High Crimes & Misdemeanors

Anthony has been kind enough to let me post on his blog, so let me begin with this: the counts I would cite for the impeachment of Richard Cheney and George W. Bush.

  1. Illegal Wiretapping [for FOX viewers, that means without the warrants required by existing law]
  2. Elimination of Habeas Corpus [for anyone they label a “terrorist”]
  3. Use of Federal Agencies to Promote his Party [as in firing US Attorneys to replace them with loyal Bushies]
  4. Use of Signing Statements to Subvert the Will of Congress and enforce laws – or not- as he sees fit
  5. Obstruction of Justice [by refusing to comply with subpoenas]
  6. Unitary Executive Theory & Practice [under which terms he is the Final Decider for as long as he can make a war last]
  7. Misrepresentation of Evidence to Wage War [specifically in the case of Iraq]
  8. Release of Formerly Classified Information for Political Purposes [as in the case of Valerie Plame]
  9. Refusal to Honor International Conventions & Treaties entered into by the USA [for example, authorization of torture]
  10. Protecting Members of his Administration who have Lied under Oath [at minimum, Libby & Gonzales]
