[Breaking] Rep. KEITH ELLISON (D-MN) SIGNS IMPEACH

Jodin Morey writes " by Mikael Rudolph An aide called www.ImpeachforPeace.org from the offices of Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) this morning saying that Rep. Ellison has signed House Resolution 333 as authored by Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) calling for impeachment hearings to commence against Vice President Dick Cheney. Members of ImpeachforPeace had met with Rep. Ellison in April at which time he had said that "Impeachment Should Be on the Table", but that he needed to hear from his consituents before cosigning the impeachment bill. Rep. Ellison's signature, along with that of Rep. James McDermott (D-WA), who also added his name to the resolution this week, brought the number cosigners to ten. Ellison is notably the second member of the House Judiciary Committee to cosign, along with Maxine Waters (D-CA). Th HJC is where the bill sits for now, waiting for enough support to be brought to a vote. A simple majority would initiate impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives. Resolutions in support of H. Res. 333 and calling for Rep. Ellison to cosign were resoundingly passed at the Minnesota 5th District Democratic Farmer-Labor Party Central meeting last week after a presentation by ImpeachforPeace. More to come."
