This is the time for impeachment. Bush can still do much harm before he
leaves office. He is loosening environmental regulations, he is killing
civilians in Syria and Afghanistan, he is allowing all sorts of illegal
loans and grants, billions of taxpayers' money- to the banks and other
lenders. Only impeachment can stop him.
He is seeking to pardon himself and the members of his administration in advance for war crimes. Only impeachment can stop him. If he and Cheney are impeached- it could take a week or two, since the evidence is already amassed, Pelosi would fill in until Obama takes office.
Pelosi and the Dems have consistently said that they believe Bush and
Cheney should be impeached, but they didn't have the votes. Now that the
balance of power has shifted with the Obama victory, Congress should no
longer allow subpoenas to be ignored, oversight to be blocked, laws to be
overriden with signing statements. All these are violations of the
Constitution, impeachable offenses.
Wouldn't impeachment be a wonderful Christmas present? The restoration of the Constitution would cleanse the national soul. Disgracing the warmongers would go a long way toward establishing peace on earth.
Please call John Conyers and your own Representative this week, and ask them to put impeachment on the table, right up front. You can reach any House member through the Congressional switchboard- 202-225-3121.
