In a day-long public hearing into the consequences of impeachment, the House Judiciary Committee heard yesterday from judges, military officers and convicted perjurers about the seriousness and consequences of perjury. Members voted along party lines to issue new subpoenas related to Clinton’s campaign finances among protests from Democrats who asked Republicans to "bring us out of the chaos."

  • Gary Ruskin, from the Congressional Accountability Project.
