Impeach Cheney


They are NOT going to table Kucinich's resolution to impeach!

I'm listening to the play by play.

From Raw Story:

(Update at bottom: House poised to kill impeachment resolution, vote to table likely to pass)

(And Dewey Defeats Truman)

This is getting interesting the rethugs changed their votes to allow the resolution to go ahead. What are they thinking? I think they are trying to do too much second guessing....

UPDATE: It's going to the judiciary committee! Go Conyers!
Update: See PiNY's comment. Conyers and the committee w0n't do a d*mned thing.

Thanks for following this with any more updates: Votes, key numbers, and links to any comments/explanations from DNC-GOP leadership on what they did/why.

Thanks again.

the res came up. Steny Hoyer immediately made a motion to table.

The vote was held open and the repubs starting going from yes (to table) to nay (to go ahead)
I'm listening to Randi Rhodes, she's watching C-span while doing her show.

At one point there was a majority to table the bill, but then the votes started changing. They are now voting on whether to send it to the judiciary committee.

I wish I could feel as enthusiastic as you, Sorghum, but I read a while ago that Nancy has Conyers dick in her pocket and told him there will be no impeachment hearings....ever. Hoyer moved to punt the privileged resolution to the Judiciary Committee as a way of defeating debate and making sure it would go no further. And Conyers gets to be the bad guy. Wish he would get his dick back, tell Nancy to fuck off and announce the hearings, but I don't think it will happen.

Me too.
The fact that this even got on the floor and was not tabled should be on the news, but it is missing most everywhere.

Sorghum: Brittney was required to pay K-Fed's legal bills. Surely you can see why the media was distracted.
