                           February 12, 1999

    Mr. LOTT. I ask unanimous consent that the Secretary be 
authorized to include these statements [of Senators explaining 
their votes], along with the full record of the Senate's 
proceedings, the filings by the parties, and the supplemental 
materials admitted into evidence by the Senate, in a Senate 
document printed under the supervision of the Secretary of the 
Senate, that will complete the documentation of the Senate's 
handling of these impeachment proceedings.
    The CHIEF JUSTICE. Without objection, it is so ordered.
                 To the memory of Raymond Scott Bates,

                    Legislative Clerk of the Senate,

who, until his untimely and tragic accidental death on February 
5, 1999, in the midst of these proceedings, brought to the 
conduct of this trial the constant dedication, skill, and 
professionalism that characterized his Senate career. Scott 
represented the best of the Senate staff who work tirelessly to 
support the institution and its members.


                                FOREWORD

                              ----------                              

    This document contains the full record of the United States 
Senate proceedings in the impeachment trial of President 
William Jefferson Clinton. Its purpose is to preserve for the 
future use of the Senate, the American people, and historians 
the formal record of the only Presidential impeachment trial of 
the 20th century. Together with the 24-volume Senate Document 
106-3, which contains all publicly available materials 
submitted to or produced by the Judiciary Committee of the 
House of Representatives, these four volumes represent the 
entire official record of the impeachment actions against 
President Clinton.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ The Senate, by a unanimous-consent agreement of February 12, 
1999, authorized the Secretary of the Senate to oversee the printing of 
the Senate proceedings in order to complete the documentation of the 
impeachment trial.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The present four volumes include the Senate proceedings in 
open session; filings by the parties; supplemental materials 
received in evidence that were not part of the House record, 
such as affidavits and depositions; floor statements of 
Senators in open session expressing their views regarding the 
proceedings; and statements delivered in closed deliberations 
that individual Senators elected to make public.
    The document is divided into four sections--
          Volume I: Preliminary Proceedings
          Volume II: Floor Trial Proceedings
          Volume III: Depositions and Affidavits
          Volume IV: Statements of Senators Regarding the 
        Impeachment Trial of President William Jefferson 
        Clinton

                   Volume I: Preliminary Proceedings

    This volume contains the portion of the Senate proceedings 
that occurred before the actual trial commenced. On December 
19, 1998, the House of Representatives adopted two articles of 
impeachment against President Clinton (House Resolution 611, 
105th Congress) and a subsequent resolution appointing managers 
on the part of the House (House Resolution 614, 105th 
Congress).
    Because the Senate of the 105th Congress had already 
completed its business and adjourned sine die, the House 
managers, in the late afternoon of December 19, 1998, delivered 
the articles of impeachment to the Secretary of the Senate. The 
Senate of the 106th Congress convened and organized on January 
6, 1999, and the House notified the Senate that it had 
reappointed the managers (House Resolution 10, 106th Congress). 
On January 7, 1999, the House managers exhibited the articles 
of impeachment to the Senate and the Chief Justice of the 
United States, as presiding officer during the impeachment 
trial, took the prescribed oath, as did all Senators.
    On January 8, 1999, the Senate unanimously directed that 
the summons be issued to President Clinton and that his answer 
to the articles be filed, together with the response of the 
House of Representatives (Senate Resolution 16, 106th 
Congress). This resolution admitted into evidence the materials 
submitted by the House Judiciary Committee and authorized their 
publication. It also allowed the parties to file preliminary 
motions (none was filed), established a schedule for the filing 
of trial briefs by the parties, and established further 
procedures for the conduct of the trial. Although all these 
documents were previously printed in Senate Document 106-2--as 
well as the text of the provisions of the United States 
Constitution applicable to impeachment and the Rules of 
Procedure and Practice of the Senate When Sitting in 
Impeachment Trials--they are reprinted here for ease of 
reference.

