Call for Impeachment on Capitol Hill by Prominent Americans
For immediate release, April 23, 2007- A group of prominent citizens will gather at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, April 25th to speak in support of impeachment proceedings against President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard B. Cheney.
The coalition includes Washington State Senator Eric Oemig, who has introduced a resolution for impeachment in that state’s Senate. Mayors present will include Rocky Anderson of Salt Lake City and John Shields of Nyack, NY. Former government official Daniel Ellsberg, who released the classified Pentagon Papers which revealed that the Vietnam war could not be won and would lead to many more casualties; and retired Army Colonel Ann Wright, a career diplomat who quit in protest the day the war in Iraq began are also members of the coalition.
“There comes a time when voices of conscience must sound the alarm and recommend the remedy,” says Debra Sweet, Director of The World Can’t Wait-Drive Out the Bush Regime, and a member of the impeachment coalition.
The coalition believes that there are sufficient grounds to begin impeachment proceedings in the House against both President Bush and Vice President Cheney for the commission of high crimes and misdemeanors including using fraud to persuade Congress to authorize the Iraq War.
Also participating in the event will be actors, producers, playwrights, poets, authors and journalists, including Chris Hedges who was part of The New York Times team that won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of global terrorism and John Nichols, a well known political blogger who also writes for The Nation magazine.
Leading anti-war voices will also be present, including Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey was killed during his service in Iraq and Andy Shallal, an Iraqi-American businessman.
