Former Democratic U.S. Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman, who participated in impeachment hearings on President Nixon, will argue a case for the impeachment of President Bush in a lecture set for 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 8, in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall.
Holtzman's lecture is titled "George W. Bush: High Crimes and Misdemeanors?" She is the co-author, with Cynthia Cooper, of "The Impeachment of George W. Bush," which argues that Bush misled the country in pursuing the war in Iraq and engaged in other impeachable offenses.
Holtzman represented New York in Congress from 1973 to 1981 and was a member of the House Judiciary Committee during the impeachment of Nixon. She is a former Brooklyn district attorney and currently practices law in New York City.
The lecture is sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
