Kucinich to bring single article of impeachment for misleading US into war

therawstory | Nick Juliano | July 8

“Few in the House of Representatives have any intention of doing anything with the last 35 articles of impeachment Kucinich set before them last month, so the former presidential candidate appears to be lightening the load. Kucinich sent a letter to colleagues Tuesday asking them to support a single article of impeachment, to be introduced Thursday, which accuses President Bush of leading the country to war based on lies.”

Thank you Dennis! You are a hero! (please support him)


Call your representatives and especially John Conyers … demand impeachment hearings be started for Bush & Cheney – Remember executive privilege does not apply in an impeachment inquiry – Capitol Hill Switchboard: (202) 224-2131 , (800) 828-0498 (Pass this on!)


UPDATE (from afterdowningstreet.org)

Dennis began around 7 p.m. and just finished at 11:52 p.m.

Rep. Keith Ellison was chairing and made a comment regarding determining the privileged status of the resolution at a future time.

Dennis then moved successfully that tomorrow the following congress members be given time to speak in support of his resolution:
CUMMINGS
WOOLSEY
DEFAZIO
KAPTUR.

That’s a start! Ask your member to join them!


this is from a digg commenter around ll:30 pm:
Rep. Conyers of the Judiciary Committee is answering his phone personally tonight. I called his office (202) 225-5126 and was amazed to speak to him in person. He’s paying close attention to this… register your support of Rep. Kucinich!!


Nothing on cnn or abc news about this as of 12:25am (June 10)… just a little suspicious, no?

Dennis Kucinich on Secret House Meeting

“They try to propagandize the members…so you can’t go outside and talk about it because you would be violating the confidentiality. I just stopped going to them, because I realized they were an attempt to try to spin the members of congress under the pretext of a National Security “Secret”. I think democracy functions much better in sunlight than in the dark.”
