The Washington Post's The Sleuth blog is reporting that Rep Dennis Kucinich is planning on filing articles of impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney. He sent out a letter yesterday morning to House colleagues to inform them of his intent. While Kucinich originally planned to file this week, in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech shootings, he has decided to postpone until at least next week.
I've always admired Kucinich for being an unabashed liberal. He is the only Democratic candidate for President that believes in full marriage equality. He also voted against the war in Iraq and has held both Republican and Democratic politicians up for scrutiny as the war has denigrated into a morass. He's also the only presidential candidate I've ever given money... During the 2004 elections, he was the last Democrat standing against Kerry's candidacy. He officially terminated his campaign at the convention.
Unfortunately, most pundits seem to agree that Kucinich's impeachment plan won't get very far. According to the blog, one Democratic aide commented, "We'll see a Kucinich Administration before we'll see a Cheney impeachment." Personally, I'd take either.
A copy of Kucinich's letter to colleagues is after the fold.
