Here is the impeachment template if anyone missed it the first time around. RESOLUTION CALLING FOR THE IMPEACHMENT OF GEORGE BUSHWHEREAS
, Section 603 of the Manual of the Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives provides for impeachments to be initiated on a motion based on charges transmitted from a state legislature, and WHEREAS
, George W.

, George W. Bush has acted to strip Americans of their constitutional rights by ordering indefinite detention of citizens, without access to legal counsel, without charge and without opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge the detention, based solely on the discretionary designation by the President of a U.S. citizen as an “enemy combatant”, all in subversion of law, and WHEREAS
, George W. Bush has ordered and authorized the Attorney General to override judicial orders for the release of detainees under U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (formerly INS) jurisdiction, even though the judicial officer after full hearing has determined that a detainee is held wrongfully by the Government, and WHEREAS
, George W. Bush has ordered at least thirty times the National Security Agency to intercept and otherwise record international telephone and other signals and communications by American citizens without warrants from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, duly constituted by Congress in 1978, and designated certain U.S. citizens as “enemy combatants”, all in violation of constitutional guarantees of due process, and WHEREAS
, George W. Bush has admitted that he willfully and repeatedly violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and boasted that he would continue to do so, each violation constituting a felony, and WHEREAS
, George W. Bush has violated the United Nations Charter and other treaties prohibiting aggressive war by invading Iraq without just cause or provocation, and has misled the US Congress by deliberate or grossly, wantonly negligent falsehoods to obtain the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq resolution (Public Law 102-1)
