A Guide to Kucinich's Articles of Impeachment

Elizabeth de la Vega is producing a handy three-part summary and guidebook to Dennis Kucinich's articles of impeachment against George W. Bush, introduced to much public acclaim and studied media silence on June 9. The pdf's of de la Vega's work are available for downloading courtesy of Jason Leopold's The Public Record.

De la Vega, who is a former U.S. Attorney, describes her project:
Part I is a chart that itemizes the Articles of Impeachment with a subheading and a longer description. Part II is also a chart which itemizes U.S. and international laws that are implicated by the charges in the Articles of Impeachment. (Quite properly, not every impeachable offense is based on a specific legal violation.) In Part III, to come early next week, I will present an opening statement setting forth - just as a prosecutor would do before a trial -what the evidence would show with regard to these allegations.
With Kucinich promising to reintroduce his impeachment resolution within 30 days if the House Judiciary Committee fails to act on its referral (the Democratic leadership having sent it there in hopes of burying it), I'd say this will be a damn handy reference source.
