((
LOCATOR: CAPITOL HILL.

NATSOT: ARTICLE ONE IS ADOPTED.

The result was expected...impeachment, led by the Republican majority in the House.
The effect extends a constitutional chill across the nation.

NATSOT: ARTICLE THREE IS ADOPTED.


Divided mostly along party lines, the House of Representatives approved two of the four articles of impeachment against the President: perjury before a grand jury...and obstruction of justice.

NATSOT: CLINTON AND WIFE WALKING TO PODIUM AT WHITE HOUSE.


After almost a year of denials, appeals, and finally contrition...Mr. Clinton became the first President to be impeached in 130 years. But he put the country on notice that he wasn't planning on going anywhere.

SOT (CLINTON): I AM STILL COMMITTED TO WORKING WITH PEOPLE OF GOOD FAITH

AND GOOD WILL OF BOTH PARTIES TO DO WHAT'S BEST FOR OUR COUNTRY TO BRING OUR NATION TOGETHER TO LIFT US UP....IT'S WHAT I TRIED TO DO FOR SIX YEARS IT'S WHAT I INTEND TO DO FOR THE NEXT TWO UNTIL THE LAST HOUR OF THE LAST DAY OF MY TERM.

NATSOT: DEMCOCRATS WALKING OUT.


At one point, the Democrats temporarily walk out of the House...protesting their failed attempt to censure the President instead of impeaching him.
And the controversy claimed another significant victim.

SOT 4405 (REP. BOB LIVINGSTON/R-LA.): I WILL NOT STAND FOR THE

SPEAKERSHIP.
Bob Livingston announced he would step aside as incoming House Speaker...because of his own marital infidelities.

The papers, including one published by Saddam Hussein's ruling party suggest that Iraq will stand by its vow to end the work of U-N weapons inspection teams.
That pledge was made even before the air strikes ended.

Officials say the airstrikes seriously damaged Saddam's military capability.
Clinton says further military action will be taken if Iraq does not comply or if the government threatens other U-S allies.
