5. Rollcall No. 5Amendment to Article IV Offered by Rep. Gekas

An amendment was offered by Mr. Gekas to Article IV of the Hyde resolution which struck the word “repeatedly" as a description of conduct that resulted in the misuse and abuse of the President's office to correspond with the deletion of Paragraphs 1, 2, and 3. Article IV had set forth several grounds to impeach President William Jefferson Clinton for misuse and abuse of the office of the President. Paragraph 1 of Article IV, which was deleted by the amendment, stated that President William Jefferson Clinton willfully made false and misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States. Paragraph 2 of Article IV, which was deleted by the amendment, stated that President William Jefferson Clinton willfully made false and misleading statements to members of his cabinet and White House aides, so that these statements would be repeated publicly using public re

sources for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States. Paragraph 3 of Article IV, which was deleted by the amendment, stated that as President, using the Office of the White House counsel, William Jefferson Clinton did frivolously and corruptly assert executive privilege for the purpose of delaying and obstructing a federal criminal investigation and the proceeding of the grand jury. The remaining Paragraph 4 of Article IV was rewritten by the amendment and provides that President William Jefferson Clinton made false and misleading sworn statements, refused and failed to respond to certain written requests for admissions asked of him by the House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States (answers to the 81 questions), showing contempt for the impeachment inquiry process. The amendment was adopted by a vote of 29 ayes, 5 noes and 3 present.

7. Rollcall No. 7Censure Resolution

Although not germane to the consideration of a privileged impeachment resolution, Chairman Hyde and the Committee agreed to consider a joint resolution sponsored by Mr. Boucher that would express the sense of Congress with respect to the censure of President William Jefferson Clinton. The joint resolution of censure offered by Mr. Boucher was defeated by a vote 14 ayes, 22 nays and 1 present. The text of the joint resolution follows:

JOINT RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of Congress with respect to the censure of William Jefferson Clinton. Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That it is the sense of Congress that,

(1) on January 20, 1993, William Jefferson Clinton took the oath prescribed by the Constitution of the United States faithfully to execute the office of President; implicit in that oath is the obligation that the President set an example of high moral standards and conduct himself in a manner that fosters respect for the truth; and William Jefferson Clinton, has egregiously failed in this obligation, and through his actions violated the trust of the American people, lessened their esteem for the office of President, and dishonored the office which they have entrusted to him;

(2)(A) William Jefferson Clinton made false statements concerning his reprehensible conduct with a subordinate;

(B) William Jefferson Clinton wrongly took steps to delay discovery of the truth; and

(C) in as much as no person is above the law, William Jefferson Clinton remains subject to criminal and civil penalties; and

(3) William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States, by his conduct has brought upon himself, and fully deserves, the censure and condemnation of the American people and the Congress; and by his signature on this Joint Resolution, acknowledges this censure and condemnation.
