House Judiciary Launches Online Push for Cheney Impeachment Hearings

This was sent to us from a local Green, I'd also like to remind everyone that Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney filed articles of impeachment for Bush, Cheney and Rice over a year ago.

House Resolution 333 (also abbreviated as H Res 333) is a resolution submitted to the House of Representatives on April 24, 2007 by Representative Dennis Kucinich (D- Ohio) during the 110th United States Congress that, if passed, would impeach Vice President Dick Cheney on three charges. If the House approves an article of impeachment, it then moves to the Senate, which has constitutional authority to try, and with a two-thirds vote, remove a person from office.

After six months without a debate or vote on H Res 333 (either in a committee or on the floor of the House), Kucinich re-introduced its identical content as a new resolution, H Res 799, on November 6, 2007. Like H Res 333, the new resolution was also referred to the Judiciary Committee.

Following the release of an online op-ed advocating for Cheney impeachment hearings by Representatives Robert Wexler (D-FL), Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), all Members of the House Judiciary Committee, Wexler has launched an ambitious online effort to mobilize support for immediate impeachment hearings for Vice President Dick Cheney.

Wexler, a senior member of the House Judiciary Committee, has launched to mobilize grass roots and netroots support from across the nation in order to increase pressure on Congress to hold hearings. In a new video, featured at, Wexler issues a strongly worded statement in favor of hearings.

This is our chance to tell the House Judiciary Committee that we believe in the constitution and want our country back from this aberrant administration. Please take a moment to visit and voice your support.

For Those In The Rochester, NY area let the Democrat and Chronicle know how you feel with a quick thumbs up for Wexler and Kucinich at this link D&C Thumbs Up/Down
