Indict or Impeach?

[via Sideshow]
There's some blogstorming on the issue of whether the President will be subject to indictment for treason. I have a sneaky suspicion that we'd see a "night of long knives" before we'd see an indictment, and if we did it would be challenged on the rounds that it's Congress (aka the Republicans) which holds the power of impeachment, particularly for high crimes like Treason.

That said, I've been in favor of impeachment for some time now....

It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. Comments can be sent to elected representatives and local newspapers at your option. The participation page is at:

Since this campaign began, three members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents. Make your voice heard!
