CLINTON IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS BEGIN

The House of Representatives Judiciary Committee opened hearings on the
possible impeachment of President Clinton Thursday with the testimony of
independent counsel Kenneth Starr. Starr, whose appearance was widely
televised, reviewed the evidence he collected against Clinton and contended
again that the President’s offenses in the Monica Lewinsky affair, notably
perjury and obstruction, were impeachable. Later he defended his inquiry
against accusations of misconduct delivered by Clinton’s attorney. Starr
also noted that he had not found enough evidence of impeachable offenses in
three other alleged scandals, including the Whitewater dealings.

CLINTON BEGINS ASIAN TRIP IN JAPAN

President Clinton delivered a speech which later broadcast across Japan on
the first day of a five-day-long tour that will also take him to South
Korea and Guam. Clinton encouraged the nation not to be pessimistic about
its current economic depression, though he has also expressed concern over
the openness of Japanese markets to American goods. The visit also included
a meeting with Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko over tea.
