After finishing a daylong review and debate over thousands more pages of evidence against President Clinton, Rep. Chris Cannon, R-Utah, said Friday he has no doubt a full-blown impeachment investigation is warranted.

"As a lawyer, I'd rather prosecute this than defend it," he said Friday.That came after the House Judiciary Committee, on which he sits, held another 11 hours of closed-door meetings to decide how much to release publicly from a last set of information sent to Congress by in-dep-endent counsel Kenneth Starr.

It voted to release tapes made by Linda Tripp of phone conversations with Monica Lewinsky about her affair with Clinton, plus thousands of pages of other materials.
