(AP Wirephoto) ' In Televised Debate Thornton Sees Necessity Of Check On Abuses WASHINGTON Ray Thornton, (AP) D-Ark., Rep. said Thursday night he had readied the firm conviction that President Nixon had violated his oath of office and was guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. While the congressman avoided an irretrievable commitment, he indicated that at this time he believes the President should be impeached. Thornton, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, said he intended to reserve his final judgment on whether to vole in favor of impeachment until afler the debate has end- cci. Thornton made the nationally televised remarks during the committee's impeachment proceedings. Thornton had been considered one of the eight members of the 38-member committee still undecided. The voles members had been called The of these eight "swing voles" on whether the committee would recommend to the full House that articles of impeachment be voted against the President. Thornton made it clear Thursday night that he was deeply disturbed with the President's alleged abuses of power and alleged obstruction of justice. STATEMENT MADE Speaking on whether the committee should recommend impeachment, "the Arkansas Democrat said, "In my view to find otherwise would effectively repeal the right o! this body lo act as a check on the abuses which we see have existed." Thornton has, in the past, re fused even to hint about how he would vote during the com mittce hearings. "Most of the people in m; home state of Arkansas arc lav. abiding citizens who b e l i e v e strongly in the rule of law o this country, and that all thi people of this country have an obligation to live oy that stand ard .of law," Thornton said He said the leaders of Amer ica have an obligation no merely to obey the-law but lo sel an example of justice am adherence lo justice upon which "our free governmen must be based.'" Thornton was unopposed fo second term in the recent Democratic primary and faces 0 Republican opposition in the vlov. 5 general election. He said he had read all of the otters that had been written to lim Jy his constituents ' con- :erning impeachment. LETTERS RECOGNIZE "Those letters that advocate mpeachment do so with a sad- icss that recognizes the trauma if this process. "There arc other letters hich come from people- who jelieve that the charges against he President are the result of 1 publicity campaign and, per- iaps, some of these people will (ever believe anything else," Thornton said. As long as people who believe n the rule of law are in the majority in this country, he added, "Our free institutions are going to survive, and there will be no'need to worry aboul ersonal political considera- .ions when called upon to make a judgment sucli as the one we now have to make. It's clear thai a president should never be impeachec simply because of the unpopu he world to have the words o he person who is being check d into available to listen to." arity ideas. of his .policies or his It s h o u l d be equally clear that the popularity of a jresident must never permit him to place himself above the law." To justify bringing articles ql impeachment against the President. Thornton said it was not enough/ to demonstrate probable '·_, cause that crimes anc" abuses had' occurred. REPEATS LAW "It is also necessary tha these actions constitute h i g h crimes against and misdemeanors the system of govern ment itself," . the congressman said. Thornton said there can be no mistake that Nixon was aware of the Watergate cover-up and generally approved of efforts ti contain the evidence. Thornton repeatedly referrec to specific testimony made be fore the committee. In an apparent reference tr speeches made, by some - Re publican members of the com mittee in which the question o whether there exists direct ev rlence implicating the Presiden in some wrongdoing, Thornto: said, "Talk about direct ev: dence. It's the rarest thing i At many reak-in at eadquarters times since tin the Demo era tii Washington hornton said, Nixon had ade .uate opportunity and couk ave chosen th'e "course of obe [fence to law, of full and fai lisclosure to the special prose :utors and o f ' separating him elf from those who had aged in the conspiracy.
