Sen. Reid Struggles for Reason to Oppose Impeachment
By David Swanson
Christiane Brown (KJFK, Reno) interviews Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in this audio clip from last week and presses him on why he admits impeachable offenses have been commited but opposes impeachment. Reid says that impeaching Bush would just give you Cheney, but Brown points out that Cheney can be impeached too (in fact, the only impeachment bill in Congress right now is to impeach Cheney). Reid says there's not enough time, but Brown points out how swift past impeachments have been. Reid struggles and fails to find a coherent explanation. LISTEN TO THE CLIP.
