Deposition Transcripts to be Released

NPR's Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on apparent bipartisanship as impeachment proceedings against President Clinton wind down. Democrats and Republicans crossed party lines yesterday, first voting to defeat a request to have Monica Lewinsky testify before the Senate, and then voting her videotaped testimony into the evidentiary record. The pithiest comment of the day came from a private citizen in the Senate gallery who rose and shouted, "Good God almighty, take the vote and get it over with!" The man was escorted out of the gallery.