                   Volume II: Floor Trial Proceedings

    This volume reproduces the full record of the Senate floor 
proceedings in the impeachment trial as provided under Senate 
Resolution 16. The resolution first permitted the parties an 
extended period to make their presentations. The managers 
presented their case on behalf of the House of Representatives 
on January 14, 15, and 16, 1999. Counsel for the President 
presented their case on January 19 and 20, 1999. The Senate 
then devoted January 22 and 23, 1999, to posing questions to 
the House managers and counsel.
    Senate Resolution 16 also provided that, at the end of the 
question-and-answer period, the Senate would consider 
separately a motion to dismiss and a motion to subpoena 
witnesses and to present additional evidence not in the record. 
On January 25, 1999, the Senate heard argument on the motion to 
dismiss and, on January 26, 1999, considered the motion by the 
House managers to call witnesses and admit additional evidence. 
The Senate voted to deny the motion to dismiss and to grant the 
motion to subpoena witnesses.
    On January 28, 1999, the Senate established procedures for 
the taking of depositions (Senate Resolution 30), and three 
witnesses were deposed on February 1, 2, and 3, 1999. On 
February 4, 1999, the Senate heard argument and voted on 
motions to admit the deposition testimony into evidence, to 
call witnesses to testify on the Senate floor, and to proceed 
directly to closing arguments. The portions of the deposition 
transcripts admitted into evidence are reproduced in this 
volume, while the full transcripts of the three depositions 
appear in Volume III. Both parties presented evidence to the 
Senate on February 6, 1999.
    On February 8, 1999, the parties presented final arguments 
to the Senate. The Senate then considered proposals by various 
Senators to suspend the Senate impeachment rules to permit 
deliberation in open session, but all deliberations on motions 
and on the articles of impeachment occurred in closed session. 
(The proceedings in closed session are not published here, but 
statements that Senators elected to make public are printed in 
Volume IV.) Volume II concludes with the record of the February 
12, 1999, vote and judgment of the Senate to acquit President 
Clinton on both articles of impeachment.

                 Volume III: Depositions and Affidavits

    This volume reproduces the complete transcripts of the 
depositions taken by the Senate of witnesses Monica S. 
Lewinsky, Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., and Sidney Blumenthal. It also 
contains the affidavits of Christopher Hitchens, Carol Blue, 
and R. Scott Armstrong, which were admitted into evidence by a 
unanimous-consent agreement of February 12, 1999.

 Volume IV: Statements of Senators Regarding the Impeachment Trial of 
                  President William Jefferson Clinton

    By unanimous consent, the Senate agreed to provide each 
Senator an opportunity to place in the Congressional Record a 
statement describing his or her own views on the impeachment. 
The statement could, if a Senator so chose, be a statement he 
or she had delivered during closed deliberations. Since not all 
Senators chose to publish their remarks, the fact that a 
statement of a particular Senator does not appear in Volume IV 
does not mean that the Senator did not address the Senate 
during its closed deliberations.


    The publication of these four volumes, supplemented with 
Senate Document 106-3, contributes to a fuller understanding of 
the way in which the Senate conducted these important and 
historic proceedings.

           THE PUBLIC'S ACCESS TO THE IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS

            [From the Congressional Record, January 6, 1999]

    Mr. LOTT. Mr. President, during the impeachment trial of 
President Andrew Johnson, the Senate limited access to the 
Senate wing of the Capitol, the Senate floor, and the Senate 
galleries to those with official business and those with 
tickets to the proceedings.
    Over the Christmas holidays, staff of the Office of the 
Secretary of the Senate, including the Parliamentarian, 
legislative clerk and others, and staff of the Office of the 
Sergeant at Arms and others, have reviewed the historical 
precedents but also considered what we could do to facilitate 
the public's access to the proceedings while taking into 
account contemporary security requirements and the flow of 
business here in the Chamber. Staff have recommended some 
restrictions to the access of the Senate wing, floor, and 
galleries coupled with a ticketing system that will make as 
many seats in the gallery available to the public and others as 
is possible for us to do.
    Accordingly, in a few minutes I will ask unanimous consent 
be given to a set of policies that reflect the staff 
recommendations which will confine access to the Senate floor 
and galleries and to the second and third floors of the Senate 
wing of the Capitol during the consideration of the articles of 
impeachment and at all times the Chief Justice is presiding.
    I thank the distinguished Democratic leader for his efforts 
and his cooperation in this matter. We have been very careful 
to make sure we reviewed all the precedents, all the rules; 
that he has had a chance to check off on these rules, as I 
have. And I wish to thank all staff who researched the 
precedent and evaluated current conditions to develop these 
recommendations. Before seeking unanimous consent, however, I 
will now yield to the assistant Democratic leader.
    The PRESIDING OFFICER (Mr. Hagel). The assistant Democratic 
leader is recognized.
    Mr. REID. Mr. President, I appreciate the statement of the 
majority leader. He has been very gracious in reaching out to 
this side of the aisle on the standards that are going to be 
initiated and actually used during the impeachment proceedings. 
I think that the Secretary of the Senate and the Sergeant at 
Arms did an excellent job today of explaining the procedures to 
the Democratic caucus. I think there was general agreement that 
they were favorable and would certainly make the process here 
one of which we could all be proud.
                                ------                                


