      Kucinich to press for Dick Cheney impeachment
      Posted by Sabrina Eaton April 17, 2007 17:13PM

      Cleveland congressman Dennis Kucinich sent his
      Democratic colleagues a two-sentence email this
      morning announcing imminent plans to introduce
      "Articles of Impeachment with respect to the conduct
      of Vice President Cheney."

      "Please have your staff contact my office," the
      missive continued,"if you would like to receive a
      confidential copy of the document prior to its
      introduction in the House."

      Kucinich press secretary Natalie Laber refused to
      comment on Kucinich's email or to provide any more
      information about his efforts to push for Cheney's
      impeachment. The Plain Dealer obtained the email from
      a different Democratic congressional office.

      Cheney's deputy press secretary, Megan McGinn, said
      she couldn't comment on Kucinich's email because she
      hadn't seen it.

      Asked whether Cheney had done anything he could be
      impeached for, McGinn replied: "The vice president has
      had nearly 40 years of government service and has done
      so in an honorable fashion."

      While Democratic activists have called for impeachment
      of Cheney, President Bush and other administration
      officials, Democratic leaders in the House and Senate
      have not expressed interest in doing so.
