Tired of waiting for politicians to get the wheels going on the Impeach Bush-Cheney train? Get busy: Do it yourself!
Minnesota’s Impeach for Peace offers a great suggestion for self-starters:
There’s a little known clause of the Jefferson Manual which sets forth the various ways in which a president can be impeached. Only the House Judiciary Committee puts together the Articles of Impeachment, but that occurs after someone initiates the process. There are various ways in which the Committee can have the process initiated (most commonly by members of the House passing a resolution). But, one of the other methods put forth in the Jefferson Manual is for a citizen to submit a memorial.
So, we’ve researched a successful memorial (memorial of Luke Edward Lawless, from March 30, 1826, in regard to impeaching Federal Judge James H. Peck) and used it as a template for this memorial. Feel free to download it, print out TWO copies, fill in your relevant information in the blanks (name, State, etc.), and send one copy in.
The other copy hold on to until Oct. 12, when we’re having everyone send in a copy.
That’s right, we’re having everyone send it in on the same date to have the greatest effect. We hope to flood the Judiciary Committee with sacks of mail, and cause a newsworthy event, to further pressure the Committee to act on the memorials.
