Rep. Kucinch and all of his impeachment resolution co-sponsors have been strangely silent on impeachment since they were all re-elected with the campaign donations of the impeachment/accountability movement.
Even Rep. Wexler who had a very public pro impeachment image has said little.
Did the seriousness of the Bush and Cheney crimes diminish?
Why are they so silent?
Since the Democrats now have control of everything, the excuses of House Democrats no longer have any credibility. It is time to act.
If the Illinois House Members can Impeach Gov. Blogojevich in just 90 Minutes of debate, The Democratic Members of the US House can at least "start" the impeachment process now, prior to January 20th To Prevent Bush from pardoning them.
You don't have to necessarily fininsh the impeachment process before January 20th, just get the resolutions on record (listing all possible major witnesses) and in open debate in the Judiciary Committee. That should counter Bush's pardons.*
CALL Rep. Kucinich and all of his co-sponsors and ask each of them to file a flood of their own single article impeachment resolutions before January 20th.
You can reach them through the US House operator at 202-224-3121 or 800-828-0498

* PLEASE SEE THE CONSTITUTION
The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
"an impeachment resolution can stop the pardons"
Cheney has stated that if the Congress does not impeach, then everything Bush and Cheney did is legal.
Do we want our generation remembered for that failure?
