Impeach George Bush and Dick Cheney


Below are reasons why it is our duty to ask Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney. The first four reasons were written by former US rep Elizabeth Holtzman. The last seven were written by me. Click here to send these to your congressman and senators. Then you can paste my other reasons or your own where it says "Add your own personal message to your Congress:"

Here are the reasons for impeachment:

1) The Offense of Lying and Inducing America to Support a War
President Bush and Vice President Cheney intentionally misled the Congress and the American people regarding the threat from Iraq in order to justify a war against Iraq, and intentionally conspired with others to defraud the United States in connection with the war against Iraq in violation of Title 18 United States Code, Section 371.

2) The Offense of Reckless Indifference to the Lives and Welfare of American Troops
President Bush and Vice President Cheney failed to provide US soldiers with bulletproof vests or appropriately-armored vehicles and had no serious plan for the aftermath of the war, thus demonstrating a complete disregard for the welfare of the troops and the need for proper governance of a country after occupation. The result has been a never-ending war that will cost U.S. taxpayers over $1 trillion with over 3,000 U.S. soldiers killed and over 21,000 wounded.

3) The Offense of Torture in Violation of U.S. Laws and Treaties
President Bush and Vice President Cheney conspired to commit the torture of prisoners in violation of the "Federal Torture Act," Title 18 United States Code, Section 113C, the UN Torture Convention and the Geneva Convention.

4) The Offense of Wiretapping Surveillance in Defiance of the Law
President Bush and Vice President Cheney admitted to ordering the National Security Agency to conduct electronic surveillance of American civilians without seeking warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, duly constituted by Congress in 1978, in violation of Title 50 United States Code, Section 1805.

These provisions are detailed in "The Impeachment of George W. Bush: A Practical Guide for Concerned Citizens," by former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman.

Torture is also a violation of the 8th amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

I would also include the following offenses:

5) The Offense of authorizing the use of military force in Iraq without official declaration of war by Congress as required by the Constitution

The Offense of the use of non-military forces (such as Blackwater) for military purposes which are not accountable under Iraqi law, U.S. law or military law

7) The Offense of the arrest and detention of Jose Padilla, in violation of his constitutional right to trial by jury under the fifth amendment
The vice president also illegally initiated kidnappings, secret detentions, and torture in Eastern European prisons of suspected international terrorists.

8) The Offense of authorizing, approving, and signing into law the Patriot Act because it unconstitutionally allows nationwide search warrants non-specific to any given location, nor subject to any local judicial oversight, which is a violation of the fourth amendment

9) The Offense of illegally blocking the implementation of legislation voted into law by Congress for the building of a wall or fence to protect America from terrorists, illegal aliens, and drug smugglers

10) The Offense of not pardoning U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean and for not holding the Department of Homeland Security accountable for lying to Congress about this case

11) The Offense of pardoning Lewis Libby
