Vice President's office will look into impeachment report
Vice President Dick Cheney's office was looking into news that Articles of Impeachment will be filed by Rep. Dennis Kucinich for crimes which have not yet been identified by the Democratic Congressman. The news appeared on a blog last night produced by the Cleveland Plain Dealer newspaper.
"Cheney's deputy press secretary, Megan McGinn, said she couldn't comment on Kucinich's email because she hadn't seen it," wrote Sabrina Eaton at the Plain Dealer's blog Openers.
She added, "Asked whether Cheney had done anything he could be impeached for, McGinn replied: 'The vice president has had nearly 40 years of government service and has done so in an honorable fashion.'"
RAW STORY also contacted McGinn yesterday, and was told that the Vice President's office would look into the question.
Yesterday, the Washington Post's Mary Ann Akers at her blog The Sleuth revealed Kucinich's plans to file Articles of Impeachment against Cheney.
"This week I intend to introduce Articles of Impeachment with respect to the conduct of Vice President Cheney," Kucinich, who is running for president, wrote in a "dear colleague" letter to fellow Members of Congress. Kucinich noted that the actual charges themselves were "confidential" prior to their formal introduction to the House of Representatives.
Kucinich's congressional staff refused to comment on the subject, and his campaign staff told RAW STORY that only his congressional office could answer questions on the matter.
