A former state senator will present a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Cheney to the Multnomah County Democratic Central Committee February 9.
The resolution passed the Committee's agenda subcomittee last month.
It charges that Bush and Cheney's (1) unprovoked and misrepresented invasion of Iraq violated the UN charter, (2) their actions contrary to acts of Congress volated their oaths of office and (3) their unlawful detention and torture of prisoners violated the US Constitution, acts of Congress and the Geneva Conventions.
These actions, the Central Committee is asked to declare, reach the level of High Crimes and Misdeameanors while in office sufficient to constitute articles of impeachment before the House of Representatives.
The resolution will be presented by former Democratic State Senator Vern Cook, an attorney in Gresham. The Central Committee will met at 7PM, Thursday, February 9 at the Hollywood Senior Center, 1820 NE 40th Avenue (off Sandy Blvd).
