Wexler Calls For Cheney Impeachment Hearings

Congressman Robert Wexler, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, is calling upon Congress to immediately schedule impeachment hearings for Vice President Richard Cheney.

Wexler - "For the sake of history, and in order to be faithful to our Constitutional obligations, the Judiciary Committee must immediately convene impeachment hearings to determine whether the official actions of Vice President Cheney constitute 'High Crimes and Misdemeanors' and require that he be impeached. Each day we fail to act is a validation of the misdeeds of the Vice President and damages the credibility of the Democratic Party."

The full text of the Letter:

As a person who supports holding this Administration accountable for their deceptive actions, you may be interested to know about the recent votes in the House regarding H.Res. 333, "Impeaching Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors."

I share your belief that Vice President Cheney must answer for his deceptive actions in office, particularly with regard to the preparations for the Iraq war and the revelation of the identity of covert agent Valerie Plame Wilson as part of political retribution against her husband. That is why I voted against the motion to table debate on H.Res. 333. Along with only 85 other Democrats, I opposed tabling the measure and supported beginning immediate debate and a vote on the Cheney impeachment resolution. The vote on tabling the Kucinich resolution was rejected, and the House subsequently voted to refer the matter to the Judiciary Committee.

Vice President Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration have demonstrated a consistent pattern of abusing the law and misleading Congress and the American people. We see the consequences of these actions abroad in Iraq and at home through the violations of our civil liberties. The American people are served well with a legitimate and thorough impeachment inquiry. I will urge the Judiciary Committee to schedule impeachment hearings immediately and not let this issue languish as it has over the last six months.
Only through hearings can we begin to correct the abuses of Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration; and, if it is determined in these hearings that Vice President Cheney has committed High Crimes and Misdemeanors, he should be impeached and removed from office. It is time for Congress to expose the multitude of misdeeds of the Administration, and I am hopeful that the Judiciary Committee will expeditiously begin an investigation of this matter.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns. I sincerely appreciate your input and hope that you will feel free to contact me anytime I may be of assistance to you.

With warm regards,

Congressman Robert Wexler

Rep. Wexler (D-FL) on Benefits of Cheney Impeachment

http://www.afterdowningstreet.org/?q=node/29347

I ADMIT MY PATIENCE HAS RUN OUT WITH THE “RUN-OFF-AT-THE-MOUTH CYBER CROWD” THAT HAS DIVIDED SO MANY ONLINE IMPEACHMENT MEET UP AND GOOGLE GROUPS.
THEY ARE A BUNCH OF SOPHOMORIC POMPOUS, INTELLECTUALLY PRETENTIOUS PONTIFICATING ASSES, WHO THOUGH THEY HAVE A PERFECT RIGHT TO EXERCISE THEIR FREE SPEECH, BRING NOTHING TO THE SOLUTIONS OF OUR NATIONAL PROBLEMS WITH THEIR VERBAL LINT AND SELF-INDULGENT BABBLINGS AND ATTEMPTS TO UTTER ANYTHING THAT THEY THINK IS HALF INTELLIGENT.
WHERE I COME FROM ½ IS 50% AND A FAILING GRADE!

THAT IS WHY I HAVE HAD TO SPEND SO MUCH TIME AND ENERGY IN CREATING THE NATIONAL ONLINE STRUCTURE FOR “THE: IT’S THE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE STUPID!” CAMPAIGN. WORKING AROUND THESE SELF-APPOINTED/ANNOINTED “EXPERTS” HAS BEEN A PAIN WHERE THE SUN DOESN’T SHINE, SAVE IN A NUDIST COLONY.

THE FOLLOWING IS NOTHING SHORT OF A FORMULA FOR SURRENDER……

THIS TYPE OF CRAP BEING CIRCULATED TODAY!

Everyone Stop, Take A Deep Breathe and Regain Rationality

by nrafter530, Thu Dec 13, 2007 at 10:35:10 AM EST

About a year ago, shortly after Democrats won Congress, I told a friend of mine that the right wing were the most irrational people on the face on the earth. I said they were the only ones willing to actually kill people to prove political points.

