58. This is Absolutely Insane; What the Fuck is She Waiting For?
Even if you COMPLETELY IGNORE the Iraq war, just a quick run-down of events, off the top of your head, will give you a number of crimes that are (WERE) impeachable: Fired many ( and a larger number apparently than has been covered) U.S. Attorneys during an Administration, because they would not prosecute innocent Democrats just before elections--illegal--or obstructed and then dropped ongoing investigations of guilty Republicans for massive bribery and corruption rings (Duke Cunningham, Jerry Lewis of Calif., etc.). Exposed the name of a current undercover CIA agent, (Valerie Plame), endangering the lives of anyone associated with her--treasonous. Turned much of the armed forces generally from a public Government institution under the watch of Congress, to a hugely wasteful set of corporations with Republican connections; billions of dollars missing, and services contracted for not provided. Turned the General Services Administration (Lurita Doan) from an agency that checks and approves contracting, to a center trying to get Republicans elected, with meetings for Republicans only. Had several members directly refuse requests, then subpoenas, to testify before Congress (Rove, Harriet Miers, etc.) and many others who never answered questions, "could not remember" anything (Alberto Gonzales, on and on). Refused to provide documents, e-mails, etc., as ordered. Interfered with, threatened, and fired Inspectors General who provided them with budgetary or scientific information they did not want, and censored final reports.

This is just off the top of my head! All these things are impeachable offenses, and if you remember, they impeached AND IMPRISONED the very much hated Spiro Agnew during Nixon's first term, for tax evasion and corruption/bribery. WHAT ELSE has the entire Cheney/Bush Administration been, but an endless stream of money-laundered corporate-profit connections, all illegal and treasonous?
