Kucinich moves to impeach Cheney
by UPI

WASHINGTON - Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, introduced articles of impeachment Tuesday against Vice President Dick Cheney.

Kucinich, also a long shot Democratic presidential candidate, released an 18-page document at a news conference on Capitol Hill, Voice of America reported.

"These articles are about the conduct of the vice president of the United States, that he deceived the people of the U.S. to take this country into a war, that he continues to exhibit a pattern of conduct that could take this country into another war based on false pretenses," Kucinich said.

The articles' main charges are that Cheney used manipulated intelligence to win support for the war in Iraq and falsely claimed a connection between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaida.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi opposes any move to impeach President Bush or the vice president and is almost certain to thwart Kucinich.

"As much as I admire the speaker, as much as I voted to support her, I feel that it is my obligation as a member of Congress to introduce these articles of impeachment, and I believe the American people will be the final arbiters as to whether or not these articles should go forward," Kucinich said.
