| Weston has now joined Hebron, West Hartford, and Washington in standing up for a Constitutional government by impeaching Bush and Cheney. Tonight, Sept. 26, the Democratic State Central Committee will vote on its own impeachment resolution.
RESOLUTION OF THE WESTON DEMOCRATIC TOWN COMMITTEE
Weston, CT, September 19, 2007
We ask Congress to impeach President Bush and Vice President Cheney for the following reasons:
1) The Offense of Lying and Inducing America to Support a War: President Bush and Vice President Cheney intentionally misled the Congress and the American people regarding the threat from Iraq in order to justify a war against Iraq, and intentionally conspired with others to defraud the United States in connection with the war against Iraq in violation of Title 18 United States Code, Section 371.
2) The Offense of Reckless Indifference to the Lives and Welfare of American Troops: President Bush and Vice President Cheney failed to provide US soldiers with bulletproof vests or appropriately-armored vehicles and had no serious plan for the aftermath of the war, thus demonstrating a complete disregard for the welfare of the troops and the need for proper governance of a country after occupation. The result has been a never-ending war that will cost U.S. taxpayers over $1 trillion with over 3,000 U.S. soldiers killed and over 21,000 wounded.
3) The Offense of Torture: In Violation of U.S. Laws and Treaties President Bush and Vice President Cheney conspired to commit the torture of prisoners in violation of the "Federal Torture Act," Title 18 United States Code, Section 113C, the UN Torture Convention and the Geneva Convention.
4) The Offense of Wiretapping Surveillance in Defiance of the Law: President Bush and Vice President Cheney admitted to ordering the National Security Agency to conduct electronic surveillance of American civilians without seeking warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, duly constituted by Congress in 1978, in violation of Title 50 United States Code, Section 1805.
