Rep. Dennis Kucinich Presents Articles Of Impeachment Against President Bush
Thanks to DAVEY D once again for the heads up on an incredibly important news item that was mysteriously absent from the major news outlets. On Monday evening, live on C-SPAN, Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich, presented 35 articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush to Congress. On the House floor, Rep. Kucinich stated that, "In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and to the best of his ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following abuses of power..."
After enduring two terms of one of the shadiest of Presidential tenures, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Rep. Kucinich previously tried to wage an impeachment campaign against Vice President Dick Cheney which did not gain support. In light of the recent book by former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, admitted failures from the administration and vast public disapproval of the Bush presidency, there seems to be enough heft to go forward.
