I'm demanding that they charge me with contempt and with perjury, I'm demanding it.

I met him to try and bring about an end to sanctions, suffering and war, and on the second occasion, I met him to try and persuade him to allow Hans Blix and U.N. inspectors back into country.

Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong.

I am an opponent of Saddam Hussein, but an opponent also, of the sanctions that have killed a million Iraqi children and an opponent of the United States' apparent desire to plunge the Middle East into a new and devastating war.

I would rather be eating cheese and reading Sartre on the banks of the river Seine than eating popcorn with a born again bible-belt fundamentalist Republican administration in Crawford, Texas, execution capital of the world.

What counts is not the names on the paper; what counts is: Where is the money, senator? Who paid me hundreds of thousands of dollars of money? The answer to that is 'nobody,'.

He may have signed an oil contract. It had nothing to do with me, ... I was aware he was doing extensive business with Iraq. I did not know the details of it. It was not my business.

Charge me, then. Charge me with perjury. I'll fly out tomorrow if you lay out these charges, and I'll have my day in court. And I'll disprove them, categorically.

Charge me with perjury and I will be on the next plane to the U.S. I'll face them in court. You cannot get clearer than that. It's put up or shut up.
