Kucinich Impeachment article to be read on the floor of the House today.

From a Kucinich email I got this morning:

This afternoon, at approximately 5 p.m. (EDT), the Clerk of the House of Representatives will give the first reading of the Article of Impeachment of President George Bush. Article One charges the President with deceiving Congress with fabricated threats of Iraq WMDs to fraudulently obtain support for an authorization of the use of military force against Iraq.

Once the Clerk reads the bill, I will move to refer the bill to the Judiciary Committee for hearings. I believe the American people have a right to an open airing of the charges against this President. Did he or did he not lie to take us into a war? I believe the evidence is overwhelming that President Bush knew that Iraq was not an imminent threat, was not in possession of WMDs at the time, and had nothing to do with 911 or with al Queda's role in 911. And yet, despite having facts to the contrary, he took the U.S. into war with devastating consequences for our troops, our nation, and the people of Iraq. Congress must hold hearings.

It's a little bit of history we can all watch. Hope all six of my readers will check it out on Cspan.

Update: The House vote to move the Impeach Article to the Judiciary committee has passed! One Democrat voted no but 7 Republicans voted yes! Final vote total: Yeas-238 No-180

Praise Buddha! Although Conyers has already said they will only discuss the measure, they will not forward it out of committee.
