   Disavowing the partisan impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton.

Whereas the impeachment process provides a mechanism for the removal of the 
        President, Vice President, and other federal civil officers found to 
        have engaged in ``treason, bribery, or other high crimes and 
        misdemeanors'';
Whereas the Constitution places the responsibility and authority to determine 
        whether to impeach and to draft articles of impeachment in the hands of 
        the House of Representatives;
Whereas the House took up four articles of impeachment on December 18, 1998, in 
        the 105th Congress, and acted in a politically partisan manner during 
        the impeachment of President William Jefferson Clinton; and
Whereas the American public trusts their elected representatives to serve in an 
        impartial and appropriate manner given the severity of the disciplinary 
        action sought to remove President Clinton from office: Now, therefore, 
        be it
    Resolved, That the House disavows the articles of impeachment filed 
against President William Jefferson Clinton given the irresponsible and 
inappropriately partisan manner in which the House discharged its 
constitutional duties.
