Kucinich Writes to Conyers


November 9, 2007
The Honorable John Conyers, Jr.
Chairman
Committee on the Judiciary
2138 Rayburn HOB
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Chairman Conyers

I am writing in support of H. Res. 799, the Articles of Impeachment which were referred to the committee relative to the Impeachment of the Vice President of the United States of America.

Recent reports indicate that the Vice President is attempting to shape the National Intelligence Estimate on Iran to conform to his misperceptions about the threat Iran actually poses. Much like his deceptive efforts in the lead up to the Iraq war, the Vice President appears to be manipulating intelligence to conform to his beliefs.

If the reports are true, they add additional weight to the case for impeachment. I believe impeachment remains the only tool Congress has to prevent a war in Iran. This information relates directly to the Article III charges in the resolution. I urge your timely consideration.

Sincerely,

/s/

Dennis J. Kucinich

Member of Congress

I hope Conyers will see to it that Cheney is impeached, tried in the Senate and hopefully found guilty. I'd like to see Cheney out of the White House and tried as a war criminal and imprisoned (at the very least).

I do not hate Cheney or anyone else. I don't do hate. But I love the United States, which is where I have lived my whole life, and have never even been able to travel outside it (due to low funds).

This guy is disastrous for the U.S. and the whole world.

Goodbye, Cheney! (I hope)

Please act now to hold hearings on impeachment of VP Cheney. Thank you

Cheney has violated the constitution in more ways then one. What does it take in this lax democracy of ours to indict a guilty Vice President? Don't hesitate or be intimidated by the Pelosi crowd, she is no heroine, but you can be a hero, Congressman Kucinich.

Bush and Cheney should not have been in office in the first place. They have been lying to the American public from the 1st time they entered into the White House. The use the words "War on Terror" to scare the American public yet still he fails to get Bin Ladin, the terrorist leader who killed over 3,000 Americans on 9/11/01. I agree with impeaching both of them. They have caused enough damage and broken a lot of hearts.

Bring our sons and daughters back home. They should not be fighting in a civil war.

Try/Convict Cheney and get a few Trillion back from Halliburton by way of a Fine

He is disastrous becuase he's a traitor.

Thanks,
ce

Congressman Kucinich NEVER gives up fighting for what's right for America and "We The People" who live here. For the LIFE OF ME I can't understand why "regular" Americans aren't sending him plenty of donations and supporting him in droves!!!
I love you, Dennis. I'm in it with you all the way!

Will someone please confirm? btw Larry King on UfOs tonight, even had clip of Jimmy Carter relaying his sighting. The debunker is the only one who came off foolish.

Number changed from 333 to 799 after being referred to committee from the floor.

and not worry about it

I'm continually struck by how completely foolish and stupid the people are who just LOVE to make fun of Dennis Kucinich.

My God, he is the ONLY one in Washington, D.C. who has even a SHRED of INTEGRITY! He is the ONLY one in Washington, D.C. who is willing to say what needs to be said. And to do what needs to be done.

I'm going to send him a check. Right now. We should BE so fortunate to have such a man as our president. Of course that isn't what is wanted. They are all out for Number One.

The only jokes are those who love to make fun of him. Like schoolyard bullies and dumbasses. The joke is on them!

I an just about out of unemployment and now have to pay for my health insurance. I am way better off than most people I know. Mr. Kucinich is far and away the best with "no strings attached".

"My God, he is the ONLY one in Washington, D.C. who has even a SHRED of INTEGRITY! He is the ONLY one in Washington, D.C. who is willing to say what needs to be said. And to do what needs to be done."

Kucinich is a good legislator, but he is not the "ONLY one in Washington" with a "SHRED of INTEGRITY." Just for starters, here are a few more: Russ Feingold, Bernie Sanders, Henry Waxman, Patrick Leahy, Dick Durbin, Byron Dorgan, Robert Wexler, Louise Slaughter, Janice Schakowsky, Tim Ryan, Chris Dodd, Sheldon Whitehouse, Joe Biden, Tom Harkin, Jim Webb, Tammy Baldwin, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Jim McDermott. I'm sure there are many more, but these are the people who came immediately to mind.

You'd better hope there are more or we are doomed.

Dennis Kucinich is by far the only true public servant left to lead our nation back to true democracy. I won't vote for anyone else...... Go Dennis GO

I agree with you Cheney should be impeached.

