87. Can you clarify? In Friday's hearing "around" impeachment ...
... the point was made that the first impeachment in our history was of a member of the legislature.

The point came up because there was a discussion about impeaching both Bush and Cheney, and it was brought out that Cheney claims not to be a member of the executive branch when it suits him (he claims to be a member of the legislative branch). And the point was made that Cheney could be impeached as a member of the legislative branch, just as that first man had been, historically.

Why can't Pelosi be impeached? Does the fact that she's Speaker, as well as an elected member of the House, prohibit it?

Not being argumentative here. Just trying to understand it.
