has launched a grassroots effort to elect a Democratic Congress in 2006 thereby enabling the impeachment of George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney. No matter how compelling the evidence against them is, the Republican controlled Congress will not serve justice for the American People. It is our duty as concerned citizens of the reality based community to make the effort to enable the removal and impeachment of the most corrupt Presidential Administration in the history of these United States of America. Justice and Accountability demand no less.

2. HEARINGS: Articles of Impeachment would be referred to the House Judiciary Committee. It takes a majority on the Judiciary Committee to schedule hearings. There are 38 Members on the Committee: 22 Republicans and 16 Democrats. Assuming all 16 Democrats support hearings, 4 Republicans would have to join them to reach a majority of 20. We will organize grassroots impeachment campaigns in the districts of all 22 Republicans on the Committee. If we can persuade enough Republicans to support hearings, it is likely those Republicans (and possibly others) will vote for one or more Articles of Impeachment if the hearings produce convincing evidence of impeachable crimes.
3. FLOOR VOTE: If a majority of the House Judiciary Committee votes for one or more Articles of Impeachment, these Articles will come before the full House for debate and a vote. There are 435 Members: 232 Republicans, 202 Democrats, and 1 Independent (Bernie Sanders) who usually votes with the Democrats. Assuming all Democrats (and Sanders) support impeachment, 15 Republicans would have to join them to reach a majority of 218. We will organize grassroots impeachment campaigns in every Congresional District to achieve a majority.
