Our time has come.

Kucinich has filed an impeachment resolution against Cheney in the House Judiciary Committee. And it just so happens that Impeach for Peace has recently met with Rep. Keith Ellison of the Judiciary Committee. Rep. Ellison was kind enough to give us some advice as to how to pressure that committee to act on impeachment. He reccomended which members of the Judiciary could use some encouragement. So, we've adjusted our Do-It-Yourself Impeachment (which has apparently been wildly successful in helping Kucinich), and have refocused it to impeach Cheney, as well as directing it to the members of the Judiciary recommended by Ellison. So, it's our turn again to help this process along. Let's innundate these members of the Judiciary with a document that actually initiates impeachment via the House of Representative's own rules. This legal document is as binding as if a State or if the House itself passed the impeachment resolution. This document is based on one which was successful in impeaching a federal official in the past. You can find it on IfP's website as a PDF. Kucinich says he needs us to keep building the groundswell of support for impeachment all over the country. He said he felt that our framing the issue of impeachment in terms of the Constitution is a principled choice, and ultimately more effective than just acting on anger. Here's video of Kucinich addressing the impeachment issue: Do-It-Yourself by downloading the memorial, filling in the relevant information (your name, state, etc.), and sending it in. The document also has you sending them to Impeach for Peace. That way, we can collect them all in one place, and deliver them all simultaneously (with cameras rolling) in July. Be a part of history.
