Articles of Impeachment Against George W. Bush (Paperback)
Will George W. Bush be impeached? It's not likely as long as the Stepford Republicans are in power in Congress.
But that doesn't mean that the case for impeachment should not be made and argued before the American public. If there ever was an administration that has betrayed the Constitution, our national security, and the laws of our land, it's the Bush Administration.
Impeachment is a process that begins in the House Judiciary Committee, proceeds to the full House, which then recommends that the Senate try the President.
But first the House Judiciary Committee must draw up articles of impeachment. In essence, this is what an indictment would consist of in a criminal trial.
This 140-page book released in March of 2006 provides the articles of impeachment against Bush that could be referred from the House Judiciary Committee to the full House.
In the forward to the indictment against Bush, William Goodman, the Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights notes: "The message was clear: Opposition and dissent were treason and concern for constitutional rights was a technicality, a phantom that played into the hand of terrorists. Out of this antagonism to the Constitution that had long predated the attacks of 9/11...grew the full-blown attack on the system of checks and balances and the Bill of Rights that the following articles detail."
Of course, BuzzFlash has long advocated that a just impeachment would take the unprecedented step of trying Bush and Cheney together. After all, Bush couldn't talk about his disastrous performance before, after and during 9/11 without Dick Cheney at his side when they talked, without being sworn in, to the tepid "independent" 9/11 Commission. As long as we are making the case, let's go for a two-fer!
Remember, if Bush were somehow to actually be impeached by himself, that would make the real president, Cheney...well, that would make him the real real president.
So, the corrupt Republican Congress won't take action against a corrupt and law breaking presidency, but that doesn't mean we should ignore the indictable offenses. This book is a primer on how the legal case would be made to remove George W. Bush from office.
And, please, take the whole crooked bunch with Bush.
By the way, the Wall Street Journal just recently covered the issue of impeachment, so talk of it has now gone mainstream.
Don't get your hopes up, but be prepared.
The Center for Constitutional Rights (originally "Law Center for Constitutional Rights") was founded in November 1966 by attorneys Morton Stavis, Arthur Kinoy, Ben Smith and William Kunstler, whose legal work representing civil rights activists in Mississippi convinced them of the need for a privately funded legal center to undertake innovative, impact litigation on behalf of popular movements for social justice.
The Center for Constitutional Rights is a non-profit legal and educational organization dedicated to protecting and advancing the rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
