LETTER: Impeach both Bush and Cheney
August 14, 2007 6:00 AM

I am sick and tired of my Congress sitting on their hands and doing nothing about Bush and Cheney. They should get off their duffs and start impeachment proceedings now.

Yes, I am angry. Both of these men believe they are above the law, and Congress has done nothing.

Bush has signed documents giving him power to become a dictator. Secret treaties are being signed, like the North American Union, Nafta Superhighway, and Rex 84. Congress will be held responsible for not doing anything about these issues if they continue to do nothing about impeaching both Bush and Cheney.

We demand that impeachment proceedings begin now! Do something! Restore our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Stephen Brunette

Impeachment Redux: A Reply to a Cranky Critic
Political Affairs Magazine, NY - Jul 28, 2007
Even as I personally disagree with groups like http://www.Impeach07.org and Code Pink and with individuals like Cindy Sheehan and others on their particular choice of ...

In his response to a recent article I wrote calling on progressives to adopt different tactics with regard to the impeachment issue, David Walsh makes a number of shrill and dishonest points.

Walsh associates himself with a section of the far left that normally rejects dealing with electoral and congressional politics. And this is the point of his article. Walsh attacks Conyers and his supporters for not going forward with impeachment proceedings now. But then in the end reveals that he thinks the debate over and the struggle to impeach members of the Bush administration is irrelevant.

Pelosi needs to put impeachment on the table
San Francisco Chronicle Tuesday August 14, 2007 8:33 AM EST
President Woodrow Wilson recanted his no-war pledge, President Franklin D. Roosevelt disowned his balanced budget promise and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., should learn from those examples. She should reconsider her "impeachment [of President Bush] is off the table" pledge.

Bush’s Willing Legislators: The Case for Impeachment, and Why It Won’t Happen
Lew Rockwell Friday October 13, 2006 7:35 AM EST
The case for impeaching President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney is far stronger than the case against President Bill Clinton or the pending case that drove President Nixon to resign. With Republican control of Congress, especially of the House where impeachment must originate, it is hardly surprising that impeachment of the Republican Bush administration is a dead letter.

New York Times Saturday October 7, 2006 11:35 AM EST
Washington

IN the final weeks of this bruising campaign, the debate, in many ways, comes down to this: What would happen if the Democrats win?

Republicans warn, ever more urgently, that a Democratic takeover of Congress would mean wrenching ideological change: higher taxes; big new spending; maybe even impeachment.

As co-author of The Case for Impeachment, the most common question I get besides "Why hasn't Bush been impeached yet?" comes from right-wing critics, who ask some variant (usually laced with profanities) of: "How can you criticize the president when the country's at war?"

It's understandable that people might ask such a thing, given that we have some 140,000 American troops fighting in Iraq, and another 10,000 or so in Afghanistan, but the truth is that these conflicts aren't what people have in mind (most people don't even think about those wars). They're talking about the so-called "War on Terror."

The just-published The Case for Impeachment: The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush from Office by CounterPuncher Dave Lindorff and Barbara Olshansky is more than a manual for the members of Congress---those who under the constitution are empowered to impeach high officials---who might consider Bush’s impeachment after the November elections. It’s a compact (275 pages, including 60 pages of appendices and footnotes) catalogue of administration deceit and criminality that should encourage any honest still-unconvinced person to join the movement to drive out the Bush regime. As the authors observe, it will require a growing movement to force the politicians, who’ve been characterized so far by abject cowardice, to move forward on the procedure. If they do, we’ll be able to thank the authors for helping them make the right choice. If they don’t, the work will stand as an implicit indictment of them while continuing to inform those serious about real “regime change” in this country.

I know everyone hates plot-spoilers, but the story line is overplayed and the ending is worse than lousy, so I’ll say it now: the will of the people will not be expressed in the 2006 election.

This election won’t give expression to the loathing seventy-plus percent feel for the President. This election won’t set the stage for impeachment of a liar who has sanctioned torture, spied on potentially millions, and left Black people to die on rooftops.

Washington Post Friday May 19, 2006 10:49 AM EST
A major Republican talking point for '06 seems to be what the Democrats might do if they take over the House.

