Gorton was going home so may peruse it on his ride. Grassley started making apologies as we left and he locked up: "There was no conspiracy. We never got into a room and said, 'we're going to get the President' ". I said, "Yeah, but I bet Delay + Gingrich (+Lott) did". "Oh, that was over there." (the unruly children of the House) "Come on Senator, you could have stopped this right off the bat". The Repubs are looking for cover now that this might evaporate into a dirty hangover. Credit to Chuck for spending 10 min. debating with the opposition. Once in the linked Hart/Dirkson Senate Bldg., you can't leave late- all entrances are locked and the guards evaporate- there was an empty office and considered setting up shop- new Senator from Puerto Rico or Palau?

I still am amazed that there wasn't one Republican Senator with the guts to stand up and say "This is a mistake + we're not going to do this", which would have caused at least 5 others to take a stand... but the Republicans have shown themselves to be without spine or sense... and will pay for it in 2000.

Why Clinton Is So Hated

Appeal to Republicans + Address to Congress: best sent letter Sept 10-20,98

Why Clinton Lied:Media firestorm; Stenanopolous's + Panetta's betrayal

Sins of the Press: Lazy, lame, slanted coverage has been the rule; Better if it's an even battle, so let's give Clinton a handicap: guilty until proven innocent

Historian's statement 400 historians inc. Arthur Schlesinger, Dorris Kearns Goodwin, Garry Wills, signed a statement that impeachment proceeding were "ominous, dangerous, undermining the Constitution."

Cancer on the Presidency: Starr (Aug): Unfairness of Special Prosecutor statue and Starr's actions 


WHY IMPEACHMENT WAS A PARTISAN WITCHUNT

Clinton's offenses are personal and minor: They are NOT related to government and so are NOT IMPEACHABLE (SIGN Petition Below)

Republicans know this but are pressing forward only because of imagined political advantage

No one in American history has been so thoroughly and unfairly investigated as Bill Clinton, yet they have to resort to a private seksual* relationship to bring him down ...*stupid kiddie software

Ken Starr is a obsessive extremist who's massively abused his power (financially destroying dozens of innocents); just forcing the Secret Service to testify might get some President killed; and is close to treason.

This witchhunt has been fueled for 5 years by $12-15 million from right-wing millionaire Richard Mellon Scaife and the Bradley Foundation + their funded "legal" foundations, several of which Starr belongs to: he was helping Paula Jones before he was appointed

The release of transcripts, video, and tapes from the grand juries is a shocking unprecedented violation of law, rights, privacy, and decency... and solely designed to smear Mr. Clinton and embarrass him out of office

80% of Congress could be impeached by these standards: Henry Hyde set a married woman with 3 kids up as his mistress for 2 years and destroyed a family. Bob Barr, Livingston, and many others have had multiple adulterous affairs.

The world still trembles at the edge of a financial precipice, Russia could go Communist or military in some violent coup, India and Pakistan are close to nuclear war.... and the Congress only worries about whether the President touched a brest*.

The Press has pumped this story irresponsibly to sell papers, mags, and soap; the Republicans have exploited it for cheap political advantage, the Supreme Court has used it to dangerously encroach into the Executive; Monica, Linda + Lucianne have tried to make millions off it; Ken Starr has become a grand inquisitor unseen since Joe McCarthy; Everyone has acted badly

This whole process is insane- we are crippling ourselves for no good reason before our enemies- impeachment will take 6-9 months and may cause us to enter the new millennium in a crushing Depression

But you the people have the power to STOP THE MADNESS The Congress WORKS FOR YOU.They HAVE to listen to you. You aren't a helpless couch potato in the television parade of the future.

Contact your national (29 SWING MEMBERS at BOTTOM) Republican Senators + Reps and tell them that if they vote for impeachment or conviction; you will not vote for a single Republican- when they realize the benefit is negative, they may finally end this.

OUR PURPOSE:

To Produce and Run Radio,Television, + Newspaper Ads

To Picket Congress and Contact + Pressure them to STOP THIS MADNESS

To petition Janet Reno to FIRE Ken Starr and to get him DISBARRED - He thinks he's going to prosecute Clinton after he's removed from office!! His serious abuses of power dwarf Clinton's.
Sign Petition below to get on E-mail List


PETITION TO FIRE STARR

Dear Ms. Attorney Gen. Reno,

We believe Ken Starr has massively abused his position. He has:

---Repeatedly leaked grand jury testimony (a felony), violating his sworn legal oath; then enclosing all that graphic testimony in his "report" knowing it would be released by a partisan Judicial Committee
---Endangered every President's life by forcing the Secret Service to testify- a stunning breech of security
---Tortured and impoverished innocent people for years with endless fishing trip subpoenas and endless grand juries in a desperate effort to find anything to hurt Mr. Clinton
---Ignored state and federal wiretapping crimes against Linda Trip, perhaps protecting her from them
---Wired a "friend" to get incriminating seksual* evidence, like a sleazeball divorce lawyer.
---Conspired with Jones' lawyers and anti-Clinton groups (even before he was appointed!) to ambush and entrap the President in his deposition
---Broken the sacrosanct attorney/client privilege by forcing Clinton?s lawyers to testify. Then threatened Hubbell's lawyers with prosecution for doing their job
---Helped jail Susan McDougal for years and trumping up tax charges against Web Hubbel to force them to incriminate Clinton, even if it was a lie; Maliciously prosecuting Julie Steele because of her inconvenient story
---Bullied and threatened prosecutors in Arkansas to prevent any prosecution of David Hale (the only real witness against Clinton's friends in Ark) for his many crimes; Ignored evidence that he might be lying to save himself + that he'd been paid off.
---Cruelly forced a mother to testify for days about her promiscuous daughter's seksual* affairs
Intimidated, falsely imprisoned, + prevented Monica Lewinsky from calling her lawyer when there was no real crime
---Criminalized a simple consensual affair, something that should send chills down the spine of every American: "He who is without sin...."
---Actually suggested that Clinton's trying to prevent his lawyers or the Secret Service from testifying (or anything that challenges his authority) is an impeachable offense.,
---Blithely ground the American government to a virtual halt (while India + Pakistan where playing chicken with nukes, the President's secretary spent a week in grand juries),
---Prepared not a report to Congress, but a salacious character-assassinating argument with conclusions + recommendations (surprise: Clinton should be impeached)
---Acted with an arrogance, abusiveness, carelessness, obsessive zeal, and cruelty unseen since Joseph McCarthy

Even a few of these abuses would warrant dismissal, taken together we believe Kenneth Starr should go to jail. At any rate, it is long past time to FIRE HIM. He's accomplished his mission: to damage Mr. Clinton- not by any real crimes, but with trash. The very idea of a permanent special prosecutor- endlessly hounding the President even as he's employed by him, is monstrous. You made a grievous mistake in authorizing Starr's inquisition on the Lewinsky affair, Ms. Attorney General. It's time to rectify it.

END GAME

The right wing have tried to depose the twice-elected President while Congress was subsumed into the trash of modern day Jerry Springer America. The Republicans turned Impeachment into a perverse game show: Tie up the country, flout the Constitution, waste months of the the WORLD's time + energy. SURE. Who's going to stop us? YOU: the voters. Remember this on election day in 2000 or 2008 and never give the Republicans the power to do this damage again. Expect more trash allegations! The Haters are too close to give up. Contact the Senate Repubs (list below). FAX THEM. Calls are taken by low staffers- paper may find it's way back to the Senator.

Much depends on Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott. He's a Hater, but he's been stunned by the mass public disapproval, like the rest of the Repubs: CONTACT HIM (and your rep- esp. if Repub) + SCREAM! (202-224-6253, fax-202-224-9450, MS Dist. 601-965-4644, x-601-965-4007, senatorlott@lott.senate.gov) E-mail LOTT: Senate Majority Leader Former exterminator Tom Delay TX (House maj. whip) has been desperately lobbying the Senate to NOT make a censure deal. The most obsessive Hater (with Rep. Bob Barr), he browbeat + bullied the House Repubs into voting for impeachment. (see this George) Tell him what you think. 202-225-5951, x202-225-5241, 281-240-3700

BARR'S BANISHED BABY- Larry Flynt's latest outing has been of Manager (prosecutor) Bob Barr, rabid Hater and anti-abortion speaker, whose 2nd wife signed an affidavit that Barr had driven her to and paid for an abortion, then lied about it and his extramaritial affairs in court divorce proceedings. Is there no limit to the shamelessness of these hypodulterer Repubs? We have to listen to him attack the President's morals? Next pin up: Lott?

NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS New Speaker Dennis Hastert, 6 term Rep from far west suburbs of Chicago, is another hard-right evangelical Christian, and Delay's right hand man - He just seems friendlier.


LETTERS To CONGRESS Cut + Paste anything to send + alter it to make it yours

IS THERE ONE REPUBLICAN SENATOR WITH THE COURAGE TO DECLARE THEY WILL VOTE TO AQUIT?????

Dear Senators, Feb 6
As this shabby and shameful trial dribbles to a close, we urge that you consider the lasting verdict of history (which will already judge you harshly) and vote NOT to REMOVE the President and, as well NOT make some extra-legal extra-Constitutional extra-stupid finding of "fact". Apart from conferring on you the power of an actual criminal jury, which you aren't, there are no "facts" that have been definatively proved - Mr. Clinton's perjury remains unproven and his "obstruction of justice" accusation was a shameful abuse of the statute. At bottom is the vicious unfairness of ambushing Mr. Clinton with questions about his legal private conduct in a deposition about another matter: the contemptible criminalization of an affair that should have outraged you enough to throw this case out off the bat. You have weakened and damaged the Constitution with this trial and it's time to think about what will happen when there's a Republican in the White House, if the American people ever forgive you for so cavalierly flouting their will and electoral judgment. Goodbye.

