Congressman Dennis Kucinich is right now on the floor of the House of Representatives introducing 35 articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush.
The Equal Justice Society (EJS) supports impeachment proceedings. In a Dec. 19, 2007, letter to Speaker Pelosi, EJS president Eva Paterson wrote that “impeachment should be put back on the table. We know that this administration has but one more year to govern but we know that it is critical that lawyers stand up and speak the truth. Dangerous precedents are being set. Future presidents and vice presidents will take from our silence our acquiescence to lawless acts. This compels us to act.”
“We’ve waited seven years to find one Member of Congress brave enough to stand up for our Constitution, for which generations of Americans have fought and died,” said Bob Fertik, President of Democrats.com. “We are thrilled and honored that Dennis Kucinich has chosen to be that one genuine patriot. We congratulate him on his historic leadership, and pledge to do everything in our power to persuade Congress to adopt all 35 Articles and put George W. Bush on trial before the Senate of the United States, exactly as the Founding Fathers wanted.”
“Some might question why Congressman Kucinich has done this now,” continued Fertik. “My question is why 434 other Congress Members have not done it before. Despite the uncountable and unspeakable crimes this administration has committed, George Bush and Dick Cheney remain in power and immune from prosecution. Congress must impeach Bush and Cheney now – before they further abuse their power by pardoning for all of their crimes.”
“Our Founders created a single executive precisely so that we could hold that one person accountable for the actions of the Executive Branch. It is high time we did so, and millions of Americans will be urging their representatives to support the effort being led by Congressman Kucinich,” said David Swanson, creator of ImpeachCheney.org, Washington Director of Democrats.com and co-founder of the AfterDowningStreet.org coalition.
