The Case for Impeachment: The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush from Office



This is well worth the 1 1/2 hours it takes to listen to it. Amazing
stuff.

Dave Lindorff and Barbara Olshansky are co-authors of "The Case for
Impeachment: The Legal Argument for Removing President George W. Bush
from Office. At a symposium held at Robin's Bookstore in Philadelphia,
the authors argue that President Bush's administration threatens basic
freedoms and the American system of checks and balances. The co-authors
review several of what they consider impeachable actions by President
Bush, including lying to Congress about the need to invade Iraq for
possession of weapons of mass destruction, refusing to cooperate with
the congressional 9/11 Commission probes, and obstructing justice in
protecting the person responsible for revealing that former Ambassodor
Joseph Wilson’s wife, Valerie Plame, was an undercover CIA operative.
The authors suggest that impeachment should be a key issue this election
year and impeachment legislation should be submitted to the next House
Judiciary Committee.
