Impeach Bush And Cheney Now

Tell Congress To Act On Impeachment Of Bush And Cheney Without Further Delay:

On June 9, 2008, a day that will live in valor, Dennis Kucinich introduced articles of impeachment against George W. Bush, just as he had done against Richard B. Cheney late last year.

It was truly stunning to hear him recite all the undisputed evidence against Bush himself, which took 4 hours on the House floor.
Even more stunning is the fact that the House at large has still taken no action to actually stand up for itself as a co-equal branch of our government.

Nixon was threatened with impeachment in large part for defying subpoenas. The Cheney/Bush administration has gone even further than that, displaying total contempt for congressional oversight, even to the point of instructing all executive branch former employees to refuse to testify themselves. Only impeachment can correct this outrage, which makes a arrogant mockery of the balance of Constitutional powers. And that is just ONE of the 35 well-founded grounds for immediate hearings.

Congress must act now, or Congress has reduced itself to a ceremonial role under whatever despot may occupy the White House in the future.
