Dennis Kucinich Raises Impeachment Over Libya

John Bresnahan and Jonathan Allen, Politico

A hard-core group of liberal House Democrats is questioning the constitutionality of U.S. missile strikes against Libya, with one lawmaker raising the prospect of impeachment during a Democratic Caucus conference call on Saturday.

Reps. Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.), Donna Edwards (Md.), Mike Capuano (Mass.), Dennis Kucinich (Ohio), Maxine Waters (Calif.), Rob Andrews (N.J.), Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), Barbara Lee (Calif.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) “all strongly raised objections to the constitutionality of the president’s actions” during that call, said two Democratic lawmakers who took part.

Kucinich, who wanted to bring impeachment articles against both former President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over Iraq — only to be blocked by his own leadership — asked why the U.S. missile strikes aren’t impeachable offenses.

Kucinich also questioned why Democratic leaders didn’t object when President Barack Obama told them of his plan for American participation in enforcing the Libyan no-fly zone during a White House Situation Room meeting on Friday, sources told Politico.

And liberals fumed that Congress hadn’t been formally consulted before the attack and expressed concern that it would lead to a third U.S. war in the Muslim world.

      I don't know if Boner has enough testosterone to achieve a "Boner". Why don't we have any politicians who have enough balls to produce a bill to impeach Obama. These politicians with no courage are allowing Obama to destroy this country. Don't these politicians love this country? It looks to me that all they want is to be able to collect their
      $175K a year pension.

      John Boehner proved himself to be a pink-tie RINO! He is a prime example of the GOP's main problem…he works for the privately-owned "UNITED STATES CORPORATION"! He follows the instructions of the "Corporations" foreign owners….NOT the American people! Sure smells like TREASON to me!

  2. I am afraid all we are gonna hear is just a lot of noise about impeachment. There have been impeachment petitions going on two years and nothing has happened yet. What will it take???? Maybe the right person and timing.

  3. I think impeachment is long over do. What is wrong with this country letting this President walk all over us?

  6. TALK, TALK, TALK. Impeach this closet Muslim, NOW!!!

  7. aniother reason to impeach him with botox face ,Biden,Reid , and many others.

  8. The word has been changed to protect the innocent.

  9. I have been in support of Impeaching Obama because he is a total corrupt politician and, of course, a liar. However, 99% of the Democrats in office are the other culpable party, plus add the support of a mainstream Media, which is just as corrupt and inept. Obama would not have been able to get away with all the dirty tricks if he wasn't for all the above. Since the liberals have taken over the country the crust of corruption is so thick, it is going to need a real fight to penetrate and cut away. We need Republicans and Conservatives with a lot of grit, and won't care to be polite and politically correct. They need to have Donald Trump's guts. We need politicians with guts that are going to stand up to the liberal haters. As soon as the liberal haters label someone racist, the good guys crumbled and fall in their trap.
    I want to make sure that if he was impeached, his policies also get thrown out, otherwise, we are helping to make the problem permanent. I actually would like to see him going to jail for all the fraudulent actions he has committed. I understand that because he was elected as POTUS, he can not legally be impeached if his birth certificate showed he was not born in the US because his mother was a US citizen. However, since he has been POTUS, has he committed acts that can be considered treasonous and illegal? We need the best legal minds and resolution to use everything that can be used to defeat the impostor in the White House.

  13. Several questions were raised against the U.S. missile strikes against Libya. This policy by America cannot is against the democratic laws. Thanks for sharing the latest news on this and keep posting more updates in your blog. We would like to hear more from you.

    • I am totally agree with the commenter above me. There are lot of questions raising about U.S. missile strikes against Libya. Every one know there is no bad policies by America against the democratic laws. Anyway nice sharing on current issue. Appreciate the thoughtful post.

  14. I am in favor with all those citizens who have been commenting above with the same sentiments of ‘throwing out’ or ‘impeaching’ the (Public Official) who is raising questions against United States and the democratic law , for me a person who is not sincere within his personal territories(spouse) , can be faithful to the country he represents. There are now many ways one can keep an eye on all those who are cheating on their spouse or leaking out confidential things. For details visit http://www.microstealth.com/
