    Kucinich May Get Hearing On Impeachment Resolution
    By Molly K. Hooper, CQ Staff
    The House Judiciary Committee may let anti-war Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich present his case for impeaching President Bush before the August recess, the panel’s chairman said Monday.

    Chairman John Conyers Jr. , D-Mich., said Judiciary will take a broad look at the behavior of the Bush administration, and Kucinich can lay out his arguments as part of that as-yet unscheduled hearing.

    Kucinich, D-Ohio, intends to formally offer a resolution on Tuesday that accuses Bush of lying to Congress in order to get approval to invade Iraq.

    Conyers said he wants a public discussion of the issues being raised by Kucinich, but does not plan to take any action on the resolution. “We’re not doing impeachment, but he can talk about it,” the chairman said.

    He said such a hearing would continue oversight of the executive branch that has included hearings on the exposure of the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame and the firing of U.S. attorneys.

    The resolution that Kucinich has told the House to expect on Tuesday will be his fourth impeachment measure.

    An earlier resolution against Bush (HRes 1258) and two against Vice President Dick Cheney (H Res 333, H Res 799) were referred to Conyers’ committee, which took no action on them.

    Bush and Cheney leave office on Jan. 20, 2009.

    Maybe Conyers should spend more time worrying about how his wife is connected to Detroit's political scandal.


    Hooray for sludge contracts.
