EXCERPT:

LOFGREN: "Well, I think unlike some of the other proceedings, we got the best evidence at the very beginning. The do-me-a-favor-though phone call laid out really a 'this for that' improper scenario where the foreign aid that was the law to be released was being held for a personal political reason. And all of the testimony subsequent to that really just buttressed what appeared at the beginning. The shocking thing to me is that the people who could have come forward and perhaps given a more benign explanation were prevented from doing so by the President which does make you infer that they really could not exonerate the President. The question now is what to do about it."
