GOP veterans of Clinton’s impeachment urge caution on Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republicans who carried out President Bill Clinton’s impeachment in 1998 are unanimous in urging caution and restraint as Congress embarks on yet another impeachment struggle, this time against President Donald Trump.

Clinton’s impeachment opened a new, angry chapter of American politics that strained Washington institutions that were stronger then than now. The Republicans who were part of it are warning against a rush to judgment against Trump.

Some have regrets. A few can’t talk about it. Others would do it all again.

Former congressman Bill McCollum of Florida says that too many people have made up their minds _ on both sides. He says people should wait before making a judgment on whether or not there’s even an impeachable offense until all the facts are on the table.