               UNANIMOUS-CONSENT AGREEMENT--SENATE ACCESS

    Mr. LOTT. Mr. President, I ask unanimous consent that 
access to the Senate wing, the Senate floor, and the Senate

of Pennsylvania, Mr. Canady of Florida, Mr. Buyer of Indiana, 
Mr. Bryant of Tennessee, Mr. Chabot of Ohio, Mr. Barr of 
Georgia, Mr. Hutchinson of Arkansas, Mr. Cannon of Utah, Mr. 
Rogan of California, and Mr. Graham of South Carolina, have 
been appointed as managers.
  house resolution 611, in the house of representatives, december 19, 
                                  1998
    Resolved, That William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United 
States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the 
following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States 
Senate:
    Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives 
of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people 
of the United States of America, against William Jefferson Clinton, 
President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support 
of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

                               Article I

    In his conduct while President of the United States, William 
Jefferson Clinton, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully 
to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the 
best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of 
the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take 
care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and 
manipulated the judicial process of the United States for his personal 
gain and exoneration, impeding the administration of justice, in that:
    On August 17, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton swore to tell the 
truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth before a Federal 
grand jury of the United States. Contrary to that oath, William 
Jefferson Clinton willfully provided perjurious, false and misleading 
testimony to the grand jury concerning one or more of the following: 
(1) the nature and details of his relationship with a subordinate 
Government employee; (2) prior perjurious, false and misleading 
testimony he gave in a Federal civil rights action brought against him; 
(3) prior false and misleading statements he allowed his attorney to 
make to a Federal judge in that civil rights action; and (4) his 
corrupt efforts to influence the testimony of witnesses and to impede 
the discovery of evidence in that civil rights action.
    In doing this, William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the 
integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has 
betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive 
of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of 
the United States.
    Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants 
impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to 
hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United 
States.

                               Article II

    In his conduct while President of the United States, William 
Jefferson Clinton, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully 
to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the 
best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of 
the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take 
care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, 
and impeded the administration of justice, and has to that end engaged 
personally, and through his subordinates and agents, in a course of 
conduct or scheme designed to delay, impede, cover up, and conceal the 
existence of evidence and testimony related to a Federal civil rights 
action brought against him in a duly instituted judicial proceeding.
    The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme 
included one or more of the following acts:
    (1) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton 
corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought 
against him to execute a sworn affidavit in that proceeding that he 
knew to be perjurious, false and misleading.
    (2) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton 
corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action brought 
against him to give perjurious, false and misleading testimony if and 
when called to testify personally in that proceeding.
    (3) On or about December 28, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton 
corruptly engaged in, encouraged, or supported a scheme to conceal 
evidence that had been subpoenaed in a Federal civil rights action 
brought against him.
    (4) Beginning on or about December 7, 1997, and continuing through 
and including January 14, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton intensified 
and succeeded in an effort to secure job assistance to a witness in a 
Federal civil rights action brought against him in order to corruptly 
prevent the truthful testimony of that witness in that proceeding at a 
time when the truthful testimony of that witness would have been 
harmful to him.
    (5) On January 17, 1998, at his deposition in a Federal civil 
rights action brought against him, William Jefferson Clinton corruptly 
allowed his attorney to make false and misleading statements to a 
Federal judge characterizing an affidavit, in order to prevent 
questioning deemed relevant by the judge. Such false and misleading 
statements were subsequently acknowledged by his attorney in a 
communication to that judge.
    (6) On or about January 18 and January 20-21, 1998, William 
Jefferson Clinton related a false and misleading account of events 
relevant to a Federal civil rights action brought against him to a 
potential witness in that proceeding, in order to corruptly influence 
the testimony of that witness.
    (7) On or about January 21, 23, and 26, 1998, William Jefferson 
Clinton made false and misleading statements to potential witnesses in 
a Federal grand jury proceeding in order to corruptly influence the 
testimony of those witnesses. The false and misleading statements made 
by William Jefferson Clinton were repeated by the witnesses to the 
grand jury, causing the grand jury to receive false and misleading 
information.
    In all of this, William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the 
integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has 
betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive 
of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of 
the United States.
    Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants 
impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to 
hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United 
States.
                                 ______

with the preparation and the conduct of the trial, exhibit the articles 
of impeachment to the Senate and take all other actions necessary, 
which may include the following:

        and incurring such other expenses as may be necessary, to be 
        paid from amounts available to the Committee on the Judiciary 
        under applicable expense resolutions or from the applicable 
        accounts of the House of Representatives.
          (2) Sending for persons and papers, and filing with the

