Thanks to your help, already 19 Congress Members are cosponsoring H. Res. 333, articles of impeachment against Cheney. And an additional bill, H. Res. 589 has been introduced proposing the impeachment of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. That bill already has 28 cosponsors, and Congressman Steve Cohen, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, is working with Bruce Fein, Deputy Attorney General under Ronald Reagan, to draft articles of impeachment against Gonzales.
Congress Members will be far more likely to take up the impeachment of Cheney or Gonzales when they return to Washington on September 4th if they have heard from you while they’re home for the month of August. Please phone, Email, and fax your Congress Member’s local district office right away. Ask for a meeting. Stop by uninvited. Encourage them to sign onto both H Res 333 and H Res 589 and/or to introduce their own bill for impeachment. You are more likely to persuade them with a face-to-face conversation this month than when they are back in D.C. in September.
