they’re talking impeachment…finally!


Finally. Finally! Congress just might be doing something about Cheney – and I couldn’t be more supportive. We’ve fought Dick Cheney as he misled us into an unjust war, trashed our mostbasic constitutional rights, and brandished executive privilege as if it were a hall pass for the last six years.Finally, we’re talking about impeachment, people. This is it – Congress is following through. Don’t let them down. Sign on. Click here or read more below.

For six long years, Vice President Dick Cheney has subverted long-standing protocols and laws in exercising his power. Recent polls indicate that for the first time, a majority of the American people want to see Cheney impeached — but until recently, Congress lacked the courage to act. Now, however, the movement to impeach Cheney is picking up speed. More than a dozen members of the House of Representatives have now signed on as co-sponsors of H. Res. 333, “Impeaching Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors.” The bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee, but unfortunately won’t pass out of that committee until there is broad and overwhelming public support for the bill’s goals. That’s where we come in. Ask your representative to sign on as a co-sponsor of H.Res. 333.

Cheney was instrumental in the effort to “out” covert CIA agent Valerie Plame in a cheap act of political retribution against her husband, Joe Wilson, an outspoken Bush critic. He pressured our intelligence agencies, deceived Congress and then misled the nation into invading Iraq based on a false threat of weapons of mass destruction. He continues to imply a link between Iraq and the Sept. 11th hijackers — even though this claim has been disproved time and time again. If the checks and balances inherent to our constitutional form of government are to mean anything at all, Congress must take action against an executive branch official who has committed such grave misdeeds. Imagine how much damage Cheney can do if left in office another 18 months.

The Time For Accountability is NOW

Dick Cheney’s offenses against the nation unquestionably rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors spelled out in our Constitution. Tell Congress — it’s time for impeachment proceedings to begin.

  1. Sorry to hear that the Senate and Congress are going to waste precious time, when they can be doing more productive things in the next 18 months.

    Agree that Cheney is not doing what a Vice President of the United States should be doing. And he is the Puppet Master of President Bush. But to impeach now would be truly a waste of time.

  2. This is all TALK. They have no intention of impeaching the bastards. If they really intended to impeach, HR 333 and others like HR 635 (over a year old!) would have come to the floor for a vote long ago.

  3. If we wish to impeach Bush or Cheney we must be willing to charge them with serious crimes. Things that ought to be crimes count for nothing at all. We must concentrate on crimes they actually committed. What may well stick are charges of war crimes or crimes against humanity. Other than that we don’t seem to have any criminal charges sufficient to obtain impeachment.
    I suppose that if we do convict them of crimes of war or the like that we would be somewhat compelled to turn them over to international courts for sentencing although they could count on pardons for punishment by the US government. The spectacle of a US President being hung by an international court may not be what we would like to see happen.
