Is Rep. Conyers corrupt?


John Conyers

Rep. John Conyers (MI) has portrayed himself as a leading supporter of impeachment but in his job as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee he has blocked impeachment for years.

Conyers promised to hold impeachment hearings after the election but broke his word.

Conyers ignored a petition with over one million signatures asking for impeachment hearings. Conyers also ignored a number of other impeachment petitions that added up to a second million or so signatures.

Now we find that Conyers was using a Republican operative involved in alleged vote rigging scams to maintain and control his congressional website. The following articles have more:

"GOP election stealers run Rep. John Conyers' Congressional Website."-

and "GOP Technology Powerhouse eMerges Behind Firewalls on the Hill"

There are a multitude of progressive and Democratic website specialists available who could have maintained Conyers' website. Why did he go to this GOP operative? Did Conyers have a "behind the scenes" relationship with the Republican operative? Does this explain Conyers' refusal to hold impeachment hearings? Will we ever know? The only way Conyers can prove to the voters in his district that he wasn't playing games with impeachment is to start impeachment hearings prior to January 20th.

Vice President Cheney has admitted authorizing torture. President Bush, in an interview with Brit Hume that aired on Fox News Sunday, admitted that he personally authorized torture.

Torture is prohibited by the US Constitution, Federal Law and by treaty in the Geneva Convention.

Defending the Separation of Powers and the House's Constitutional prerogative as the sole maker of Federal Laws and the Constitution's mandate to have them obeyed and enforced by the executive branch, is the responsibility of the US House, not Obama. What is Conyers waiting for?

If Conyers fails to allow impeachment to proceed before January 20th he will be remembered as the man who refused to use the power of his office to defend our Constitution, Rule of Law and Separation of Powers.
