A Historic Week In More Ways Than One w/guest Fmr Watergate era Cong. Elizabeth Holtzman
Listen now
For only the fourth time in American history, impeachment hearings have begun. On this week's episode, congressional trailblazer Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY) joins Tara to discuss her experience as a Judiciary Committee member during Watergate and the comparisons to Trump's impeachment hearings. Holtzman brings a candid, first hand, perspective to how Democrats and the Republicans should be handling Trump's abuse of power. She's also written several books including the "Case for Impeaching Trump." A self–proclaimed political outsider, Holtzman defeated a 50–year House veteran and powerful chairman to win a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives as the youngest female member of Congress at the time. During her four terms in the House, Holtzman earned national prominence during the Richard M. Nixon impeachment inquiry and as a cofounder of the Congressional Caucus on Women’s Issues. Tara gives her take on the opening impeachment hearings and discusses her trip to Montgomery, Alabama where she witnessed the historic swearing in of the first African American mayor of the city known as the "cradle of the Confederacy and the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement."
