Statement by Senator Spencer Abraham (Republican – Michigan)
Despite the handicaps placed upon the House managers, I feel they did an excellent job in presenting their case in support of the articles of impeachment and laying out the facts. I listened to them carefully, as I listened to the White House Counsel and the President’s lawyers in their vigorous defense of William Jefferson Clinton.