KICINICH is a very bright and moral man who would be a great leader for peace and harmony in the world. Unfortunately, either because the US Media tends to find flaws in candidates that reveal honesty and humaness or the American Public is too stupid to recognize when the Media is manipulating their opinion by focusing on non-issues (UFOs) instead the issues (eg the glaring mountain of corruption in Washington and the erosion of the US Constitution), the result is the same. Good honest candidates, that may not be perfect in the eyes of the Media, are beat down, while hubris-filled and arrogent morons are placed on pedestals. This may be why the US populus thought Jimmy Carter was a terrible president, but in the world view, he won a Nobel Prise. Go figure!

HEY, the "facts were being fixed around the policy" and it worked just fine for Iraq, so it's bound to work for Iran too. After all, you fool 'em once and get away with it, then they sure can be fooled again, easier than the first time. Especially since that New Direction 110th Democratic "Waste of Time" Congress won't even bother to check about that faked Iraq pre-war intelligence, so it's sure to work just fine for Iran. "De ja fu" all over again as Josef Goebels might say, they'll believe "the big lie" faster than the small lie. Let's go for it!

"Congress won't even bother to check about that faked Iraq pre-war intelligence".

They do not have to. They already knew. There were too many smoking guns from the get-go. I knew but my anti-abortion co-workers were not interested. They had to go to D.C. and march against abortion. I was branded a traitor whereas I was the only one in my group that served in the military.

the anti-abortion people need to be confronted like this:

Reagan was a republican president for 8 years. Nothing was done about abortion.

HW Bush was republican president for 4 years. Nothing was done about abortion.

Clinton was president for 8 years, most of that time challenged with a majority republican congress. That congress did nothing about abortion.

GW Bush 7 years and most of that tenure with a majority republican congress. Ditto!

Ask your republican friends this question: If republicans are so anti-abortion, why haven't they utilized their power in the last 27 years? Answer: Its just too good of a political football for them!

EXCELLENT POINTS & FACTS. I'LL USE THAT INFO, THANX.

Dennis is absolutely AWESOME! Our only hope.

I despise Tim Russert for asking him the UFO question because
he only asked it to make Dennis look like a fool.

Well, Tim, YOU are the fool.

It's getting pretty bad when you begin to rely on Putin's threat during his visit to Teheran that if the US attacked Iran Russia would, as Iran's ally, be at war with the US to stop CheneyBush. But then that assumes that they are both still sane, growing evidence to the contrary. Next question. Is Pelosi sane or is she so afraid of triggering CheneyBush madness that she keeps impeachment off the table as Conyers suggested was the fear, and I do mean FEAR, the other week? Anybody who isn't afraid of the "madness of the king(s)" hasn't been paying attention.

Pelosi is not afraid, i have seen her "high 5" Bush to many time's, they are in bed together, probably quite litterally to!

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez warns the Bush-Cheney regime that if they attack Iran, oil will jump up to 150 to 200 dollars a barrel. And they don't care, because the bottom line is profit. Impeach Bush and Impeach Cheney both!

All it means is, I have seen an "unidentified flying object" doesn't mean it came from outer space, you dips, just means you can't identify it as an airplane, a jet or any other explained object..., 47% of Americans admit to seeing one...get a life

The most important thing is to hold this criminal Executive Branch accountable (thats not imagination, they are criminal) and bring the rule of law, the Constitution back into government...Civics 101

Of all the books that I have read about the disaster called the Bush/Cheney White House, the book "The United States vs George W Bush et al." by Elizabeth de la Vega outlines a perfect indictment of these pychophantic clowns.

Plenty of other books: The One Percent Doctrine" by Ron Suskind or "Armed Madhouse" by Greg Palast to name two others paint a very clear picture on the dirty deeds of the Bush regime.

Any one in this country that still thinks that Bush/Cheney are doing a good job or that this is nothing more than a liberal attack is either complicit in it or is willfully allowing themselves to remain ignorant of the truth in the face of that truth!

As far as I'm concerned, every single Democrat in Congress that doesn't at least allow investigations should be ousted from their cozy little jobs by those of us that believe in the Constitution and the Rule of Law!

To all Democrats in Congress:

STOP PROTECTING THESE CHICKENHAWKS!!

Kuchinich in '08'

If, in fact, we are a nation of laws, then it follows all citizens must abide by and uphold the law. In addition to what has already been said, tens of thousand have died based on lies and prejudice. This is a hate crime. For us to be complacent and not to impeach the perpetrators of this treasoneus abuse of power assigns all Americans a share in the responsibility and an equal measure of guilt. After what I have seen from both sides of the aisle over the last few decades my belief has not been shaken in our democracy, but I am convinced we are anything but a democracy. My shame as a citizen of the world is deep and far reaching - from the battlefields of Korea, Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Burma to Guatamala, El Salvadore and Nicaragua to Iraq and Iran.

