Should Congress Go Into Special Session For Impeachment Hearings?

    

Congress went home for their August recess but they left town without letting the American people witness impeachment hearings exposing the alleged high crimes and misdemeanors of the Bush administration.

39 Articles of Impeachment are pending in the House Judiciary Committee, H.Res. 333-3, H.Res. 1258-35, and H.Res. 1345-1, presented to Congress by Rep Dennis Kucinich, and each and every Article is "privileged", which, according to Jefferson's House Rules, requires immediate action by the full House over and above all other business, including a scheduled recess in August.

By going into Special Session, Congress would have ample time in August for impeachment hearings and voting on each and every Article of Impeachment, rather than coming back in September and announcing they have no time for impeachment hearings.

NO, Congress should not be called into Special Session for impeachment hearings 

YES, Congress should be called into Special Session for impeachment hearings 

Yes to special session
No to special session
