RESOLUTION



Impeaching William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States,
for high crimes and misdemeanors.

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 willfully corrupted and
manipulated the judicial process of the United States for his personal
gain and exoneration, impeding the administration of justice, in that:
(1) On December 23, 1997, William Jefferson Clinton, in
sworn answers to written questions asked as part of a Federal
civil rights action brought against him, willfully provided
perjurious, false and misleading testimony in response to
questions deemed relevant by a Federal judge concerning conduct
and proposed conduct with subordinate employees.
(2) On January 17, 1998, William Jefferson Clinton swore
under oath to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but
the truth in a deposition given as part of a Federal civil
rights action brought against him. Contrary to that oath,
William Jefferson Clinton willfully provided perjurious, false
and misleading testimony in response to questions deemed
relevant by a Federal judge concerning the nature and details
of his relationship with a subordinate Government employee, his
knowledge of that employee's involvement and participation in
the civil rights action brought against him, and his corrupt
efforts to influence the testimony of that employee.
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.

Article III

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.

Article IV

Using the powers and influence of the office of 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 disregard of
his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully
executed, has engaged in conduct that resulted in misuse and abuse of
his high office, impaired the due and proper administration of justice
and the conduct of lawful inquiries, and contravened the authority of
the legislative branch and the truth seeking purpose of a coordinate
investigative proceeding, in that, as President, William Jefferson
Clinton refused and failed to respond to certain written requests for
admission and willfully made perjurious, false and misleading sworn
statements in response to certain written requests for admission
propounded to him as part of the impeachment inquiry authorized by the
House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States. William
Jefferson Clinton, in refusing and failing to respond and in making
perjurious, false and misleading statements, assumed to himself
functions and judgments necessary to the exercise of the sole power of
impeachment vested by the Constitution in the House of Representatives
and exhibited contempt for the inquiry.
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.
