Impeachment Is Within Our Reach. Dennis Has Rolled The Table Tonight.
With The Kucinich Actions Of This Day And With The Unraveling Of The Bush Administration And The Initiation Of Several Hearings And Subpoena Fights Being Conducted By The House Judiciary Committee It Is Time To Flood The Switch Boards, Fill The Email Boxes, heat up the fax machines of the House judiciary committee members and then every other member of the house to move on the Impeachment of George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney, delivering the message that those who do fulfill their duty and their oath will receive our support and those who do not will earn our opposition in their reelection campaigns, (all Democrats and Republicans alike).

Representative Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, just finished reading on the House floor a 35-count impeachment resolution against President George W. Bush. Kucinich's lengthy and detailed indictment of this wayward president is the most thorough and powerful case made to date. He outlined a litany of high crimes and misdemeanors and showed without a shadow of a doubt that George W. Bush deserves to be impeached and removed from office. Kucinich made clear that Bush has violated his oath of office and his Constitutional duty that the laws be "faithfully executed."
Kucinich's impeachment resolution comes after the shocking revelations contained in the 107-page Senate Intelligence Committee's report that confirmed, once and for all, (and with the vote of two Republican Senators), that President Bush lied the American people into war. There can be no more dire and serious offense than a president lying to his fellow Americans on issues of war and peace. Bush should be impeached forthwith. The House Judiciary Committee should vote on the Kucinich resolution and split it up into Articles of Impeachment. All the committee needs is one Article to impeach Bush, Kucinich has provided dozens of potential Articles.
I've agreed all along with the Center for Constitutional Rights and other groups on the need to impeach Bush. It is not a "political" issue; it is a Constitutional issue. He must be impeached and removed from office even if the proceedings don't start until January. The Democrats chickened out on impeachment when they took the Congress in January 2007. That was the most disillusioning decision of the 110th Congress -- taking impeachment "off the table." It was also giving the Congress's consent to Bush's behavior.
People will scream about how impeachment might backfire on the election of 2008. But that was never the issue. The president is guilty of grave crimes against the republic and should be held accountable. He does not have to be found guilty in a court of law; impeachment has a different standard. Bush has committed crimes against the nation. There are 4,100 dead Americans and 500,000 to 1 million dead Iraqis as a result of his lies and deceit. The Scott McClellan book just drives home everything the Intelligence Committee uncovered. It is time for the truth! If Bush can keep the prospect of attacking Iran "on the table," then the Congress should keep impeachment on the table too.
Thank you Dennis Kucinich.
You once again demonstrated that you are the most courageous and principled member of Congress.
Kucinich read into the Congressional Record a litany of alleged illegal and improper acts on the part of the president, The Politico reported.
Kucinich has previously introduced articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney. That resolution has been referred to the House Judiciary Committee, which has taken no action on it, Politico said.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and other leading House Democrats have said Congress will not pursue impeachment of Bush. During the 2006 election campaign, Pelosi told CBS' "60 Minutes" impeachment was "off the table."
Kucinich and others in Congress -- including Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla. -- have pressed for impeachment of Bush and Cheney, accusing the administration of multiple offenses, including lying to Congress and the public about its reasons for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
Approximately 7:50 EST tonight Rep. Dennis Kucinich was reading 35 articles of impeachmentNov. 6, 2007, articles of impeachment against Cheney, C-Span did what C-span never does: it did not re-run it. That was how they buried it, nothing in the newspaper the next day, so it never happened. This time we call C-span to demand they re-run this to death like they do everything not nearly as interesting. C-Span contact page. against George Bush. The last time he did this on
C-span is a private corporation, so it pretty much does what it wants, but since the airwaves are, you know, public property and all, what the public can do is revoke their broadcast license. As treasonous collaborators with the Bush-Cheney Neo-Con cabal.