   UNANIMOUS-CONSENT AGREEMENT--RELATING TO ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT 
                   AGAINST WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON

    Mr. LOTT. Mr. President, pursuant to rule I of the Rules of 
Procedure and Practice When Sitting on Impeachment Trials, I 
ask unanimous consent that the Secretary of the Senate inform 
the House of Representatives that the Senate is ready to 
receive the managers appointed by the House for the purpose of 
exhibiting articles of impeachment against William Jefferson 
Clinton, President of the United States, agreeably to the 
notice communicated to the Senate, and that at the hour of 10 
a.m., on Thursday, January 7, 1999, the Senate will receive the 
honorable managers on the part of the House of Representatives 
in order that they may present and exhibit the articles of 
impeachment against William Jefferson Clinton, President of the 
United States.
    The PRESIDING OFFICER (Mr. Grams). Without objection, it is 
so ordered.
    Mr. LOTT. Mr. President, pursuant to rules III and IV of 
the Rules of Procedure and Practice When Sitting on Impeachment 
Trials, I ask unanimous consent that at the hour of 1 p.m. on 
Thursday, January 7, 1999, the Senate proceed to the 
consideration of the articles of impeachment and that the 
Presiding Officer, through the Secretary of the Senate, notify 
the Chief Justice of the United States of the time and place 
fixed for consideration of the articles and requesting his 
attendance as presiding officer pursuant to Article I, section 
3, clause 6, of the U.S. Constitution.
    I further ask consent that the Presiding Officer be 
authorized to appoint a committee of Senators, three upon the 
recommendation of the majority leader and two upon the 
recommendation of the Democratic leader, to escort the Chief 
Justice into the Senate Chamber.
    Finally, I ask consent that the Secretary of the Senate be 
directed to notify the House of Representatives of the time and 
place fixed for the Senate to proceed upon the impeachment of 
William Jefferson Clinton in the Senate Chamber.
    The PRESIDING OFFICER. Without objection, it is so ordered.
                                ------                                


                                PROGRAM

    Mr. LOTT. For the information of all Senators, the Senate 
will convene then at 9:45 a.m.
    The majority leader will be recognized in order to begin a 
live quorum. Following that live quorum at approximately 10 
a.m., the Senate will prepare to receive the managers from the 
House of Representatives for the purpose of exhibiting articles 
of impeachment.
    In addition, it is expected that at 1 p.m., the Senate will 
commence with the swearing in of the Chief Justice of the 
United States and all Senators.
    Mr. President, just one further note, if I might. I know 
that Senators, members of the media, and the American people 
are anxious to know how we plan to proceed. I think I should 
say at this point I think we had a very productive day. A lot 
of activities have been going on in a bipartisan way between 
Republicans, among themselves, and with the Democrats in the 
Senate and in the House. There is, in fact, a meeting underway 
right now with a bipartisan group of the Senate meeting with a 
group of managers from the House.
    We intend to continue to try to narrow the list of 
questions and come forward with a proposal that would provide 
for an early beginning, an appropriate time for briefs to be 
filed, for a full trial to be provided for, and votes on 
articles of impeachment at the end of the process. There are a 
lot of gaps around what I just said, but I think that there is 
a sincere bipartisan and a nonpartisan effort to do it in a way 
that is fair and that would get us to a conclusion on this 
matter which will be presented to us by the House of 
Representatives.
    We have a duty. We will do our very best to carry it out in 
a way that the American people will feel is appropriate for the 
Senate and that is dignified and fair.
    Mr. MOYNIHAN. Mr. President, will the distinguished 
majority leader yield?
    Mr. LOTT. I am delighted to yield to the distinguished 
Senator from New York.
    The PRESIDING OFFICER. The Senator from New York.
    Mr. MOYNIHAN. Mr. President, might I just confirm the 
observations of the distinguished majority leader. He has been 
faultless in his effort to find agreement on all sides in 
regard to all questions of which there is yet no list or likely 
ever to be a final one. But we admire him so and appreciate his 
efforts and will continue to work with him.
    Mr. LOTT. I thank Senator Moynihan for his remarks, for his 
wisdom, for his leadership, counsel, and the legislative acumen 
he has exhibited for so many years but also his efforts over 
this very day to remind us of what our responsibilities are and 
how difficult they will be and how they can be misconstrued. We 
will do our best to stand together to get this done in an 
appropriate way.
    I thank the Senator for his comments.

