The House is not in order,” said Kucinich to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), upon which Pelosi pounded her gavel.

“Resolved,” Kucinich then began, “that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate. …

“In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and to the best of his ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following abuses of power…”

The first article Kucinich presented, and many that followed, regarded the war in Iraq: “Article 1 – Creating a secret propaganda campaign to manufacture a false case for war against Iraq.”

On several occasions, Kucinich referenced RAW STORY and its noted investigative news chief, Larisa Alexandrovna, as source material for the articles. Two of the RAW STORY pieces Kucinich mentioned are viewable here and here.

    God, I love Kucinich. He’s a democrat’s democrat. Totally underrated. It’s too bad that this won’t go anywhere – this should have been done years ago. But then again, I’m sure no one would have voted for it then, either.

  2. Darrell Prows says:

    The propriety of impeachment cannot be argued against. How wonderful if Rep. Kucinich could get the leadership support he deserves (particularly from two parties who will remain nameless at this critical juncture in the presidential election process).

    (Make that three, if “Straight Talk” was anything but bullshit!)
