Begin Impeachment Proceedings in Judiciary Committee

Petition

To: Speaker Pelosi and House Judiciary Committee Democrats

I urge you to begin impeachment hearings for Vice President Cheney in the House Judiciary Committee immediately.

Congressman Kucinich's H.Res. 333, Articles of Impeachment for Vice President Dick Cheney, has 23 co-sponsors. On 11/6/07, 86 Democrats and 165 Republicans voted for a floor debate.

H.Res. 333 (now H.Res. 799) cites three reasons for Cheney's impeachment: his pre-war lies about non-existent Iraq WMD's, his pre-war lies about non-existent Iraq ties to Al Qaeda, and his ongoing threats of illegal war against Iran.

70% of Americans believe Cheney has abused his official powers, and 43% believe he should be impeached and removed based only on public evidence - even before Congress has sworn in a single witness to testify under oath about Cheney's still-secret illegal actions.

There is no time to waste in holding Vice President Cheney accountable for his deliberate pre-war lies about Iraq and his threats of an unprovoked and illegal attack on Iran.

I urge you to heed the public's demand for hearings on the impeachment of Vice President Cheney.
