(( The man in charge of the impeachment inquiry came right to the point: the results of this week's elections did not derail his proceedings...calling it a question of duty.

INTENTION IS TO RESOLVE THIS MATTER WITH FAIRNESS, HONOR AND EXPEDITION. WITH THE PRESIDENTS COOPERATION, WE WILL MEET OUR GOAL OF FINISHING BY THE END OF THE YEAR.
Henry Hyde has sent the President a letter...formally asking Mr. Clinton to help narrow the focus of the impeachment inquiry...by admitting or denying certain allegations about the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Hyde also announced that, for now, the only major witness the Republicans intend to call is Independent Counsel, Kenneth Starr. It's scheduled for two weeks from now...the same time the G-O-P will be deciding on its leadership for the next Congress.
The Republicans seem to be toning down their impeachment efforts...to the delight of the White House.
LOCATOR: WASHINGTON, D.C.
The President was asked, again, what, specifically, he disputes in the Starr report. He didn't answer directly...but it was clear his take on the election outcome is different from Hyde's.

SOT 5037(CLINTON): THE AMERICAN PEOPLE SENT US A MESSAGE THAT WOULD

BREAK THE EARDRUMS OF ANYONE WHO WAS LISTENING. THEY WANT THEIR BUSINESS TENDED TO. THEY ARE TIRED OF SEEING WASHINGTON FOCUSED ON POLITICS AND PERSONALITIES.
Hyde also expects Kenneth Starr will be asked questions about the other areas he has been investigating for the past four years.
STAND-UP (JONATHAN FREED/CBS NEWS): ALTHOUGH HYDE IS CLAIMING THE ELECTION HASN'T INFLUENCED HIS THINKING...HE IS NOW SUGGESTING THAT ALL OF THIS COULD RESULT IN A DEAL TO CENSURE THE PRESIDENT. BUT HE THINKS THAT WOULD ONLY HAPPEN AFTER A HOUSE VOTE TO IMPEACH. J-F...WHITE HOUSE.))
