Justice and History Catch Up With Clinton

(HERNDON, VA)...Landmark Legal Foundation today issued the following statement by Landmark President Mark R. Levin concerning the U.S. Supreme Court's suspension of former President Bill Clinton's right to practice law before the nation’s highest Court. In August, 1998, in an article in the Washington Times Landmark was the first to call publicly for Mr. Clinton to be held in contempt of court for false statements he made before Federal District Judge Susan Webber Wright in a deposition in the Paula Jones lawsuit. On September 2, 1998, Landmark filed a formal request with Judge Wright to hold former President Clinton in contempt. Judge Wright held the former president in contempt in April, 1999, and, on his final full day in office, January 19, 2001, Clinton accepted a five-year suspension in his license to practice law in Arkansas in exchange for Independent Counsel Robert Ray dropping the investigation into the Monica Lewinsky case.

"It was only a matter of time before justice and history would catch up with Clinton. Now it appears that the Supreme Court will do what the Senate and Independent Counsel Robert Ray refused to do – uphold the law," said Mark R. Levin, president of Landmark Legal Foundation.

Founded in 1976, Landmark Legal Foundation has offices in Kansas City, MO, and Herndon, VA.
