Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. 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.

Former presidents and one-time political opponents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford have added their voices to the censure vote, proposing in today’s New York Times a bipartisan censure resolution which would be voted by the Senate and accepted by Clinton.

At issue is whether a prolonged trial of Clinton is warranted in the face of sustained public support for the president, and with the strong likelihood at least for now that Republicans will not muster the necessary votes for a conviction. Meanwhile, the team that will prosecute Clinton has already been appointed, and it is composed of 13 Republicans from the House Judiciary Committee, with its chairman, Henry Hyde, at the helm.

Tape:

  • Interviews with Congress Members.

Guests:

  • Damon Chapey, reporter for Roll Call.
  • Maura Kealey, legislative representative for Public Citizen, a watchdog of the health industry.
