The Clinton trial
26 January 1999
I agree completely with your reasoned arguments regarding the right-wing attack on President Clinton. Why is it that the mainstream press is more interested in hearing the views of their standard "talking heads" than providing a true analysis of the illegality of the actions taken against our President? What can any of us do that are not in the political power structure to help stop this tawdry and illegal action by the Congress? Also, the latest and most ridiculous claim by the Republican majority to date is that they will decide on whether or not witnesses are to be called after they hear both sides of the argument. Any thinking person knows they decided that immediately after the house right-wing advocates told them they must allow witnesses to be called. The vote to call witnesses will be pretty close to 55 to 45 in favor. If any perjury is being done it is being done by the Senate Republicans at this time.
Thanks for your fair analysis.
