((CORRESPONDENT SCRIPT))

v/o#1: acting more quickly than expected, the committee on professional

conduct of the Arkansas supreme court is recommending that disbarment proceedings be initiated against the president.
The recommendation is based on the finding that Mr. clinton engaged in SERIOUS MISCONDUCT by lying under oath in his deposition in the Paula Jones case more than two years ago.
But Mr. clinton says theres no precedent for the recommendation that his license to practice law be revoked. he says that other cases in which lawyers faced similar charges did not result in a recommendation of disbarment.

SOT CLINTON (MANDATORY CREDIT: NBC NIGHTLY NEWS with Tom Brokaw): the

precedents contradict this decision. Well give the judge the chance to do what we think it right. And I think thats the right thing to do. :10

v/o#2: the president says he does not intend to take part in his own

defense - at least not while hes still in office.

SOT CLINTON (same FONT): Well, when IM not president anymore, Ill be

happy to defend myself.

v/o#3: the disbarment recommendation goes to a circuit court in little

rock. If the judge there also finds for disbarment, the president can appeal the matter to the Arkansas supreme court.
The presidents private lawyer David Kendall - says hell vigorously dispute the disbarment recommendation. mk, cbsn, the wht hs.
