Why impeachment is off the table By Michael Chavers

Original Content at


Well maybe it is a little clearer why the first thing Pelosi did after she became speaker of the house was to take impeachment off the table.

According to the Washington Post beginning in 2002 leading lawmakers both Republican and Democrat where briefed on the so called enhanced interrogation techniques including waterboarding. The lawmakers who held oversight roles during that time period included Nancy Pelosi, Jane Harman, Bob Graham, John Rockefeller IV, Porter Goss, and Pat Roberts.

The only one that objected the technique was Representative Jane Harmon.

So it looks as though Speaker Pelosi and other Democrats have colluded with the Bush administrations torture techniques because she knew about them but did not report them.

1. I share much of your Bio and agree with your post... We have a huge...
leadership problem in the Democratic party that must be fixed if we are to take back this country and restore it to what it should be.

2. Exactly.
The leadership of both houses is complicit both by their silence and by their votes in support of Bushite laws and policies. To impeach Bush is to impeach themselves.
