Harper's Magazine hosted a forum titled "Is There a Case for Impeachment?" Panelists talked about the historical provision for and definition of impeachment in the U.S. Constitution, abuses of executive power and meaning of high crimes and misdemeanors, actions taken by the Bush administration in pursuit of various national security policies, congressional responsibilities for oversight, and historical impeachments of presidents. They also talked about specific examples of “executive tyranny” outlined in proposed articles of impeachment authored by Mr. Ratner ranging from illegal domestic surveillance, misleading Congress and the American people about the need for war in Iraq, and abuses of international treaties governing the treatment of prisoners and detainees. Following the presentation auestions from the audience were answered in a town hall forum moderated by Sam Seder.
The conclusion is that there is a case for Impeachment against both Bush and Cheney.
