Chuck Hagel in 2007: 'Before this is over, you might see calls for (Bush's) impeachment.'

In 2007, Chuck Hagel brought up the idea of impeaching George Bush. http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2007/03/06/10862/hagel-impeachment/

According to a new report in Esquire magazine, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) has suggested that Congress may consider the impeachment of President Bush before his term ends:

The president says, I dont care. Hes not accountable anymore, Hagel says, measuring his words by the syllable and his syllables almost by the letter. Hes not accountable anymore, which isnt totally true. You can impeach him, and before this is over, you might see calls for his impeachment. I dont know. It depends how this goes.

The conversation beaches itself for a moment on that word impeachment spoken by a conservative Republican from a safe Senate seat in a reddish state. Its barely even whispered among the serious set in Washington, and it rings like a gong in the middle of the sentence, even though it flowed quite naturally out of the conversation he was having about how everybody had abandoned their responsibility to the country, and now there was a war going bad because of it.
