In the wake of Bush's commutation of Libby's prison sentence, talk of impeachment is gaining steam: an opinion poll says that nearly half of all Americans favor impeachment of Bush and more than half believe Cheney should be impeached as well. Bill Moyers gets perspective from constitutional scholar Bruce Fein, who wrote the first article of impeachment against Bill Clinton, and The Nation's John Nichols, author of The Genius of Impeachment: The Founder's Cure for Royalism.
In a previous film we reviewed the grounds for impeachment. This film goes a step further to discuss the philosophy, practicality and necessity of impeachment. I'm sure you will find the documentary informative and thought provoking.
