Kucinich: Impeach Bush for Lying About WMDs

July 10, 2008 - by Donny Shaw

Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), who introduced 35 articles of impeachment against President Bush last month, is back pushing impeachment again, this time with only one article. His push to impeach Bush appears to have gained some traction in the month since his last attempt. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has insisted since day one of the 110th Congress that impeachment is “off the table,” but today she said she expects the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on Kucinich’s article.

Kucinich’s new stand-alone article is entitled Deceiving Congress with Fabricated Threats of Iraq WMDs to Fraudulently Obtain Support for an Authorization of the Use of Military Force Against Iraq. You can read the full text of a draft version at the pro-impeachment blog, AfterDowningStreet.  

If you turn on C-Span RIGHT NOW (4:40 ET), you can see Kucinich reading his article live on the House floor.

    Not yet. I’ll post it to this blog once it has been given an official number.

    Wow, I just read the draft version. Over 4,000 dead US soldiers later, its both deeply saddening and terribly maddening.

    Plame was a WMD expert. The Downing Street memo was a foreign intelligence operation Congressman Con yers bought.

    The WMD was there. There was a doctor in lab producing it. She was freed by the Iraqi courts in a deal with CIA, probably Plame.
