Bill Moyers' most important program
Bill Moyers' Journal last Friday night presented a full hour of "Tough Talk on Impeachment" .
I believe it was the most important program of his career and a groundbreaking look at the impeachment question. We ignore it at our peril.
Watch this startling interview TOUGH TALK ON IMPEACHMENT VIDEO, Bill Moyers
BILL MOYERS JOURNAL 7/13/ explores the talk of impeachment with (very) conservative Constitutional scholar Bruce FeinM, who wrote the first article of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, and THE NATION's John Nichols, author of “THE GENIUS OF IMPEACHMENT”.
The message is remarkably clear and urgent. We must impeach or we may lose our democractic system forever. EVERYONE needs to hear it.
Bruce Fein: "Bush is seeking institutionally to cripple checks and balances and the authority of Congress and the judiciary to superintend his assertions of power. He has claimed the authority to tell Congress they don't have any right to know what he's doing with relation to spying on American citizens, using that information in any way that he wants in contradiction to a federal statute called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. He's claimed authority to say he can kidnap people, throw them into dungeons abroad, dump them out into Siberia without any political or legal accountability. These are standards that are totally anathema to a democratic society devoted to the rule of law."
