John Warner on the other hand has expressed deep disappointment in the Presdent so it was somewhat of a surprise that he did not find him quilty of pergery.

Warner says the nation's focus must now be on healing, to preserve our strength as a nation in the eyes of the world. For John Warner who over came a tough battle from within his own party to win reelection in 1996 until 2002, and who just took over a powerful Senate committee, there may be few political consequences left to fear.
