Closing arguments ended Monday in President Clinton's impeachment trial with presentations from the House trial managers and White House counsel Charles Ruff.

On Saturday House managers and White House lawyers used dueling snippets from the videotaped depositions of Monica Lewinsky, Vernon Jordan and Sidney Blumenthal to buttress the cases for and against removing President Clinton from office.