My friend's response to me; wait till your liberal base starts talking when Pelosi is speaker. He was right. I am astonish, sometimes ashamed at the irrational attitude that envelopes here. Everyone needs to calm the f*ck down. We are in a political hostage situation and I thank God none of you are hostage negotiators. I certaintly wouldn't want to be a hostage in a situation where you are.

Believe me, no one wants to see Bush dragged in chains before the ICJ for war crimes than I do, but if our only desire is to stick it to George W. Bush, then we're as wrong as he is. He's a madman, but he's a madman with power. I know it's hard to accept, but it is.

Let's look at options.

We could impeach him, but see our efforts to remove him fail in the Senate and have the MSM announce "Democrats Fail"

We could give him a bill that forces withdrawal and watch it get vetoed and watch our efforts to override the veto fail and against hear the MSM announce "Democrats Fail"

We could give him the same bill over and over again and watch option 2 occur over and over again.

We could not give him any funding bill and wade in uncharted waters, watch the Pentagon further cut veterans health care, funding for equipment, and other things necessary for our troops as he will no doubt keep them in the middle of the Iraqi Civil War and watch the MSM announce "Democrats cut funding for troops" While I think this is the best option, we will no doubt spend the next year defending our decision to do it against inevitable attacks from the right and pro-military center who will see this option as Democrats caring more about beating the President than making sure our troops have what they need and as of yet, haven't gotten even with Republican funding bills...something we promised to do last year.

We may win, but the odds are against us. Much like the Gingrich vs. Clinton budget battle in 1995 where the people wanted spending to be curtailed, but not if it meant their kids can't go to the Statue of Liberty or government employees are getting laid off, people want this war to end, but not if it means the already dismal treatment of soldiers will get worse.

Unless we have 50-60 Republicans backing us, the war WILL NOT end. We can cut funding, impeach, make points that will make us all happy because we beat the President, but the war will continue.

Face it, this is a hostage situation and the President is holding the troops hostage. The first thing you do as a hostage negotiator is admit the power lies with the hostage taker. you can have all the guns and tanks and helicopters in the world, but at that moment, the hostage taker has the power and you negotiate to take that power away.

You don't send in an army of armed officers into the building! Like I said in a comment earlier, the President has a gun to the head of our troops and is threatening to shoot if Nancy Pelosi takes one step closer, and we're mad she's not sending in the NYPD screaming and wielding rifles.

And because she's not, we're giving up and handing the country back OVER to the hostage takers? Beating madmen with power takes time, takes patience, and means we're going to lose, sometimes fairly often.

You express a lot of my thoughts (none / 0)

In one more year Bush will be gain, and if Democrats stay sane, and focused we will have expanded majorities in the House and Senate and a Democratic President.

The nightmare will be over.

Or some among us can throw temper tantrums because they are not getting instant gratification and we can simply hold on to our narrow margins in Congress and hand the White House back to the wing nuts.

THANK YOU (none / 0)

This is EXACTLY the case.

The Democrats are between Scylla and Charibidis. Do they want to get eaten by a monster or destroyed by a whirlpool?

THERE ARE NO GOOD OPTIONS.

Reid and Pelosi are doing the best they can.

The ONLY WAY OUT - the ONLY WAY OUT - is the election of a Democratic POTUS and an increase in the number of Democratic Senators. We also need a Democratic VP to raise the nuclear option. The Repukeliscum in the Senate are OUT OF CONTROL, and they must be bludgeoned into submission. This will require a change in the filibuster rules. The filibuster is being abused BIGTIME, and we must change the rules to ensure that the REPUKELISCUM behave responsibly.

I strongly disagree. We must IMPEACH to prevent the highly dangerous precedent that the next administration will inherit the lawless abuse of power and destruction of the Constitution perpetrated by Bush and Cheney. IMPEACHMENT IS NOT ABOUT PARTISANSHIP. IT IS ABOUT SAVING THIS COUNTRY!
