We are writing with an urgent appeal to join a group of prominent Americans who will appear on the steps of the U.S. Capitol Building on Thursday, April 19th to call for the impeachment of President George W. Bush. The appearance of this distinguished group can be a galvanizing catalyst.
There is a moment now when impeachment can begin.
The millions of people who thought they were repudiating the war when they voted out the Republicans this past November increasingly feel betrayed and angry. Far from deterred, Bush is moving forward with new war plans. He faces almost no opposition to a strike against Iran.
The more public pressure for impeachment builds, the more Bush's war options will become limited. The more his war crimes are exposed and opposed, the greater the impetus for his removal and repudiation.
The Bush Administration has promoted the end of habeas corpus, officially sanctioned torture, and declared the possibility of war without end. From Katrina to the latest purging of Federal Prosecutors their disdain for law has no bounds, and continues.
In times of great emergency, the impossible becomes possible. That time is now. Be there on the Capitol steps.
