Conyers seeks to censure Bush in Congress

WASHINGTON, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A leading Congressional Democrat wants to censure President George W. Bush for misleading Congress over Iraq.

Ranking House Judiciary Democrat Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has introduced a motion to censure Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for providing misleading information to Congress before the Iraq war, failing to respond to written questions and potential violations of international law, reported Tuesday.

The resolutions were introduced Sunday with a third resolution -- HR 635 -- to create a Select Committee to investigate the administration's intent to go to war prior to congressional authorization. The committee would also be charged with examining manipulation of pre-war intelligence, thwarting congressional oversight and retaliatory attacks against critics, said.

The Select Committee seeks to subpoena Bush and other members of his administration to see if impeachable offenses have been committed. If passed, HR 635 would create a select committee which could potentially recommend articles of impeachment against both the president and vice president, the Web site said.

House Resolution 636 seeks to censure the president for failing to respond to repeated requests for information on pre-war intelligence, possible war crimes against detainees and violation of international law, and retaliatory action against critics of the administration. House Resolution 637 seeks censure Cheney for the same alleged abuses, it said.

How does Clinton's lying about his stupidity with Lewinsky equate to lying about reasons for war, hundreds of dead, the debilitating national debt, healthcare crisis, inability to manage national disaster, the failure of Social Security.... and the list grows. How in the world does this compare to Lewinsky ? America cannot tolerate anymore of what is fundamentally HW Bush's botched management. What's the only constitional method we citizens have inorder to stop this hemorrhaging. Censure Bush now. Or impeach him for malfeasance. Any businessman who lost that much money ( deficit ) would be under criminal investigation in a heart beat. Did Nixon say he'd be back ?

The constitution and bill of rights is all we have in this country to acknowledge the moral wrights and acknowleding our creator that we the people who hold these truths to be true. know one is above this truth,so if you started cutting into and slicing off picesies than it becomes useless. NOW we have to start all over again starting from the top . when the head moves the body will follow as long as it don t affect the motion of uion in which it was created. Know this our creator is watching on our authority how we clean the mess that we made , lets clean,clear,cleans ALL the debris thats in Goverment .thank you for your time.
