Kucinich Introduces Historic Articles of Impeachment Against Vice President Richard Cheney

(April 24, 2007) — Ladies and gentlemen, your tireless efforts for impeachment have finally borne fruit.

Your countless emails, calls, letters, town hall meetings, street protests, and huge marches have persuaded one courageous Member of Congress to start the impeachment process.

That Member is Dennis Kucinich, and here are his Articles of Impeachment, officially known as H.Res. 333.
More on Kucinich: Articles of Impeachment (H.R. 333):

In a nutshell, Kucinich believes Cheney should be impeached because he:

1. Manipulated intelligence to fabricate a threat of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction 2. Manipulated intelligence to fabricate a relationship between Iraq and al Qaeda 3. Openly threatened aggression against Iran absent any real threat to the United States

Let’s show our support for Kucinich’s heroic efforts by asking the rest of Congress to co-sponsor these Articles , and by telling the media we demand impeachment now.

* Ask your Congress Member to support impeachment proceedings against Vice President Cheney:

• Ask members of the House Judiciary Committee and Speaker Nancy Pelosi to lead, follow, or get out of the way.
Tell the media that you support Kucinich’s proposal to begin impeachment proceedings:
