David Schipper’s Report to the House Judiciary Committee

The following is the text of the report to the House Judiciary Committee from David P. Schippers, the committee’s chief investigative counsel in the impeachment inquiry.

Report by David Schippers to the House Judiciary Committee.

On Oct. 5, 1998, I came before this Committee to advise you of the results of our analysis and review of the Referral from the Office of the Independent Counsel.

In addition, I asserted that the Report and analysis was merely a litany of crimes that MIGHT HAVE been committed. [Read more…]

Text of testimony by former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld before the House Judiciary Committee, as transcribed by the Federal Document Clearing House.

Mr. Chairman, Mr. Ranking Member, members of the committee, my name is William Weld, and I’m sincerely honored to appear before you this morning.

I’m no Tom Sullivan, but I have knocked around the criminal justice world a little bit. From 1986 to 1988 under President Reagan, I was the assistant attorney general in charge of the criminal division in Washington, which is relevant because that’s the policy or political appointment charged with ensuring the uniformity of charging decisions, decisions whether to seek an indictment around the country in various districts.

Response from President Clinton to the House Judiciary Committee’s 81 questions.

Set forth below are the answers to the questions that you have asked me.

I would like to repeat, at the outset, something that I have said before about my approach to these proceedings. I have asked my attorneys to participate actively, but the fact that there is a legal defense to the various allegations cannot obscure the hard truth, as I have said repeatedly, that my conduct was wrong. It was also wrong to mislead people about what happened and I deeply regret that. [Read more…]
