Impeach Bush, Cheney, Gonzales and rest of the garbage pack regime

The push for impeachment continues to gather steam. Congressman Jay Inslee of Washington announced he would introduce a resolution calling on the House Judiciary Committee to investigate whether Alberto Gonzales should be impeached.

This follows on the heels of an editorial in the New York Times suggesting impeachment for Gonzales if a special prosecutor isn't appointed to investigate his crimes.

Former Reagan official Bruce Fein is making the talk show rounds to argue that Gonzales, Cheney, and Bush should all be impeached.

And even Nancy Pelosi admitted today that if she were a member of the House Democratic caucus, rather than its leader...well, she'd probably be pushing for impeachment too.
Bedtime for Gonzo?

The impeachment resolution backed by Rep. Inslee may succeed. Inslee, a former prosecutor, is on good terms with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and is considered a moderate in Congress.

And the first six cosponsors of the resolution (there are a total of fourteen so far) are also former prosecutors. John Nichols explains why he thinks Inslee may be precisely the right member of the House to get the ball rolling.

David Swanson sounds a somewhat more skeptical note, pointing out that six months ago Inslee actually lobbied against an impeachment resolution in the state legislature, but David agrees that "if the Democratic leadership allows Gonzales to be impeached, or is forced to see it happen, we may jump a big step closer to impeaching Cheney, whether Nancy Pelosi intended that to be the result or not."

However, Inslee may wait until after the summer recess to introduce his resolution, and there's been some speculation that Bush may try to make a recess appointment of an new Attorney General while Congress is out of session.

We need to push for Gonzales to be impeached as quickly as possible while insisting that the House also begin impeachment proceedings against Dick Cheney.To move the process forward, please ask your representative in Congress to impeach Gonzales, and then call them
at (202) 224-3121 and ask them not to take the month of August off for a vacation.

There is urgent business at hand that we elected these Congress Members to do. Their vacations can wait. Putting a halt to the destruction and restoring the rule of law cannot. The people of Iraq cannot expect any summer vacation. Nor can the U.S. troops occupying their country.

Nor can the people of New Orleans STILL without homes.

August should be a time for Congress to reclaim some measure of respect from the American people by accomplishing something that cannot be vetoed or signing statemented: a speedy Gonzales impeachment.Then reward yourself by watching Jon Stewart summit Gonzo's Bullshit Mountain.

Don't Forget about Dick

As Congress Members awaken to the fact that impeachment is all they have left and that the public demands it, let's make sure there is no doubt about whom we really want impeached.

Dick Cheney is the driving force behind the crimes of the past six years and impeachment without him would be a disgrace.

Fortunately the trail of evidence leads inexorably from Gonzales to Cheney.

According to The New York Times, Dick Cheney sent Mr. Gonzales and another official to Mr. Ashcroft's hospital room to get him to approve the wiretapping. Interviewed on Larry King Live this evening, Cheney claimed that he "doesn't recall" whether he was the one who sent Gonzales to the ailing Ashcroft's bedside to strong arm him into reauthorizing the illegal NSA spying program.

Ask your Congress Member to support impeachment proceedings against Cheney.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich wants to put the name of everyone who supports Dick Cheney's impeachment in the Congressional Record--the official record of the proceedings and debates of the U.S. Congress.

It is published daily when Congress is in session and is fully searchable. Every day that Congress is in session, Rep. Kucinich will submit 5 single-spaced pages of names with states, which is the daily limit under House rules.

Over 80 cities and towns have now passed resolutions calling for the impeachment of Cheney and Bush.

Most of these resolutions detail a long list of crimes and abuses. And taking a cue from Rep. Inslee's short and sweet Gonzales impeachment resolution, we now propose making it very fast and easy for your city or town government.

Ask them to vote Yes or No on this resolution:

Resolved: That the Committee on the Judiciary shall investigate fully whether sufficient grounds exist for the House of Representatives to impeach Richard Cheney for high crimes and misdemeanors.