    EXHIBITION OF ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT AGAINST WILLIAM JEFFERSON 
                CLINTON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

    At 10:05 a.m., the managers on the part of the House of 
Representatives of the impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton 
appeared below the bar of the Senate, and the Sergeant at Arms, 
James W. Ziglar, announced their presence, as follows:

    Mr. President and Members of the Senate, I announce the

Representatives to conduct the proceedings on behalf of the 
House concerning the impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton, 
President of the United States.

    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The managers on the part of the 
House will be received and escorted to the well of the Senate.
    The managers were thereupon escorted by the Sergeant at 
Arms of the Senate, James W. Ziglar, to the well of the Senate.
    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Sergeant at Arms will make 
the proclamation.
    The Sergeant at Arms, James W. Ziglar, made the 
proclamation, as follows:

    Hear ye! Hear ye! Hear ye! All persons are commanded to 
keep silent, on pain of imprisonment, while the House of 
Representatives is exhibiting to the Senate of the United 
States articles of impeachment against William Jefferson 
Clinton, President of the United States.

    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The managers on the part of the 
House will proceed.
    Mr. Manager HYDE. Mr. President, the managers on the part 
of the House of Representatives are present and ready to 
present the articles of impeachment which have been preferred 
by the House of Representatives against William Jefferson 
Clinton, President of the United States.
    The House adopted the following resolution, which with the 
permission of the Senate I will read.

                          House Resolution 10

    Resolved, That in continuance of the authority conferred in House 
Resolution 614 of the One Hundred Fifth Congress adopted by the House 
of Representatives and delivered to the Senate on December 19, 1998, 
Mr. Hyde of Illinois, Mr. Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin, Mr. McCollum of 
Florida, Mr. Gekas of Pennsylvania, Mr. Canady of Florida, Mr. Buyer of 
Indiana, Mr. Bryant of Tennessee, Mr. Chabot of Ohio, Mr. Barr of 
Georgia, Mr. Hutchinson of Arkansas, Mr. Cannon of Utah, Mr. Rogan of 
California, and Mr. Graham of South Carolina are appointed managers to 
conduct the impeachment trial against William Jefferson Clinton, 
President of the United States, that a message be sent to the Senate to 
inform the Senate of these appointments, and that the managers so 
appointed may, in connection with the preparation and the conduct of 
the trial, exhibit the articles of impeachment to the Senate and take 
all other actions necessary, which may include the following:
    (1) Employing legal, clerical, and other necessary assistants and 
incurring such other expenses as may be necessary, to be paid from 
amounts available to the Committee on the Judiciary under applicable 
expense resolutions or from the applicable accounts of the House of 
Representatives.
    (2) Sending for persons and papers, and filing with the Secretary 
of the Senate, on the part of the House of Representatives, any 
pleadings, in conjunction with or subsequent to, the exhibition of the 
articles of impeachment that the managers consider necessary.

    With the permission of the Senate, I will now read the 
articles of impeachment, House Resolution 611.

                          House Resolution 611

  Resolved, That William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United 
States, is impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the 
following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States 
Senate:
  Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of 
the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of 
the United States of America, against William Jefferson Clinton, 
President of the United States of America, in maintenance and support 
of its impeachment against him for high crimes and misdemeanors.

