Ellison Says Principles Are Behind Effort to Impeach Cheney

Reprint rights
By Abdi Aynte (with contributions from Eric Black) , Minnesota Monitor

Ellison cites Cheney's abuses of power as reason to impeach.

Some people say the attempt to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney isn't anything more than a charade by far-left Democrats.

That's not the case for U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, who gets animated about the subject. The freshman Democrat from Minneapolis has joined a dozen or so lawmakers as co-sponsors of a bill to impeach Cheney for "high crimes and misdemeanors."

The alleged crimes are yet to be spelled out by Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, who sponsored the bill late last month. But Ellison accuses Cheney of "abusing his powerand abstracting information."
