TheHill reported Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.) told Vice President Dick Cheney to “resign or face impeachment” Thursday night as three more House Democrats lent their support to a plan to impeach the vice president.
Go ahead. The Reppublicans screwed up by impeaching Clinton when they knew no Democrats would vote to convict. Go ahead and make the same mistake.“The vice president holds himself above the law, and it is time for the Congress to enforce the law,” McDermott said in a floor speech. “For the good of the nation, the vice president could leave office immediately.” McDermott was one of three House Democrats to come out in favor of impeachment Thursday, along with Reps. Keith Ellison (Minn.)
The Muslimand Hank Johnson (Ga.). Including the three lawmakers, seven members in June have shown new support for impeaching Cheney.
