Summarized by Eileen Bell

Washington Post 9Jan99; Page B10

Staff researchers Margot Williams, Heming Nelson, Richard Drezen and Alice Crites contributed to this report.

This article looks at how members of various religions voted in last month's House of Representatives impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton. While most of the voting followed party lines, some analysis also shows possible religious connections. All ten LDS members of the House voted in favor of the impeachment articles.

The article also lists the religions of the 13 House Judiciary Committee Repulbicans who will argue the case during the Senate trial. They include Rep. Chris Cannon of Utah, who is LDS.

In the new Senate, there are eight new senators, including Michael D. Crapo of Idaho, who is LDS. Senator Crapo had served in the previous House of Representatives. There are five Latter-day Saints serving in the Senate in total.
