Conyers: If Three More Reps Will Support Impeachment, We’ll Proceed

Via the BRAD BLOG — at an appearance hosted by the Progressive Democrats (PDA) in San Diego yesterday, House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers signaled a new willingness to proceed on impeaching both Pres. George Bush and Vice Pres. Dick Cheney, according to sources in the room.

“What are we waiting for? Let’s take them out!”
— Rep. Conyers

In a report on the event posted to the PDA website by Judy Hess, a member of the San Diego chapter who helped organize the event, Conyers opened his remarks by referring to a pro-impeachment banner near the stage:

“What are we waiting for? Let’s take them out!” The room jumped with applause and shouts of approval.

Hess also reported that Conyers said he is seeking additional support for impeachment from his colleagues:

In his remarks, he said he needs three more Representatives to contact him in support of impeachment in order to move forward, with or without Nancy Pelosi.

Radio talk show host Bree Walker was also at the event and confirms Hess’ account, via AfterDowningStreet.com.

In January, at an anti-war rally on the National Mall, Conyers said, “We can fire them,” but when he was asked about it later, he waffled. That could happen here too, but if you support impeachment, this might be a propitious time to let your House member know.

    I’ve written to Nancy Pelosi, but writing to my Congressperson, Mrs Mean Jean Schmidt is a waste. That rubber stamp is surgically attached to Bushco and won’t even give me an acknowledgement that she has received my communications. On any subject.
    Ever. And they’re not snotty.
    What do other people in similar straits do?

    Back in January, i followed the “Impeach for Peace” site and printed the impeachment letters they had on the site.

    One i sent to my rep, Emerson and one to Pelosi.
    Nada, Zip, nothing back from either one.

    And both letters were sent Certified Mail.

    Conyers is just blowing smoke out his you know what.

    The Dems aren’t going to impeach the Smirking Idiot Chimp or his handler, President Cheney.

    AIPAC has got Congress in their back pocket and they’re calling the shots.

    Maybe after Iran has been turned into a radioactive wasteland, impeachment proceedings might start, but it will be TOO late, since martial law will already have been declared.

    See you in GITMO!!!
