Sept. 20, 2012 (EIRNS)—This release was issued today by the Lyndon LaRouche Political Action Committee.

Congressman Walter B. Jones (R-N.C.) has announced that he will hold a press conference at 10:00 A.M., Sept. 21, in Rayburn B-318, to discuss House Concurrent Resolution 107. Rep. Jones will be joined by a group of senior retired military officials, constitutional lawyers, and congressional co-sponsors, to discuss H.C.R. 107 (the bill to send an impeachment warning to Obama), which currently has 11 co-sponsors.