I believe in the American people but can no longer say I believe in the government which, through propoganda and psychological terrorism, carries out the agendas of the multi-national corporations and not the will of the people. Violence and murder are not solutions. If Congress will not even debate the legality of this war, subsequent erosion of the Bill of Rights, and disregard of the American Constitution we are not the United States, but instead an empire that occupies the same geography. The current adminstration is guilty of crimes against humanity. Its members should be charged as war criminals in a world court and punished accdordingly.

Shame on the Democrats for their stupified silence. Democrats seem more concerned with "electability" than the issues confronting the nation from the war to health care. Not all Americans are fools. I do not place Wall Street above my Asain, Middle Eastern, African, European, South American, and North American brothers and sisters. I want them to all to have food, shelter, breathable air, drinkable water, medicine and believe in the universal right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Our Declaration of Independence is not a static, arcane document but instead, a mission statement to which, rather than the false god of patriotim, we should pledge our allegiance.

With our form of "Media" Democracy and "Party" Loyality we truely are up the creek. What to do, what to do?

The Progressive Movement should open their eyes. We are the dis-enfranched Democrats. Now turn you heads to the Right. There hideing below Corporate Media's awareness is an equal number of Republicans who want the same things we want, NO WAR, habis corporus, no torture, ect, ect ect. And they even have their own Dennis Kucinich. His name is Ron Paul and the press gives him even worse treatment than it gives Dennis.

Just think, Green Party, Parot Party, Whig Party. It's just some name for a group of people who really beleive in something. I propose the "No Empire" Party with it's own slate of congress persons to kick the intrenched out of Washington.

I give you: KUCINICH / PAUL in 08 or PAUL / KUCINICH in 08

The Old Hippy

You got it! That would be a United ticket and good for the US

That would be even better.

Paul will not only cancel NAFTA & WTO, He will also get us out of the UN, GATT, IMF, The World Bank, ICC, Peru Free Trade Agreement & CAFTA.

the tIme to talk and the time to think has pased
IT IS NOW TIME TO ACT IF WE ARE TO SURIVE'

We can respect Ron Paul for his obvious sincerity and coherent integrity; and work with him in regard to his opposition to the war in Iraq; but beyond that any progressive that hitches up to be an active Paul supporter is committing a serious error in judgment. The man is a maniacal laissez faire libertarian - no taxes; no public schools; no public health services;....

Let's be content to view him as an honorable but WRONG political opponent who can be dealt with productively because of his respect for the process, which is what distinguishes him from others in his party.

Unity is over-rated - democracy takes at least two sides.

When Germany succumbed to Hitler's fascism, the credulous 'Reich wing' faction was easily fooled by the Reichstag fire (false flag). The lemming minded cheered as Hitler invaded Poland, terrorized Europe and threatened the planet. After the public became consumed with the same fear/hate that led to Germany's undoing.

In the 21st century, 'Reich wing' thinking American citizens were easily fooled by the burning of the WTC buildings (false flag)on 9/11. Paranoia consumed so many people with stupid racist fears/hate that they blindly cheered for a mock president, Bush, to invade sovereign nations to plunder/rape/torture/murder/contaminate. Amazingly, such people still cannot find Iraq on a map and they also have difficulty finding the United States on a map.

While Saddam was not a benevolent Dictator, neither he nor Iraq had anything whatsoever to do with 9/11, he was not supporting 'al Qaeda'(tiolets)and he had NO 'WMDs'. But he did have OIL and brown people right? Stupidity has no problem blindly following the same swaggering liars into more stupid, illegal wars with Iran and perhaps Syria. The consequences of this warped recklessness will be the American Empire's undoing when International Communities understandably retaliate.

Our military personnel are being exploited/destroyed and denied dignified health care, the American dollar is nearly destroyed, Cheney/Bush's lengthy list of warped, treasonous crimes against America's Constitutional Republic and American Citizens has yet to be addressed, 1.2 million Iraqi's have been killed, women, children and grandparents have been raped, tortured and murdered, the illegal deployments of uranium weapons has rendered millions of people to a fate of unbelievably painful deaths, innocent people are being harassed, illegally spied upon, threatened and tortured, $2.3 trillion dollars is missing from the US Treasury, billions of dollars have been wasted in Cheney/Bush's criminal enterprise, chickenhawk Cheney has been reaping obscene profits from the Afghanistan/Iraq invasions and occupations through Halliburton, Bush is trying to destroy the sovereignty of the United States with his illegal "North American Union" scam, Bush refers to the United States Constitution as "just a goddamned piece of paper" and jokes about not finding his "WMDs". Ever since Bush/Cheney's dubious 2000 election, (selection)oil corporations have enjoyed the largest monetary profits in human history. All of this does not even begin to address Bush's personal business deals with the Bin Laden family or the lengthy list of felony and treasonous crimes that have been committed against us by this illegitimate government. Nancy Pelosi says that "impeachment (Constitutional Law) us off the table". I do not know if these people have been threatened, bribed or perhaps just mentally challenged but it certainly sound warped when such moral turpitude is "rationalized".

