NPR''s Chitra Ragavan reports that Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee accuse Chairman Henry Hyde of delaying the vote on whether to begin impeachment proceedings against President Clinton, so that Republicans can take political advantage in the November elections. Hyde announced yesterday that the committee vote won''t take place until October 5th or 6th and that the full House won''t vote until the 8th or 9th. Democrats say Republicans already have decided to go ahead with the inquiry and don''t need to wait two weeks.