The GOPers can't exactly run on Iraq, Social Security or, for the moment, immigration, so, in classic political fashion, they're trying to motivate their voters by painting the opposition party as a scary bunch.

The chief bogeyman these days is John Conyers, the Michigan congressman who has repeatedly called for investigations of the Bush White House that could lead to impeachment. Conyers, it turns out, would become the Judiciary chairman if the Democrats pick up 15 seats in November.

Washington Post Thursday May 18, 2006 6:01 AM EST
As Republicans have become increasingly nervous about whether they will be able to maintain control of the House in the midterm elections, they have resorted to the straw-man strategy of identifying a parade of horrors to come if Democrats gain the majority. Among these is the assertion that I, as the new chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, would immediately begin impeachment proceedings against President Bush.

I will not do that.

CounterPunch Monday May 15, 2006 3:40 PM EST
There's talk of impeachment making the rounds these days ... and it's not just partisan hyperbole.

As Dave Lindorff and Barbara Olshansky explain in their new book, "The Case for Impeachment," the legal argument for removing George W. Bush from office is clear, present, and urgent.

However, for those seeking peace and justice, there are two reasons why impeachment should only be judged as a means to an end:

Boston Globe Sunday May 14, 2006 7:51 AM EST
SHAME ON Hillary Rodham Clinton. Rupert Murdoch, the right-wing publishing mogul, is hosting a fund-raiser in July for her Senate reelection campaign. Her explanation is that Murdoch, based in New York, is an important constituent: ''I'm very gratified that he thinks I'm doing a good job."

Murdoch runs Fox television, home of Bill O'Reilly and company. No far-right media enterprise has been more relentlessly dishonest in its efforts to destroy American liberalism in general and the Clintons in particular. Fox was prime cheerleader for the bogus Whitewater investigation and the impeachment campaign against Bill Clinton. Fox exists to oppose every liberal principle that Senator Clinton is accused, perhaps falsely, of standing for.

With the revelations Thursday in U.S.A. Today that the National Security Agency has compiled a vast database of every telephone call made in the U.S., President George W. Bush, who took pains yesterday not to deny the program's existence, is now fighting for his political life. The outraged reaction to the program by members of the U.S. Senate, including from some Republican members, even suggests that impeachment proceedings could be brought against the President should Democrats gain a majority in November.

New York Times Sunday May 7, 2006 10:20 PM EST
WASHINGTON, May 5 — To anyone who doubts the stakes for the White House in this year's midterm Congressional elections, consider that Representative John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, the Democrat who would become chairman of the Judiciary Committee if his party recaptured the House, has called for an inquiry into the possible impeachment of President Bush over the war in Iraq.

Or listen to Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont, who would run the Senate Judiciary Committee if the Democrats took the Senate. Mr. Leahy vowed in a recent interview to subpoena top administration officials, if he got the chance, to answer more questions about their secret eavesdropping program and what he considers faulty prewar intelligence.

WASHINGTON – I haven't had any problems with the FBI lately that I know of, and I was hoping it would stay that way.

The noose is tightening around George Bush and his gang of White House crooks and liars, with prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald reportedly getting closer to an indictment of Karl Rove, and now with the Illinois and California state legislatures considering resolutions that would have those states submit bills of impeachment to the U.S. House of Representatives--an alternative means of bringing an impeachment case against a president when, as now, the sitting members of Congress don't have the courage or conviction to do so themselves.

These are dangerous times, because the Bush family history, and the Rove M.O., are to attack viciously and without restraint when cornered.

The United States of America has undergone three impeachment proceedings. In 1868, President Andrew Johnson was impeached because he removed Secretary of War Edwin Stanton from his position, which was a violation of the Tenure of Office Act. He was not convicted, and Kansas Senator Edmond G. Ross, who cast the vote that saved the president, is profiled in John F. Kennedy's Profiles In Courage. In 1974, President Richard M. Nixon was impeached because of the Watergate break-iin coverup, but he resigned from office before the proceedings could go forth. And in 1998-99, President Bill Clinton was impeached for lyin
