Code Pink Alert!

Dear CODEPINKer,

CODEPINK activists have been steadily, faithfully, and creatively pressuring Congress to impeach the criminals in the White House, and we are starting to see results. Last week, at the Judiciary Committee hearing “Executive Power and its Constitutional Limitations,” impeachment was referenced dozens of times.

In her first days in power, Nancy Pelosi famously announced that impeachment was off the table, but on the popular television show The View this past Tuesday, she admitted that she would hold impeachment hearings if someone could prove that Bush committed a crime. We hope she watched last week as Dennis Kucinich, Liz Holtzman, and Vincent Bugliosi passionately enumerated Bush’s impeachable offenses at a Judiciary Committee hearing. Be sure to watch their stirring testimony — it will inspire and galvanize you.

Impeachment is the means the framers of the Constitution created to safeguard against an elected official’s subverting the best interests of our country. Even though Bush’s days in office are numbered, the damage he has done to our government may outlast his Presidency. Congress must fulfill its responsibility to hold this administration accountable for its flouting of the Constitution and international law. Please call the Judiciary Committee today at 202-225-3951 and demand an immediate impeachment hearing or inquiry.You can be documented in history as a citizen who pushed for impeachment–click here to sign our petition and be part of Dennis Kucinich’s official testimony. He will deliver the list of names on Friday, where it will be added to the Congressional record. Each name makes our case stronger — please add your endorsement today.

You don’t need to stop there; click here to join us at the DNC/RNC conventions in late August and early September where we will keep the pressure on both parties. As we’ve seen, our hard work is paying off.With peace and strength,

Alicia, Anne, Dana, Deidra, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jean, Jodie, Liz, Lori, Medea, Nancy, Rae and Tighe

P.S.

Last week we went on CODEPINK Alert after Obama’s trip to the Middle East resulted in talks of withdrawing troops from Iraq only to send them to Afghanistan. We countered with our piece on on Common Dreams and Huffington Post as well as sending out a survey to find out what you THINK and what you KNOW. If you haven’t yet, take the survey here or see the correct answers and some of our favorite comments here.
