Efforts to initiate the impeachment of President George W. Bush

Since President George W. Bush took office in 2001, numerous local governments, party organizations, and members of Congress have called for impeachment proceedings against both him and members of his administration. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) introduced a resolution late in 2005 calling for a special committee to investigate a variety of allegations against Bush and possibly make a recommendation for impeachment to the House. Statements by both Conyers, and Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), however, have indicated that neither plans to pursue impeachment in the 110th Congress. Nonetheless, numerous state and local governments and party organizations have considered and passed resolutions addressing the impeachment of Bush and other members of the administration over the past several years. This page covers these efforts, as well as congressional action related to the matter.

McKinney on Conyers investigations "they say they aren't even going to issue subpoenas."

Will other members of congress support the action Congresswoman McKinney has brought forth?

At the table in what could be considered her impeachment "war room" the question is brought up a number of times.

Mike, an advisor to McKinney, mentions, "Conyers was supposed to have investigations. They were chomping at the bit 6 months ago to do subpoenas."

McKinney quietly replies, "Now they say they aren't even going to issue subpoenas."
