In a scrupuosly well-documented and carefilly written 24-page
letter to Atty. Gen. Janet Reno, House Judiciary Chairman,
Henry Hyde (R.-Ill) and the other republican committee members
have outlined what they believe to be "overwhelming and widely
available" evidence suggesting that Bill Clinton and Vice President
Al Gore may have violated numerous federal felony statutes --
including those forbidding bribery, extortion and using the White House to solicit campaign contributions.
"Numerous published reports describe circumstances that suggest
that President Clinton may have received campaign contributions
in return for government actions he took on behalf of the
contributors", Hyde wrote in a letter delivered to Reno by courier
late on the afternoon of September 3.
Hyde said such actions would violate not only federal bribery
statute 18USC 201 but also "18 USC 371 (conspiracy to defraud
the United States), 600(promising of government benefits in return
for political support), 872(extortion by government officials), and
1341, 1343, and 1346(mail and wire fraud by defrauding the
United States of honest services)."
All 20 republican Members of the Judiciary Committee joined
Hyde in signing the letter. This is the same committee that would
oversee any impeachment inquiry"...............
