CIC's Urgent Letter to Senate & the Latest Petitions
[The following was recently hand-delivered by Jack Clayton of CIC,
along with petitions, to all 100 Senators. Clayton and Scott Lauf have lead
delegations of CIC supporters on frequent visits to Senate offices for
the last few months].
February 4, 1999
Please accept with this letter a diskette containing over 15,000
petitions calling for the conviction and removal from office of
President Bill Clinton. These were collected in recent days from
citizens nationwide who have signed on at www.impeachclinton.org, our
popular internet web site which has received over a total of 15 million
hits. These petitions add to the 1.4 million we have already delivered
to Congress by me or Scott Lauf, our other spokesman.
On behalf of our supporters, we urge you to vote for conviction and
removal of William Jefferson Clinton. The evidence of Mr. Clinton
committing the criminal felonies of perjury and obstruction of justice
is overwhelming. In 1989 your esteemed legislative body convicted Judge
Walter Nixon for grand jury perjury --- one of the same exact charges
against Clinton! If you fail to convict the President on this charge
alone, you are telling all Americans that not only Mr. Clinton is above
the law, but so are you.
We implore you to ignore any motion or deal which calls for censure or a
"finding a fact." Such a move is clearly unconstitutional. Historical
precedent and the constitution itself clearly mandate that impeachment
trial should only end with a vote of conviction or acquittal.
We hope you take seriously your sworn oath to render "impartial"
justice. For if the American people wish to have any faith in our
system of government, they need to know that the U.S. Senate will not
cower from its duty.
