On Dec. 11, after seven days of hearings, a bitterly split House Judiciary Committee voted to recommend the impeachment of President Clinton. On a 21 to 16 straight party-line vote, the committee approved an article of impeachment asserting that Clinton committed perjury before Starr's grand jury. Later that day the committee passed two more articles, alleging perjury in the Paula Jones suit and obstruction of justice. The next day, it passed a fourth, alleging that Clinton abused his power.
