Vodpod videos no longer available.

Yesterday, Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich presented the House with a resolution for the impeachment of Vice President Dick Cheney (Video above). House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (Democrat) immediately moved to table the resolution, but the motion was shot down by a vote of 251-162, more than half of the votes against tabling were Republican. A summary:

House Democrats on Tuesday narrowly managed to avert a bruising debate on a proposal to impeach Dick Cheney after Republicans, in a surprise maneuver, voted in favor of taking up the measure.

Republicans, changing course midway through a vote, tried to force Democrats into a debate on the resolution sponsored by longshot presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich.” (1)

Also,

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “impeachment is off the table” and Congress is focused on responsibly getting U.S. troops out of Iraq, covering 10 million uninsured children and meeting national priorities long neglected by the Bush administration, said her spokesman Nadeam Elshami.” (1)
