URGENT: Contact the U.S. House Judiciary Committee and Ask for Impeachment of Cheney and Bush

1. Email Them All
You can Email Speaker Pelosi and all of the Judiciary Committee Members for whom we have identified good Email addresses all at once by signing this petition.

2. Phone and Email Them

Call the House Judiciary Committee staff at 202-225-3951.

Your message can be as simple as "Please impeach Cheney" or "Please support and cosponsor Congressman Kucinich's proposal to begin impeachment proceedings against Vice President Cheney."

You can quote John Conyers from John Nichols' book (pointed out by attentive reader Gordon Bennett): "I have a choice. I can either stand by and lead my constituents to believe I do not care that the president apparently no longer believes he is bound by any law or code of decency. Or I can act."

You can point to the Vermont Senate which passed a resolution on April 20, 2007, requesting impeachment. It is UNPRECEDENTED for Congress to ignore an impeachment request coming from a legislative body. It would be terrible for Congress to break this long-established precedent. When the Florida legislature requested the impeachment of Judge Swayne, Congress acted upon it. It came to the floor of the House as a highly privileged motion. The House required a committee to report on impeachment. When the committee reported it, impeachment was passed. When the Mississippi legislature requested the impeachment of Judge Bruin, Congress acted upon it. It came to the floor of the House as a highly privileged motion. The House required a committee to report on impeachment. Shortly later, a new judge was appointed, apparently after Judge Bruin died or resigned.

Don't forget Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:
