Wants Clinton removed from office 112898 - The Augusta Chronicle



I've listened to Ken Starr's testimony to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. Again and again Mr. Starr paints a picture of a man (President Bill Clinton) intent on subverting the law. Not only is it plain to see that the president lied under oath, he also suborned perjury and obstructed justice. He did this not only in the Monica Lewinsky affair but throughout Mr. Starr's investigation of Whitewater and other matters. This from the man who promised us the most ethical administration in history.

Why, after all this evidence, is there not a hue and cry for the president's resignation? Why is there no cry for his removal from office? Can we be so selfish that the only thing we think of is our pocketbook? Have the American people fallen this low? No one is disputing this president has done great things for our country. He has also broken its laws -- laws he is sworn to uphold.

We must, as a people with one voice, demand Congress do its duty and remove William Jefferson Clinton from office. The president must be liable to the same laws as the rest of us. No one, especially someone with that much power, can be above the law.
