An Ohio Democratic lawmaker and former presidential candidate has presented articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush to Congress.
Thirty-five articles were presented by Rep. Dennis Kucinich to the House of Representatives late Monday evening, airing live on C-SPAN.
A long-awaited Senate Intelligence Committee report made public this morning [June 5, 2008] concludes that President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney made public statements to promote an invasion of Iraq that they knew at the time were not supported by available intelligence.
… The Senate report, the first official examination of whether top officials knew that their public statements were unsubstantiated when they made them, reviewed five speeches by Bush, Cheney and former Secretary of State Colin Powell between August 2002 and February 2003. It also dissected key statements made by them and other top officials, including Rumsfeld and then-national security adviser Condoleezza Rice.
The committee found that the administration’s warnings that former dictator Saddam Hussein was in league with Osama bin Laden, a highly inflammatory assertion in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, al Qaida attacks, weren’t substantiated by U.S. intelligence reports. In fact, it said, U.S. intelligence agencies were telling the White House that while there’d been sporadic contacts over a decade, there was no operational cooperation between Iraq and al Qaida, the report said.
oo, baby, don’t stop with that sweet talk:
Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan will testify before the House Judiciary Committee next week on the Plame affair, the Associated Press reported today.
“President Bush’s former spokesman, Scott McClellan, will testify before a House committee next week about whether Vice President Dick Cheney ordered him to make misleading public statements about the leaking of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity,” the AP reported.
“McClellan will testify publicly and under oath before the House Judiciary Committee on June 20 about the White House’s role in the leak and its response, his attorneys, Michael and Jane Tigar, said on Monday.”
because we can go on all night long with talk like this:
Kucinich has introduced a similar impeachment resolution against Vice President Cheney.
