Wexler Impeachment Update

I thought I'd share this letter that I received today from Congressman Robert Wexler.

Are you listening Blumenhauer & Wu...?
Dear _____

Last night, I took to the floor of the House of Representatives and outlined our case as to why this Congress must hold immediate hearings on Rep. Kucinich's Articles of Impeachment.

I didn't do it alone: I was armed with nearly 200,000 signatures of support from you and so many others. Please watch the video of this speech and forward it to as many people as possible. I've posted it on the front page of www.WexlerWantsHearings.com

This morning, I delivered letters to all of my colleagues in the House of Representatives, urging them to support Cheney Impeachment Hearings. You can read a copy of both the letter to my colleagues as well as the letter to Chairman Conyers I am asking them to sign at:

Additionally, I have delivered to my colleagues in the Judiciary Committee a list of names who have signed up at www.WexlerWantsHearings.com. We now have almost 200,000 patriotic Americans dedicated to this cause.

We are beginning to make some progress. I have urged the Democratic Leadership to enforce the subpoenas being ignored by Harriet Miers and White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten by holding them in contempt of Congress.

This fight is not over. You must continue the pressure on your representatives and the media, or Congress will take no notice. That would be a historic mistake - one we must prevent Congress from making.

We stand at a critical juncture in our efforts. Forget all of those arguments that it is too late or that we have run out of time. You can't run the clock out on our Constitution. Those of us dedicated to this fight - Rep. Dennis Kucinich, the online community, and millions of patriotic Americans - will keep the pressure on.

I will be furiously lobbying my fellow members of Congress to get behind these efforts and sign onto my letter to Chairman Conyers.

Please continue to spread the word and help deliver accountability to the corrupt Bush-Cheney administration.

With great respect,

Congressman Robert Wexler

If only Oregon had "representatives" with the courage and conviction of Rep. Wexler.

pros and 16.Jan.2008 23:18


my bets are, if anyone dares touch cheney, that he will be impeached... only to become the new head of another (and even less accountable) group of crooks like halliburton. he'll get a raise and there will be (surprise surprise) no justice.
