Thirty Days--Impeach Cheney

Dennis Kucinich is sponsoring a bill:
House Resolution (H. Res.) 333 Impeaching Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.

Status: referred to House subcommittee, referred to the Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties.

Summary: Impeaches Richard B. Cheney, etc as above

Sets forth articles of impeachment stating that Vice Pres. Cheney:1. has purposely manipulated the intelligence process ot deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States about a thret of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, and about an alleged relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda, to justify the use of the U.S. Armed Forces against Iraq in a manner damaging to U.S. national security interests; and 2 has openly threatened aggression against Iran absent any real threat to the United States, and has done so with the U.S. proven capability to carry out such threats, thus undermining U.S. national security.
This is a brilliant strategy because in impeaching only Cheney instead of Bush and Cheney, the democrats avoid a total power grab putting Nancy Pelosi in the white house. There is another bill to censure Bush--more on that later. I've written my representative Jim Matheson asking him to co-sponsor the bill. If you decide to write to your representative, be sure to say H.Res 333 and not HR 333 because HR is something else. A fantastic website I've discovered at the Library of Congress makes it easy to search bills by subject, author etc.
