WASHINGTON — Congress should impeach Bill Clinton because resignation is too good for a president who "mocked, demeaned, belittled and lied" to America, Christian Coalition founder Pat Robertson said Friday.
"While resignation might be easier for America, it's not best for America," Robertson told 3,000 religious activists. Some waved signs that read, "Impeach Clinton."
In scolding tones, Robertson opened the two-day Christian Coalition conference by accusing Clinton of turning the Oval Office into a "playpen for the sexual freedom of the poster child of the 1960s." He also called Clinton a "debauched, debased and defamed" leader.
In words of warning to Republicans who might be tempted to move cautiously toward impeachment, he criticized politicians who "are sitting in foxholes of political safety, surrounding themselves in polls and commentaries."