Regardless of the Zionist/Atheist elements from the Apartheid State of Israel corporate interests in the US government/media, the Constitution belongs to us. Thanks to the CFR and certain Rockefeller elements, mainstream domestic news media outlets can no longer be trusted. 'FOX NEWS' is perhaps the most brazen of all corporate media outlets when it comes to lies and propaganda. It is clear that WW2 did not end and the 4th Reich had been insidiously nurtured ever since the inception of the darkest elements in the CIA. Many are unaware of the fact that the Bush family had been financing Hitler's Nazi machines since the 1930s. It is clear that their modus operandi has not changed but the 'Reich wingnuts' have always taken pride in doing the same thing repeatedly and waiting for the predictable results to change. Please look around. Fortunately, the faction of people who took great pride in arrogant stupidity/denial is rapidly dwindling. Being a Veteran from a military family gives me a the right to complain because I know bovine excrement when I see it. How many people are still foolish enough to believe that 'God talks through Bush'?

International retaliation is about as likely as Bush being put to trial anytime within the next 15 years. It's actually very ironic that you attempt to conclude your comparison of the Iraq war to WWII with any sort of reaction from foreign nations. During World War II, most foreign nations shunned Hitler and then walked away because they didn't want to get involved, and not a whole lot has changed in that respect.

As for the "reich wing" assessment, very few people were fooled. Most people just didn't care. The people didn't vote to get into the war. Actually, if you go by congressional budgeting, we voted to stay out of it. Bush mis-appropriated funds and made up his own executive powers to allow him to send troops to war. That's kind of why we're looking to impeach him: he did what we told him not to do.

Comparing George Bush to Hitler is just giving the man more credit than he deserves. He's not taking over nations, he's just destroying his own. He's about as close to world domination as a de-clawed squirrel with one leg.

You also need to work on your politics. You can't mock the leader AND the people you want to impeach him, and expect to get anything done. More than likely, they'll do nothing just to spite you.

If we, the American people, do not take this country back from these warmongers, we are doomed! Funding must be cut off NOW...bring our soldiers home. It sickens me to think that Bush/Cheney will simply go back to their lavish life-style after 2009. They have run on hot air and fear. They have done more damage to the USA, than anyone in the history of this once great nation!

I've never been more alarmed by any previous administration - ever!

We are indebted to China through an outrageous debt (now isn't that a wonderful thought). Hey, lets get the "lead out" and put this country back to work. We've got to be know for producing more than these silly entertainment celebrities (so-called). We can no longer trust our food supply, water, air - leaders! Health Insurance is through the roof and profit is outrageous. We are controlled by the lobbist!

What has happened to those newly elected Democrats? Why isn't anyone talking about the real issues, other than than PBS? I'll tell you why - we are losing accountability. The news is owned and operated by special interest groups. It's not worth watching. I personally am already sick of this "race for the White House" - it only takes the focus off the real issues at hand.

We must not let this administration walk. IMPEACH!

Amen!!

It's simple - you vote on it and it can be done. Dems excuse they have other priorities is a bald faced lie. Impeach and get out of Iraq at the same time.

The only way to stop the Bush administration to commit more crimes is to make them accountable.
TO IMPEACH CHENEY IS A GOOG STRART!!!!!y
Who are the neoconservatives? What do they want? Why do they support Bush and Cheny and the wars????????

If we don't impeach now ... Goodbye America and Hello to Hell.

I am 54 years old. Eisenhower was in his first term when I was born. I was 10 years when JFK was assassinated. I have always been very aware of what my country is doing and what they (were about). They were about freedom, goodness, generosity, giving, caring, heroism, friendship, being civilized, and many more adjectives taht describe GOOD. NOT so anymore.

Even my 25 year old son can see that because of this administration this country has been denigrated and now has no moral standing in the world, not to mention of course to it's own people.

