Ex-House member: Impeach President Bush07/18/07 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good afternoon. Welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today we'll speak with former congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman, who is calling for the impeachment of President Bush.
But first, some listener comments about yesterday's interview with the Rev. Stephen Sizer. He's the Anglican vicar who authored several books on the nexus between Christians who believe that the end times are near and Conservative Israelis.
Here's an update from the Associated Press:
Christian Zionists lobby Congress today WASHINGTON (AP) - Thousands of members of Christians United for Israel are heading to Capitol Hill today to lobby Congress on behalf of the Jewish state. The group's founder, the Reverend John Hagee (HAYG'-ee), declared last night, "We support Israel because we are Bible-believing Christians," and said the world needs to see that "the sleeping giant of Christian Zionism has awakened." At "A Night to Honor Israel" banquet last night, the conservative Christian leader called on President Bush to move the U-S embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Hagee also called for American divestment from Iran, which he compared to Nazi Germany as a threat to the Jewish people. Hagee said Mideast tensions shouldn't be blamed on Israel, but on Islamic radicals and moderate Muslims who won't condemn them.
Among those who addressed the Christian Zionism dinner last night was former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
Weâ€™re joined now by former Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman
She is co-author with Cynthia L. Cooper of the book "The Impeachment of George W. Bush: A Practical Guide for Concerned Citizens". Holtzman, four-term Congresswoman from New York, was a prominent member of the Judiciary Committee during Nixon's impeachment and is a leading authority on the practical and legal dimensions of impeaching a president or other senior adminstration officials.
