possibili-
ty of Clinton testifying is up to the president.
"The only way he is going to come is if he
wants to come," Hatch said, adding that yester-
day's presentation clearly drew the line between
to the two sides.

Press

Continued from Page 1A
He quoted from a highlighted copy of
the federal obstruction of justice statute as
reporters crowded around him
"The application of the law by the
defense is at best smoke and mirrors,"
Graham said. "I was personally offended."
But the House managers counterparts.
the Democrats that served on the House
Judiciary Committee that drafted the arti-
cles, are continuing to make their case as
well, even though they have no official role.
Saying that Republicans will keep
Congress from getting to business on ini-
tiatives Clinton proposed in his State of
the Union address last night, Rep. Barney
Frank (D-Mass.) said, "Its the same right
wing that is keeping this farce going."
Rep. Tom Barrett (D-Wis.) said he is
concerned because the House already has
had to postpone its schedule because of
the trial. He also said he hopes Clinton
will remain focused on the issues, as he
did by delivering the State of the Union
address.
"He did what gets under their skin: he
talked about issues that matter," Barrett
said.
But in the end, it was the Republicans
who continued to disperse information
contradicting the White House presenta-
tion.
"It's important for the press to get the
whole story," Rogan said, referring to the
media releases.

Sen. Robert Bennett (R-Utah) meets reporters on Capitol Hill yesterday after the Senate's
impeachment trial against President Clinton adjourned for the day.

The White House will conclude its presenta-
tion today, and the senators will then have 16
hours to ask questions on the two teams. What
will happen after that is a point of contention
among many members.
While a motion to dismiss is already in the
pipeline, its expected defeat will leave room for
a vote on whether to depose witnesses. Sen.
John Kerry (D-Mass.) said he hopes to expedite
the process after that point, possibly with a

motion to call the articles to a vote immediately
after the witness vote.
"What I'd like to reach is an agreement to
vote up or down on the articles, but I don't see
that happening," Kerry said. "I just want to see
us move in an expedited fashion toward the
end."
Votes on this possibility, and any other possi-
bilities senators want to present, will come early
next week.
