Thanks to everyone who attended our event The Bybee Question: Is Impeachment Appropriate? yesterday. A panel of legal experts and scholars convened at the National Press Club to discuss the potential impeachment of Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Jay Bybee for his role in authoring and authorizing torture memos during his tenure as head of the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel. If you missed the event, footage is available here.
AfterDowningStreet.org posted a great summary of the event, and both Harper’s Magazine and Think Progress provided coverage of yesterday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, “What Went Wrong: Torture and the Office of Legal Counsel in the Bush Administration” in addition to our event.
