Pelosi Says Kucinich Impeachment Resolution May Get Hearing

Dennis Kucinich must have jumped for joy when Nancy Pelosi commented today that she thought his impeachment resolution may see committee hearings:

Kucinich is expected to offer a “privileged resolution” this afternoon calling on the House to look at whether President Bush should be removed from office for lying to Congress and the American public when he sought congressional approval back in 2002 for taking military action to invade Iraq and overthrow Saddam Hussein.

Pelosi has  said previously that impeachment “was off the table,” so her comments this morning were surprising, and clearly signaled a new willingness to entertain the idea of ousting Bush, although no one in the Democratic leadership believes that is likely since the president has only six months left in this term.

This is a major change in policy. Enjoy the full story here.
