Impeachable Logic

The article focuses on the administrations of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. The scandal in the Bush White House, concerning who leaked Valerie Plame's identity, is being investigated by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald. There is speculation that Fitzgerald will bring indictments for perjury and obstruction of justice against Karl Rove. Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison appears to have changed her views on perjury since the Clinton administration left office. Conservatives do not want to compare the alleged perjury of President Bush's aides to Bill Clinton's perjury. "Weekly Standard" Editor William Kristol, who supported an impeachment in the Clinton White House, argues that the two incidents of perjury are very different.
