Kucinich on the Early Show - "Republicans didn't call my bluff"...

Submitted by tnjp on November 7, 2007 - 5:35pm.

On Tues. Nov. 6th 2007 Congressman Dennis Kucinich introduced Articles of Impeachment against Dick Cheney via a "special privilege" parliamentary maneuver. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer moved to table (kill) the resolution but was out maneuvered by the Republicans and lost the motion to table. Hoyer then moved for referral to the Judiciary Committee, which succeeded.

In this video, Kucinich reads the articles of impeachment on the House floor. The bill, originally HR333, is now referred to as H RES 799 (HR799).

Dennis Kucinch's HR333 Articles of Impeachment against Cheney have been renamed to H Res 799 (HR799,HR 799, HRES799, H RES 799)...

BTW, you guessed it, our own Congressman Allen Boyd is not on board for impeaching Cheney. Check the roll call vote. He voted to table (kill) Kucinich's resolution to impeach Cheney.

It's Time to Impeach Cheney
By Congressman Dennis Kucinich, special to www.ImpeachCheney.org

As a member of Congress, I have sworn an oath to defend the Constitution and the laws of our nation, and I have pledged to represent the views of my constituents and of all Americans.

That’s why I feel both duty and sorrow in pursuing the path of impeachment against Vice President Richard B. Cheney.

While the impeachment movement has generated intensely strong sentiment and activism, there have been only two polls published on the question of impeaching Vice President Cheney. In a national poll, 54 percent of Americans favored impeachment. In one state poll, 64 percent of Vermonters favored impeaching the Vice President.

Twenty-one of my colleagues have heeded the public demand and signed on as cosponsors of my resolution, H Res 333. Others in the Congress have claimed they have more important priorities, but have told their constituents they will keep their views in mind if the matter ever comes up for a vote.

Well, the issue is coming up for a vote this week on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, and the “distraction” will require members to balance their priorities between Constitutionally proscribed justice and recourse and the alternative: Constitutional abuse and dictatorial power...

SEPTEMBER 15: 100,000 MARCH FOR IMPEACHMENT, AGAINST THE WAR
Keep the pressure on! Write a letter to Congress demanding impeachment!

On Saturday, nearly 100,000 people from all walks of life, young and old, of all nationalities and creeds, marched together, united by a single purpose, determined to end the war. The impeachment movement was a huge part of this demonstration and the call for impeachment resounded from the White House to the Capitol. People took buses, trains, vans, and planes from all over the country to make it to Washington DC for the March, and it was reflected in the massive turnout.

The protest included one of the anti-war movement's largest collective acts of civil disobedience. Around 5,000 people laid down in mass as part of a dramatic die-in at the foot of the Capitol steps to symbolize all those lives that have been lost in this destructive war. Another two hundred were arrested when they tried to take an anti-war message to the Congress and were stopped by riot police...

Since Sunday, when I announced that I am drafting two censure proposals condemning the President, Vice President, and the administration for their misguided actions in Iraq and for their disregard for the rule of law, I've received thousands of emails and phone calls from people in Wisconsin and around the country. I've also read and watched what 'pundits' and the 'D.C consultant class' have had to say about my proposals. And, while it's really no surprise, the two couldn't be farther away from one another.

I've heard some pundits characterize censure as 'piling on' an unpopular president that could, in the end, hurt Democrats in 2008. Some have said it's a 'big tactical mistake. I could go on, but I'm sure you get the point...
