If you believe impeachment hearings to investigate Vice President Richard B. Cheney are warranted there has never been a better time to say so. Sign the impeachment petition at: initiated by House Judiciary Committee members Robert Wexler (D-FL), Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) TODAY! 

Representative Anthony Weiner (D-NY) - also a member of the House Judiciary Committee - has just agreed in a communication to Bob Fertik of that he will add his name to this letter, according to an article by David Swanson published on OpEdNews.

Over a hundred and twenty thousand online signatures have been gathered in less than a week since Rep. Wexler posted the petition on his campaign website. This despite the original OpEd article: "A Case for Hearings" by the three members of Congress being refused by all major newspapers it was submitted to, including the New York Times and Washington Post, as well as multiple television networks.

This blackout by the Corporate Media led Congressman Wexler to reach out directly to the American people by posting an appeal on YouTube, entitled: "Rep. Wexler Wants Cheney Impeachment Hearings".

Eight total members of the House Judiciary Committee had either co-signed House Resolution 333 (now H. Res. 799) to impeach Vice President Cheney and/or co-authored this current appeal for impeachment before Rep. Weiner added his name. Co-signers of H. Res. 333 on the HJC include Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA), and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).

Clearly the House Judiciary is on the brink of possibly initiating impeachment hearings with nearly half of its Democratic members publicly committed to supporting impeachment of the Vice President.

A caller to the office of House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-MI) was told that the current impeachment bill H.R. 799 "is in special discussion", and that now is the time that we should be calling our Representatives".

Representative and Presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) first introduced H. Res. 333 last April and Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) just became the 24th co-signer on December 19th.

House Resolution 333 is comprised of three articles, charging that the Vice President "purposely manipulated the intelligence process to deceive the citizens and Congress of the United States by fabricating a threat of Iraq weapons of mass destruction" as well as lying "about an alleged relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda" among other claims.