You people in Congress and all of those who represent "WE THE PEOPLE" must do what is your absolute responsibility. It is to represent us. It is to do what "WE THE PEOPLE", who ARE the GOVERNMENT, ask you to do. You must defend the Constitution of the United States or you yourselves are TRAITORS.

You must stop immediately the traitors who are destroying all of what America used to stand for, and possibly destroying the world.

An American, (something I USED TO BE PROUD OF.

Dear Chairman Conyers,
Please consider the articles of impeachment for Vice-President Cheney.
This man must be stopped...he is a criminal and has led our country into a war on based on lies and false evidence. Thank you. Sharon Schmidt

Dennis is oh so smart. Now with this note he is vindicated if darth cheney attacks Iran and perhaps helps apply pressure for Cheney to not Itack. Go dennis he's our kinda menace. And have you seen his attractive wife? She's smart too, makes laura bush look oh well.

Edwards - Kucinich 2008! Be there and and don't be late! Take an umbrella! A storm is comin.

Also IMPEACH bush with cheney, or are we going to get more excuses as to why you can't, we are sick and tired of your lame excuses, it seems to me, and half the country that there is no difference between the democrats or republicans, you so called law makers put your tail between your legs and run like a scared dog. GET OFF YOUR BUTT DO SOMETHING.

Time to Impeach Cheney...he is a true criminal

Thank you Congressman Kucinich for standing up for the American people. We don't understand why more Democrats are not representing the people, but we are truly thankful for you. You Sir are a leader, real man a gentleman and a true American patriot.

May God Bless you and yours.

Cheney hasn't done enough _already_? I believe we used to think of Conyers as one of the good guys. It's been my understanding he's been collecting the evidence of inappropriate actions by this administration for years now. So Kucinich feels he has to goad Conyers with an open letter reminding him that Cheney wants to lead us into an even more disastrous war with Iran in order to try to motivate Conyers to do the right thing with the evidence he already has?

I mean, what's up with that? It has an air of desperation like we're 99.9% of the way to total acceptance of dictatorship and this is the off chance to do something right in the nick of time if only he can convince Conyers and enough other congressmen to give a care.

Impeach NOW DON'T WAIT, STOP THE LOST OF LIFE FOR OIL.

Mr. Kucinich is providing the leadership and integrity that we in the United States are desperate for. He is courageously speaking the truth and implementing the will of the people. Both Cheney and Bush must be held accountable for their high crimes and misdemeanors. I hope that Dennis Kucinich is able to prevent the war with Iran that Cheney is so intent upon.

I sure hope the murderous bunch of criminals that we have running our country will wake up and realize that the American people can only take so much more. We are becoming the pariahs of the world. Our economy is running on debt and we're deep in an oil war. Will we kill a few million people in Iran too? What bullsh-t to say that Iran might attack Israel. Israel is the only country in the Middle East that goes around attacking other countries in "self-defense". Is that supposed to be taken seriously?

Congress, WAKE-UP our lives are in the balance!

I ask those not in favor of the impeachments of Cheney and Bush to present their reason(s) why they aren't in favor of Cheneys' and Bushs' impeachments to move forward? To the rest of our nation, regarding those in Senate and Congress that are not in favor of the impeachents of Cheney and Bush, the American people must work on replacing each and every single traitor that is representing the USA. And to find out who those traitors are is simply those who are not in favor of the impeachments of Cheney and Bush! Us Americans, not the politicians, are the world's role model and it is Us, the American people who will continue to fight those who think they are able to abandon the Constitution and get away with it.

Years ago this was a nation of laws,decency and upholding what as right. Since george has taken-and I mean TAKEN- office this country has lowered itself to the standards of the worst of our enemys. As we know our enemy's are NOT the iraqi's,not the Afgans,not ANYONE our "president" has deemed an enemy. Our foe is our president himself! He who spurts forth lies,media backed inuendo-paid for by those who wish to perpetuate the war for their own ends-and nominates those people who uphold his most unamerican beliefs that anyone not for us is against us!Where have we heard this kind of rederick before? Stalin? Hitler? Exactly when are we going -if EVER- to return to the land of the free and the home of the brave-not STUPID? Noone will read this of any importance, it will be washed away. I know it. You know it. Noone who gives a shit about this country's remarks will be forewarded to those who might actually give a shit about what they are doing to this once proud country. SHAME ON THE AND DAMN THEM TO HELL FOR WHAT THEY ARE DOING!Millions have died to uphold the beliefs of our founding fathers. You folks feel it's perfectly ok to shit on their memories and their sacrifices. Feel good? Checking account going well? SAD!!
