  •  In addition, it was lying to Kerry's committee (3+ / 0-)

    That resulted in people like Oliver North and Eliot Abrahms being indicted. Kerry himself was excluded from the Iran/Contra investigation - even though it was his investigation that fleshed out the "Contra" side of the Iran/Contra scandal.

    I suspect that the reason the country did not impeach Bush when the report came out (or when other parts of Iran/Contra came out) was that it (like all W's evil) meant accepting that America did something evil in the world. Nixon was impeached for Watergate and Clinton for personal reasons - neither of which reflected on America in the world. It clearly was not that Kerry was lax in trying to get it out.

    In addition to the fact that it was released in 1989, it seems hard to understand how the Republicans could effectively use suggestions that Clinton knew and ignored a despicable Reagan/Bush illegal action.

    •  Impeachemts are only for Democrats. (0+ / 0-)

      Republicans earn only lame excuses and a shiny pair of roller-skates.

      This is what happens when Democrats put winning ahead of accountability. -rolandzebub
