John Nichols: Censuring Bush requires citizens' help

By John Nichols, Capital Times

As President Bush and his aides scramble to explain new revelations regarding Bush's authorization of spying on the international telephone calls and e-mails of Americans, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee has begun a process that could lead to the censure, and perhaps the impeachment, of the president and vice president.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A leading Congressional Democrat wants to censure President George W. Bush for misleading Congress over Iraq.

Censure is not the enemy of impeachment, any more than impeaching Bush prevents impeaching Cheney. We have a tendency to jump five steps ahead of ourselves in order to find imaginary problems.

Help Us Pass H Res 635 to Create an Investigation into Grounds for Impeachment

Kit for passing local and state resolutions

Organize.

Tell the media.

When Richard Nixon abused power, Congress held a serious, bi-partisan investigation that resulted in articles of impeachment. Strong evidence suggests that George Bush and Dick Cheney launched an illegal war and lied to Congress, spied on Americans without court approval, leaked classified information, produced phony news reports, imprisoned without charge and tortured, targeted civilians and used illegal weapons. Ask your Congress Member to cosponsor House Resolution 635 for an investigation.
