31. I understand your point, and I believe it has validity
However, I am not in any way advocating that investigations not be objective.

A major point that I am making is that the current evidence on impeachable offenses is overwhelming. Acknowleding that does not necessarily make one non-objective. If someone was to say, let's consider this evidence (that clearly points towards guilt) and evaluate it with the idea of proceeding towards impeachment I don't believe that that shows non-objectivity. It is true, I agree, that some people may see it that way, and we have to be careful about that.
