Rep. Dennis Kucinich Introduces Article Of Impeachment Against Vice President Cheney

After a series of delays, Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), a candidate for president in 2008, announced a series of charges against Vice President Dick Cheney in Washington, DC, late in the day. Kucinich alleged that the Vice President had committed a series of impeachable offenses, and he was therefore introducing Articles of Impeachment against Cheney in the Congress today.    The Raw Story

The Ohio Congressman, who is running for president for the second time, noted three charges in his Articles of Impeachment, which were submitted as House Resolution 333. The first concerned manipulation of intelligence about Iraq's threat to the US. The second concerned manipulation of intelligence on the Iraq-Al-Qaida relationship. The last concerned what he called having "openly threatened aggression against the Republican of Iran."

          When asked why he wasn't going after  Resident Bush, Kucinich responded:

"There is a very practical reason - each and every charge relates to Vice President Cheney's conduct or misconduct in office. It is very important that we start with Mr. Cheney because if we were to start with the President, Mr. Cheney would then become president. We'd have to go through the constitutional agony of impeaching two presidents consecutively."                                                                                          

     This will be an interesting action since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that, "And frankly, for impeachment, George W. Bush is just not worth it. We have great work to do for the American people."  Source

     Maybe one or two of the top polling services should poll the American people to see if impeachment would be some of the work for the American people that Pelosi is concerned about.

   I would vote to impeach, but we already know that. What about you?
