Rep. Wexler Will Urge the Judiciary Committee to Hold Immediate Hearings on Impeachment!!!
Rep. Robert Wexler sent his constituents this beautiful and admirable Email today:
As a person who supports holding this Administration accountable for their deceptive actions, you may be interested to
know about the recent votes in the House regarding H.Res. 333, "Impeaching Richard B. Cheney, Vice President of the
United States, for high crimes and misdemeanors."
I share your belief that Vice President Cheney must answer for his deceptive actions in office, particularly with regard
to the preparations for the Iraq war and the revelation of the identity of covert agent Valerie Plame Wilson as part of
political retribution against her husband. That is why I voted against the motion to table debate on H.Res. 333. Along
with only 85 other Democrats, I opposed tabling the measure and supported beginning immediate debate and a vote on the
Cheney impeachment resolution. The vote on tabling the Kucinich resolution was rejected, and the House subsequently
voted to refer the matter to the Judiciary Committee.
Vice President Dick Cheney and the Bush Administration have demonstrated a consistent pattern of abusing the law and
misleading Congress and the American people. We see the consequences of these actions abroad in Iraq and at home through
the violations of our civil liberties. The American people are served well with a legitimate and thorough impeachment
inquiry. I will urge the Judiciary Committee to schedule impeachment hearings immediately and not let this issue languish as it
has over the last six months. Only through hearings can we bring begin to correct the abuses of Dick Cheney and the Bush
Administration; and, if it is determined in these hearings that Vice President Cheney has committed High Crimes and
Misdemeanors, he should be impeached and removed from office. It is time for Congress to expose the multitude of misdeeds of the Administration, and I am hopeful that the Judiciary
Committee will expeditiously begin an investigation of this matter.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions or concerns. I sincerely appreciate your input and hope
that you will feel free to contact me anytime I may be of assistance to you. In addition, I hope you find my website (http://wexler.house.gov
) a valuable resource in keeping up with events in Washington and in South Florida.
With warm regards,