Dear Senators, Jan 14, 1999
As the Trial of the President by the House begins, we urge you to see this case as what it is: a partisan, vindictive turkey. Don't grace it with the respect inherent in this weighty process. Just because the reckless, jealous House majority voted to impeach, you have NO RESPONSIBILITY or OBLIGATION to allow this process to continue. On the contrary, you have an absolute obligation- if you believe the charges are specious and unwarranted, to STOP it at your first opportunity. And they are: "High" crimes means in old English, crimes against the crown (the State), in the exercise of his authority.* Mr. Clinton has committed no crimes against the state. None. He naturally tried to hide an illicit relationship, and even if you think he did commit some offenses (never normally prosecuted), they are NOT impeachable or removable offenses.
On the other hand, the House has committed crimes against the Constitution, in this cheap political indictment- the criminalization of a simple sexual affair by entrapment, as the culmination of a 6 year jihad against Mr. Clinton, and you are by entertaining it. If you approve witnesses, this will become a circus that will stain the Senate for years. If illicit affairs are the basis for removal from office, 80% of Congress could be removed; if subject to a 5 year $50 million investigation by a political enemy, 96% of you could be removed.
Think about this, as you debate your obligations in this pitiful farce, as the Constitution and Separation of Powers is day by day corrupted and worn down by the drip, drip of petty irrelevant trash. Think about the howls of agony of the Founders, if they could see how this vital but violent process is being abused for cheap partisan purpose with offenses so common 2 Republican speakers quit + didn't show up. Think about the criminal violation of privacy in releasing grand jury testimony and illegal tapes to the world on the Internet and what it augers for peoples' rights in a technologically pervasive century. Think about the disgust and rage of the voters (of which I have thousands of letters), which will be displayed against the Republicans in 2000. Think about your vulnerability and hypocrisy..... and duty. And come to your senses and STOP IT and ADJOURN.

* used by Bumpers in speech Jan 21

Dear Senator, Jan 13
Do the nation and the Congress a huge favor and vote to ADJOURN this outrageous impeachment. This mutant right-wing cockroach should be stepped on immediately, before it breeds and spreads it's partisan poison throughout the Senate. You are honoring and validating the specious Articles of Impeachment by continuing with this trial... and wounding the Constitution with every passing day.

Dear Senator, ...Jan 4
We encourage you to support the Gorton/Lieberman initiative to have a preliminary vote on the actual support for impeachment. It's the first whiff of sanity in this business and makes perfect sense: why put the country + the President through the agony of a trial when there is nowhere near the numbers to convict, but more essentially- this impeachment was a grievous Constitutional mistake. Clinton's "crimes" are not impeachable offenses, so his impeachment was not valid. It is your job, as the more mature and responsible body, to rectify such terrible mistakes. The fanatical Clinton haters will level a fresh battery of dubious unprovable trash allegations- you must rise above them. Sen. Hatch + other Republicans must purge the idea that there is any political advantage to trying and humiliating the President. What the Repub party has done so far in violating the Constitution, ignoring the will of the people, and subverting the separation of powers has caused resentment + distrust that you will pay for for many years. Please end this sorry spectacle and let the country get back to their lives. (Dec 30 letr-see MORE.)

Letter to Republicans- December 10 I can't believe you are so reckless and heedless that you would vote for conviction. THIS IS NOT A GAME. You are endangering the republic in your adolescent partisan game of chicken. You are NOT the minority party anymore- dedicated to bomb-throwing and destruction. Majority status carries with it a measure of responsibility, which you've shown none of. Is there no limit to your rank stinking hypocrisy? MOST of you (besides Rep. Hyde) have committed equal or greater offenses than Mr. Clinton, what gives you the right to pillory him and torture the country over this nonsense? Keep it up: come 2000, you will be the minority party again, because you've displayed how little you can be trusted with the reigns of power and how much contempt you have for the will of the American people. Your "Bills of Impeachment" are a sick pitiful joke. Obstruction of Justice? Abuse of Power? Over fudging the truth in a secret affair? Are you completely out of your mind? THESE ARE NOT IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The only abuse of power has been Starr's campaign of terror and your outrageous conduct. You will be judged by history as mean-spirited vindictive petty party hacks, willing to subvert the Constitution for nothing but partisan political advantage. Are there none of you with any sense of scale, proportion, decency, or courage to stand up and STOP THIS MADNESS.
Mike Snow

