Hatch's role in President Clinton's Trial

Summarized by Kent Larsen

Presidency's fate in Senate's hands
BBC News 5Jan99

U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch, a member of the LDS Church, will play a key role in the trial of President Clinton. The BBC gives a short profile of Hatch, who was one of the first Republicans to suggest a way out for Clinton, saying that Clinton should apologize and seek forgiveness. But when Clinton offered half-hearted admissions, Hatch, uncharacteristically, angrily called him a "jerk."

Hatch is Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and could still play a role in arranging a compromise.

The BBC also mentions Hatch's songwriting efforts, noting that one of the songs he wrote is called "Heal Our Land." The BBC asks "Will he be able to do this in the Senate?"
