Kucinich Wants to Impeach Cheney
Dennis Kucinich is preparing to file impeachment charges against Vice President Dick Cheney for . . . something, reports WaPo’s Mary Ann Akers.
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), the most liberal of the Democratic presidential candidates in the primary field, declared in a letter sent to his Democratic House colleagues this morning that he plans to file articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney.
But Kucinich shouldn’t hold his breath on getting anywhere with his impeachment plan. “We’ll see a Kucinich Administration before we’ll see a Cheney impeachment,” quipped one Democratic aide.
Sounds about right. Still, this publicity stunt should make him popular with the base.
Here is the text of his letter, a copy of which was forwarded to the Sleuth:
April 17, 2007
This week I intend to introduce Articles of Impeachment with respect to the conduct of Vice President Cheney. Please have your staff contact my office . . . if you would like to receive a confidential copy of the document prior to its introduction in the House.
