I'm so glad I voted for him.

Four members of ImpeachforPeace.org met with the Honorable Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN 5th) in his Minneapolis offices Saturday morning, April 22nd to discuss the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

Early in the meeting, Ellison made clear that his opinion hasn't changed since he introduced a Resolution for the impeachment of President Bush as a Minnesota State Legislator by saying: "Impeachment should be on the table".

Today at Noon ET Kucinich will submit impeachment papers to John Conyers. There will be a press conference.

My sister-in-law forwarded something from Democrats.com that was a survey about impeachment.

It will be interesting to see how much momentum the impeachment rumblings gain. It seems to me as if I am hearing the word more and more each week!

Good job, Ellison!

I watched an interview with Kucinich on CNN. He was awesome.

Moto, is your sis pro-impeachment, as well?

I hope this is just the beginning of the rumblings. I have a feeling it will continue to grow. If enough peopple start demanding it, Pelosi will have to reconsider.

I agree Snave, I think we're approaching a threshold.

Jon Stewart did a good job with McCain last night.
Tonight we get Moyers cataloging the bad job the media did on the run up to war (but I can't find it in my local PBS listings) I really hope he goes into the administrations manufactured stories.

And now today, the breaking news as of about 11 a.m. Pacific time from msn.com:

"In rapid succession, congressional committees Wednesday ramped up their investigations of the Bush administration by approving a subpoena for Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and granting immunity to a key aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

"By 21-10, the House oversight committee voted to issue a subpoena to Rice to compel her story on the Bush administration's claim, now discredited, that Iraq was seeking uranium from Africa.

"Moments earlier in the committee chamber next door, the House Judiciary Committee voted 32-6 to grant immunity to Monica Goodling, Gonzales' White House liaison, for her testimony on why the administration fired eight federal prosecutors. The panel also unanimously approved — but did not issue — a subpoena to compel her to appear.

"Simultaneously across Capitol Hill, the Senate Judiciary Committee approved — but did not issue — a subpoena on the prosecutors' matter to Sara Taylor, deputy to presidential adviser Karl Rove.

""Provide the answers to the questions you could not recall last Thursday," Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., and ranking Republican Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, wrote to Gonzales on Wednesday.

"Specter's letter underscored that Congress' march against the administration isn't driven solely by Democrats. Only six members of the House Judiciary Committee voted against immunity for Goodling — all Republicans. And several Republican lawmakers have lobbed harsh criticism at Gonzales in the two days since Bush issued a fresh statement of support for him.

""I'll be as vigilant as ever in overseeing the Justice Department and working with other senators both Republicans and Democrats for accountability from the attorney general and the department he leads," said Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa.

"Wednesday's actions indicate that Democrats plan to increase their oversight of an administration that operated for six years under Republican congressional control."

Things are starting to heat up!!

Thank you Keith Ellison. Yes, the rumblings are getting stronger and louder.

I guess I will believe it when I see it.

There is too much at stake for the power in this country to allow such a thing.

The word "subpoena" is fast becoming my favorite word in the English language.

Whether or not these investigations lead to impeachment, they will at the very least (hopefully) bring to light the actions of this criminal administration.

In the meantime, may the rumblings and grumblings grow.
