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.

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich: “Impeach President George W. Bush!”
On July 10, 2008, a 2 PM press conference was called, on Capitol Hill, by Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH). At that time, he explained that later in the afternoon he intended to offer in the House of Representatives a single Resolution entitled, “An Article of Impeachment of President George W. Bush.” Rep. Kucinich charged that President Bush had “fraudulently obtained” authority from the U.S. Congress “to commit U.S. troops to combat in Iraq.” He detailed, for the media, some of the lies that led the country into that immoral and illegal conflict. Rep. Kucinich underscored: “I believe in the Constitution!”
