Impeachment should be a hot topic in the halls of Congress and on the front pages of newspapers. But, since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi took impeachment of President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney "off the table," most Democrats, including Silicon Valley Reps. Anna Eshoo, Mike Honda and Zoe Lofgren, are marching to Pelosi's drum beat.
Because of the media's self-imposed gag order on impeachment, most Americans are unaware that articles of impeachment to indict Cheney have been submitted to the House Judiciary Committee. The House Resolution Articles (HR 333) were submitted by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, months ago. Since then, 19 Democrats, including Bay Area Reps. Lynn Woolsey of Santa Rosa, Barbara Lee of Oakland and Sam Farr of Salinas have signed on. (More here.)
