And if you do that and you do that honestly according to the oath you took, you can not. You can censure President Clinton. You can hand President Clinton over to the prosecutor for President Clinton to be prosecuted, But you can not convict President Clinton. And you can not indulge yourselves the luxury or the right to ignore this history.
