Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month.

We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If everyone who visited our website in the next week donated just $15, we would cover all of our operating costs for the year. We can't do it without you. Please donate today. It takes just a couple of minutes to do your part to make sure Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else.

The House Judiciary Committee begins considering today whether there is enough evidence to start an impeachment investigation of President Clinton. If the committee decides an impeachment inquiry is warranted, it will forward its recommendation to the full House for a vote later this week. Democrats want limits placed on the investigation, but Republicans are expected to prevail in their bid for an open-ended impeachment. Meanwhile, there are several close Congressional races around the country.
