Impeached Judge Lectures Darrell Issa on Ethics of Holder Contempt Vote (Video)
Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-FL), was impeached for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3 in 1988. He was then convicted in 1989 by the United States Senate, becoming the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate. Yesterday, Hastings lectured Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on the Holder contempt vote saying, “We’re getting ready to stain this institution,” by holding the vote.
Actually, Rep. Hastings, having an impeached federal judge sitting in Congress for twenty years is the real stain on Congress.
