Kucinich Reads Resolution to Impeach Vice President Cheney 3 Videos

Kucinich Reads Resolution to Impeach Vice President Cheney 3 Videos

Richard B. Cheney, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of Vice President of the United States, has openly threatened aggression against the Republic of Iran absent any real threat to the United States.

Despite no evidence that Iran has the intention or the capability of attacking the United States and despite the turmoil created by United States invasion of Iraq, the Vice President has openly threatened aggression against Iran.

The Vice President, who repeatedly and falsely claimed to have had specific, detailed knowledge of Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction capabilities, is no doubt fully aware of evidence that demonstrates Iran poses no real threat to the United States of America.

The Vice President's deception upon the citizens and Congress of the United States that enabled the failed United States invasion of Iraq forcibly altered the rules of diplomacy such that the Vice President's recent belligerent actions towards Iran are destabilizing and counterproductive to the national security of the United States.

In all of this, Vice President Richard B. Cheney has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as Vice President, and subversive of constitutional government, to the prejudice of the cause of law and justice and the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

Wherefore Richard B. Cheney, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I do agree that Dick Cheney has been involved in a number of illegal activities and is shielding himself with the priviledge of his office. But I can't help but think back to earlier this year when he avoided the power of the oversight commitee by claiming he was not part of the executive branch. Did anything ever come of that? I get the feeling that Congress simply doesn't have the balls to stand up to Cheney, and even if they did impeach him, he would refuse to stand before Congress and eventually force them to apologize. I'm glad at least Dennis Kucinich is willing to take a stand, but I won't be surprised if he's portrayed as just a liberal nutjob and not taken seriously by most of the country or Congress.
