"Henry Hyde on Clinton: During the impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives, Hyde was the lead prosecutor and one of Clinton's most outspoken critics. Hyde, R-Ill., said the president should be impeached because he "trivializes, ignores and shreds the sanctity of the oath" of office.
During the impeachment proceedings it was revealed that Hyde had cheated on his wife during the 1960s. He dismissed the revelation by saying that it was a "youthful indiscretion." He was 42 at the time of the affair."
