Kucinich to Force Impeachment Vote

Dennis Kucinich will introduce a privileged resolution on Tuesday February 6 on the impeachment of Vice President Cheney.

“The momentum is building for impeachment,” Kucinich said. “Millions of citizens across the nation are demanding Congress rein in the Vice President’s abuse of power.

“Despite this groundswell of opposition to the unconstitutional conduct of office, Vice President Cheney continues to violate the U.S. Constitution by insisting the power of the executive branch is supreme.

“Congress must hold the Vice President accountable. The American people need to let Members of Congress know how they feel about this. The Vice President continues to use his office to advocate for a continued occupation of Iraq and prod our nation into a belligerent stance against Iran. If the Vice President is successful, his actions will ensure decades of disastrous consequences.”

The privileged resolution will force an up or down vote by the House within two days
of its introduction.

You will remember Kucinich introduced H.R. 333, which lays out the reasons for impeachment. The resolution states Cheney purposely manipulated intelligence for the case to go to war, fabricated the Iraq-al Qaeda connection to go to war and violated the constitution by openly threatening military action against Iran.

I fully expect it to fail.
