Impeachment: Getting It Right

Looseheadprop over at FireDogLake has a great post up today on the congressional investigations and the pitfalls of jumping the gun on impeachment.

There's not a shred of doubt in mind that Bush and Cheney have committed high crimes and misdemeanors and should be impeached. After that, tried for their crimes. But first things first.

Congress has to establish a record of their malfeasance, which is a slow and laborious process. Waxman, Leahy, Conyers, Whitehouse, Feingold . . . even our own Chuck Schumer are building the case block by block with each deposition, hearing, and subpoena. The Democrats have had control of Congress for only 4 months, and look how far we've come already . . . with a squalling, stonewalling administration and it's bootlicking sycophants like Chris Cannon and Patrick McHenry.

I understand the longing for impeachment, and the impatience . . . I went to my first protest on February 15, 2003. But we've got to get it right the first time.
