The Impeachment of Bush (and Cheney)

Tom Engelhardt has published an article by David Swanson on the topic of impeachment. It covers the reasons for impeachment as well as some of the historical contexts for impeachment, as well as the means by which the impeachment clause can be evoked.
Never before has the system of government established by the U.S. Constitution been as seriously threatened; never before has the built-in remedy for the sort of threat we face been as badly needed; never before have we had as good an opportunity to use that remedy exactly as it was intended.


An official censure by Congress would do nothing to compel the President to obey laws he chooses not to obey. Impeachment would do nothing. Only impeachment followed by removal from office will cure this cancer on the American political system. The current situation is exactly what the authors of the Constitution had in mind when they made impeachment and removal from office the means of protection against tyranny.

Impeachment, looking better and better as Mr. Bush plummets into deeper and deeper realms of criminal misconduct.