Letter to JudCom Repubs-Nov 20 At long last do the decent thing and kill this travesty of the Constitutional process. You have dragged the nation through the muck, embarrassed our country + the President in the eyes of the world, cheapened and degraded the solemn undertaking of impeachment (and made it more likely to be invoked over cheap political hatreds), and trashed the principle of Grand Jury secrecy on which our legal system is based. It's time for you to cease and desist. MORE LETTERS


MORE REASONS THIS IS AN UNFAIR INQUISITION

Release of Grand Jury testimony is unprecedented in American history: it is strictly secret and not even supposed to be used in the trial (leaking is a felony). It's only purpose is to see if there SHOULD be a trial- there is NO LAWYER allowed by any witness or defendant and they can ask anything- not necessarily about the alleged crimes. Because of this- in the hands of an unfair or vindictive prosecutor (Ken Starr), it has spectacular potential for abuse. (No grand juries have lasted YEARS) That's why it's supposed to be secret- because you can force exposure of embarrassing information and then use it to destroy ANYONE. Somehow Congress is immune from this law (but they've never flouted it before). Not only did they- a legal body, release it, but they put it on the Internet for every idiot in the world to read- the most intimate personal details of a person's life. This should chill the hearts of every American who cares about civil liberties and the Bill of Rights. It is violently unfair and inherently un-American and would be if they did it to any Republican.

Ken Starr and incredibly the Judiciary Committee have used Clinton's mild actions to DEFEND himself from this relentless assault as IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES- trying to keep the Secret Service from testifying or claiming executive privilege. As Jonathan Alter says, "These are the actions of a monarch": You have opposed my authority and so committed crimes. It's breathtaking in its arrogance and reveals the outrageous political slant of the Committee.

If these things can happen to the most powerful person in the world (sic), it could happen to anyone! This goes far beyond Mr.Clinton and his mistakes- it's a direct threat to our Constitutional system- if a leader can be railroaded out of office for such minor offenses in a mean spirited partisan hysteria.... something is broken. People's privacy is threatened from many quarters- only a thin layer of laws are keeping us from a frightening future where people can be smeared and crushed invisibly. This impeachment juggernaut BREACHES those layers and so endangers us all.

A 4 year and $56 million investigation found nothing in Whitewater, Travelgate, etc. but Congress has voted to open these subjects AGAIN, as well as ANYTHING else that could hurt Clinton.

Lastly contrast the gravity and obvious pain of the Watergate Judiciary Committee in taking the extreme step of impeachment ("the alternative to assassination", according to Ben Franklin), with this gleeful headlong rush to drum Mr. Clinton out of office. This is a most unjudicious Judicial Committee, a cripplingly conservative House, and maybe ... Senate.

HOW PROCESS WORKS
In Association with Amazon.com

SCHEDULE: Wed Jan 13: Motions; Jan 14-16: Prosecutors' case; Wed-Fri Jan 20-22, President's defence; Jan 23+25? Senators Questions; Jan 26, Motions to Dismiss + Hear Witnesses; Jan 28-Feb 4? Witness depositions; Arguments over testimony? Witness appearing vote? Actual Testimony? More Arguments? Final Arguments? Final vote + end of Trial- when hell freezes over

After the Judiciary Committee voted to recommend impeachment (majority), the full Congress voted to impeach (accuse) the President (majority). Then it got sent to the Senate, where a trial is conducted- presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, prosecuted by the House Judiciary Committee (Hyde + 12 other JudCom Repub "managers"), which explains their eagerness to hang Clinton, defended by his lawyers, and decided by a jury of all 100 Senators, who can ask only written questions, but make the rules. Clinton doesn't have to appear. The Senate can decide, at any time to simply quit (adjourn) by majority vote, which may yet happen if the leadership allows it + some Senate Republicans aren't the venal scum that the House ones were. After another 2-5 months they would vote (2/3 majority- 67 needed) whether to convict and remove Clinton from office. VP Gore can participate as President of the Senate and vote to break ties. The Senate would probably NEVER vote to convict, but in reality no human could withstand this torture and Clinton would, at some point, resign, which is what Republicans want: To overturn the results of the last full election and remove an overwhelmingly popular President. In other countries this is called a coup.... or treason.

BUT NOT BEFORE THE ENTIRE US GOVERNMENT IS PARALYZED FOR 6-12 MONTHS!!! (already 5) NOV ELECTIONS were crucial: although the Democrats won 5 seats, Republicans are still going full steam ahead in this idiotic inquisition; in fact they RACED to impeach him before the NEW CONGRESS came in- another unConstitutional act!!

SEND THEM A MESSAGE THAT THE POLITICS OF HATE +DESTRUCTION WON'T FLY ANYMORE: CONTACT CONGRESS REPUBLICANS AND TELL THEM TO: STOP THIS MADNESS