                               Article I

  In his conduct while President of the United States, William 
Jefferson Clinton, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully 
to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the 
best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of 
the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take 
care that the laws be faithfully executed, has willfully corrupted and 
manipulated the judicial process of the United States for his personal 
gain and exoneration, impeding the administration of justice, in that:
  On August 17, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton swore to tell the 
truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth before a Federal 
grand jury of the United States. Contrary to that oath, William 
Jefferson Clinton willfully provided perjurious, false and misleading 
testimony to the grand jury concerning one or more of the following: 
(1) the nature and details of his relationship with a subordinate 
Government employee; (2) prior perjurious, false and misleading 
testimony he gave in a Federal civil rights action brought against him; 
(3) prior false and misleading statements he allowed his attorney to 
make to a Federal judge in that civil rights action; and (4) his 
corrupt efforts to influence the testimony of witnesses and to impede 
the discovery of evidence in that civil rights action.
  In doing this, William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the integrity 
of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has betrayed 
his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive of the 
rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of the 
United States.
  Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants 
impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to 
hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United 
States.

                               Article II

  In his conduct while President of the United States, William 
Jefferson Clinton, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully 
to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the 
best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of 
the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take 
care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, 
and impeded the administration of justice, and has to that end engaged 
personally, and through his subordinates and agents, in a course of 
conduct or scheme designed to delay, impede, cover up, and conceal the 
existence of evidence and testimony related to a Federal civil rights 
action brought against him in a duly instituted judicial proceeding.
  The means used to implement this course of conduct or scheme included 
one or more of the following acts:
          (1) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton 
        corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action 
        brought against him to execute a sworn affidavit in that 
        proceeding that he knew to be perjurious, false and misleading.
          (2) On or about December 17, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton 
        corruptly encouraged a witness in a Federal civil rights action 
        brought against him to give perjurious, false and misleading 
        testimony if and when called to testify personally in that 
        proceeding.
          (3) On or about December 28, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton 
        corruptly engaged in, encouraged, or supported a scheme to 
        conceal evidence that had been subpoenaed in a Federal civil 
        rights action brought against him.
          (4) Beginning on or about December 7, 1997, and continuing 
        through and including January 14, 1998, William Jefferson 
        Clinton intensified and succeeded in an effort to secure job 
        assistance to a witness in a Federal civil rights action 
        brought against him in order to corruptly prevent the truthful 
        testimony of that witness in that proceeding at a time when the 
        truthful testimony of that witness would have been harmful to 
        him.
          (5) On January 17, 1998, at his deposition in a Federal civil 
        rights action brought against him, William Jefferson Clinton 
        corruptly allowed his attorney to make false and misleading 
        statements to a Federal judge characterizing an affidavit, in 
        order to prevent questioning deemed relevant by the judge. Such 
        false and misleading statements were subsequently acknowledged 
        by his attorney in a communication to that judge.
          (6) On or about January 18 and January 20-21, 1998, William 
        Jefferson Clinton related a false and misleading account of 
        events relevant to a Federal civil rights action brought 
        against him to a potential witness in that proceeding, in order 
        to corruptly influence the testimony of that witness.
          (7) On or about January 21, 23, and 26, 1998, William 
        Jefferson Clinton made false and misleading statements to 
        potential witnesses in a Federal grand jury proceeding in order 
        to corruptly influence the testimony of those witnesses. The 
        false and misleading statements made by William Jefferson 
        Clinton were repeated by the witnesses to the grand jury, 
        causing the grand jury to receive false and misleading 
        information.
  In all of this, William Jefferson Clinton has undermined the 
integrity of his office, has brought disrepute on the Presidency, has 
betrayed his trust as President, and has acted in a manner subversive 
of the rule of law and justice, to the manifest injury of the people of 
the United States.
  Wherefore, William Jefferson Clinton, by such conduct, warrants 
impeachment and trial, and removal from office and disqualification to 
hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United 
States.
    Passed the House of Representatives December 19, 1998. Newt 
Gingrich, Speaker of the House of Representatives. Attest: Robin H. 
Carle, Clerk.

    Mr. President, that completes the exhibition of the 
articles of impeachment against William Jefferson Clinton, 
President of the United States. The managers request that the 
Senate take order for the trial. The managers now request leave 
to withdraw.
    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. Thank you, Mr. Manager Hyde. The 
Senate will notify the House of Representatives when it is 
ready to proceed.

upon the table.
    The PRESIDENT pro tempore. Without objection, it is so 
ordered.
    The resolution (S. Res. 11) was agreed to.
    The resolution reads as follows:

                               S. Res. 11

    Resolved, That paragraph 1 of rule IV of the Rules for the 
Regulation of the Senate Wing of the United States Capitol (prohibiting

to be taken on January 7, 1999, of the swearing in of Members of the
