Pelosi Putting Impeachment Back On The Table... For Real?


Last month Nancy Pelosi was on The View hawking her new book and pushing the Democrats' congressional accomplishments-- they raised the minimum wage, increased veterans' benefits, passed a stem cell research bill, passed an equal pay for equal work law-- and someone asked her why she has taken impeachment off the table. Her excuses were embarrassing but she said, "If somebody had a crime that the president had committed, that would be a different story." I guess she was asleep when Dennis Kucinich laid them out for Congress.

Maybe she'll pay more attention to John Amato, over at Crooks & Liars, who is reporting on Ron Suskind's new book, The Way of the World: A Story of Truth and Hope in an Age of Extremism and the evidence it presents-- undeniable evidence-- of impeachable crimes Bush and Cheney committed. Watch the startling clip with David Gregory, Meredith Viera and Ron Suskind on NBC's Today. If Pelosi watches it, it will show her that:

- When Bush was told that the CIA's top source in Iraq, Saddam's chief of intelligence (Habbush, no relation) had told them there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Bush asked that he be told instead to give them something them could use to bolster their case for attacking Iraq; then he cut off the lines of communication;

-Bush ordered the forging of a fake better from Habbush to "prove" the nonexistent links between al-Qaeda and Iraq. The forged letter claims Mohammed Atta was "training" for 9/11 in Iraq-- at the very time the FBI can prove he was in the U.S. and Spain.

Is this going to be enough for Pelosi to put impeachment back on the table? Of course not. Does she know about it? Absolutely; it's even in the Politico today-- and, better yet, Dan Froomkin's writing about it. When the American people stand up and demand impeachment in no uncertain terms, she'll follow along. That's her style of "leadership." It's hard to believe that anyone in her San Francisco district is going to vote for her in November when they can make the ultimate political statement and elect Cindy Sheehan in her place.

Impeach Pelosi too!!!! She is an accomplice and an accessory after the fact. Instead of going on the various mindless morning chit-chat shows, she could go on QVC and model an orange jumpsuit and handcuffs. Put her on trial for treason right along with her pal Bush and be done with her and her felonious kind.
