Impeachment Trial Guidelines

PR's Peter Kenyon reports on the rules that the Republican majority in the Senate has laid down for the remainder of President Clinton's impeachment trial. On Monday, Monica Lewinsky will be deposed in private, and her testimony will be transcribed and videotaped. Whether the videotapes will be shown on the Senate floor will be decided by a Senate vote. The same procedure will apply to the depositions of White House aide Sidney Blumenthal and the President's friend, Vernon Jordan.
