It’s Not Too Late to Impeach Bush, Cheney
It is not too late to impeach President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for violating the fourth, sixth and eighth amendments to the Constitution, for lying repeatedly about reasons to invade Iraq, for failing to prevent the downfall of our economy, for coercing intelligence information to be fixed around policy, for treason in exposing the identity of important covert intelligence operatives, for illegally violating subpoenas, for failing to provide sufficiently for our forces in battle, and for the indiscriminate abuse of signing statements to avoid obeying laws passed by Congress. It’s not too late. In fact, it’s essential to impeach before Jan. 20.
Impeachment isn’t about removal from office. It’s about rescuing the rule of law, the very foundation of our great nation — the United States Constitution. For if we should fail to impeach Mr. Bush or Mr. Cheney, the dangerous precedent of the lawless unitary executive is passed on to future administrations, and we shall see even more violations of our rights.
Furthermore, only impeachment can prevent Mr. Bush from pardoning himself and the other lawbreakers of his administration.
