“Pelosi says House Judiciary may hold hearings on Kucinich impeachment resolution”
That’s the headline of an item today on Politico.com, which says:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said this morning that the House Judiciary Committee may hold hearings on an impeachment resolution offered by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio).
Kucinich is expected to offer a “privileged resolution” this afternoon calling on the House to look at whether President Bush should be removed from office for lying to Congress and the American public when he sought congressional approval back in 2002 for taking military action to invade Iraq and overthrow Saddam Hussein.
Maybe this is just a bone from the Dem leadership to make up for the Senate’s rape of the Constitution yesterday.
Politico adds that Pelosi said:
“This is a Judiciary Committee matter, and I believe we will see some attention being paid to it by the Judiciary Committee,” Pelosi told reporters. “Not necessarily taking up the articles of impeachment because that would have to be approved on the floor, but to have some hearings on the subject.”
Make of it what you will. Here’s the linky:
