Impeach Bush?

Mainstream arguments for impeachment

As the crimes of the Bush administration mount, it becomes increasingly difficult to avoid talk of impeachment.

As a result of his continuing abuse of power, the impeachment option is making its way from the margin to the mainstream. Legal scholars on the left and the right argue that Bush may have committed "high crimes and misdemeanors," as stated in Article II, Section 4, of the Constitution.

The National Security Agency eavesdropping scandal has led Bruce Fein, who served as associate deputy attorney general under President Reagan, to conclude that this is "an impeachable offense," noting "It's more dangerous than Clinton's lying under oath."

Like the flouting of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, the bill of particulars against President Bush includes other violations of law.
