Left of Center: By Yukkione: Jefferson's Manual
Jefferson's Manual

Time : 6:08 PM

We as citizens don't have to wait for politicians to start impeachment procedings.
"Jefferson's Manual" is an interpretive guide to parliamentary procedure, and is included (along with the Constitution) in the bound volumes of the Rules of the House of Representatives. It is ratified by each congress (including the current one), and has been updated continuously through the history of our democracy. The section covering impeachment lists the acceptable vehicles for bringing impeachment motions to the floor of the House.

Before the House Judiciary Committee can put together the Articles of Impeachment, someone must initiate the impeachment procedure. Most often, this occurs when members of the House pass a resolution. Another method outlined in the manual, however, is for individual citizens to submit a memorial for impeachment.

Thanks Libby

Comments for Jefferson's Manual
We need to this ourselves, because the Democratic leadership has already declared they aren't going to do a thing about the crop of crimes perpetrated by the Bush administration.

Your right Lew. I wonder if it's because they fear losing the middle. Ahh but we live in a time when accountability means nothing.

Wow, this is the third blog in my stroll this morning that has had something on this issue posted. May have to keep it rolling with my own.

Um, did any suggest doing something though? Or was the plan another year of discussion?

I think it's politics.

The Democrats will gain alot and lose very little by blasting the admin with a million investigations.

I think their afraid that if they impeach, they will turn Bush into a more sympathetic character.

I think they've written off this presidency and are more worried about 2008 than hanging something on Bush.


so - what's stopping 'world can't wait' from submitting impeachment paperwork?

just curious why noone to date has done anything...

They are on a meltdown of their own doing this time...all we have to do is let it just keep going. Because they aren't finished...not by a longshot. There is sooo much more 'stuff' that is going to unfold.

I agree with mike. It would take a lot of time and energy right now and we're in a war we gotta get out of before getting into something like that. I want the bastard in prison as much as anyone, but I don't think it'll happen any time soon.

How pathetic is it that this White House has committed so many atrocities that we don't have time to impeach the SOB. I mean in a way, you can't just impeach one. You'd have to impeach the whole lot and fire all their staff.
