That's the report from liberal radio host Bree Walker:
House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers has said that if three more Congress Members get behind impeachment he will start the impeachment proceedings.
I was a guest today on Bree Walker's radio show. She's the progressive radio host from California who purchased Cindy Sheehan's land from her in Crawford, Texas...
It appears to be more than that. Bree Walker told me, on the air, that Conyers said that all he needs is three more Congress Members backing impeachment, and he'll move on it, even without Pelosi. I asked whether that meant specifically moving from 14 cosponsors of H Res 333 to 17, or adding 3 to the larger number of Congress Members who have spoken favorably of impeachment but not all signed onto bills. Bree said she didn't know and that Conyers had declined to take any questions.
Actually, it seems they're not really sure whether they'll impeach Bush or Cheney. The liberal Left seems pretty ambivalent on this point, as long as both are eventually impeached.
Either way, this target of three more members seems perfectly doable. It's safe to assume, I think, that we're talking about impeaching Cheney first. But, even if Conyers is talking about Bush, the target is perfectly achievable.
What's the test anyway -- high crimes or misdemeanors, right? Sure. I think they both did that. Does it matter? The Kucinich legislation that liberals are pushing would impeach Cheney for manipulating intelligence about Iraq and Iran.
Here's the list of cosponsors of the legislation: Yvette Clarke, William Lacy Clay, Keith Ellison, Sam Farr, Bob Filner, Hank Johnson, Barbara Lee, Jim McDermott, Jim Moran, Jan Schakowsky,Maxine Waters,Lynn Woolsey and Albert Wynn.
Impeachment would be the greatest political gift the Democratic party could give to the GOP. It would demonstrate just how frivolous the Democratic party has become, and it would put the Senators running for President in the difficult position of having to decide whether to sink their national hopes completely, or sink their chances of securing the Democratic presidential nomination.
If you are a conservative who happens to be represented by a Democratic Member of Congress -- particularly a member of the healthy Democratic lunatic fringe -- please call and insist that your Representative sign on to the legislation. It could be the most valuable thing you could do to restore conservative governance.
