Thank you, Big Tree, for posting my letter to Howard Dean calling for
impeachment. If we all write to Dr. Dean, he will be impressed with the
grassroots sentiment in favor of impeachment, and may move the Vermont
legislature and/or the Democratic Party in that direction.
I'm posting my letter again, for those of you who missed it the first time:
Howard Dean, former governor of Vermont and chair of the Democratic National
Committee, has asked us for feedback on what the Democrats should be doing,
This is our chance to tell Dr. Dean that we want Bush and Cheney impeached.
The following letter suggests a way that he can personally help make this
happen as quickly as possible, as we prepare for the November elections. We
must make it clear to the DNC that we want impeachment to be the main order
A number of us are working together for a major letter-writing campaign to
Dr. Dean. If he receives a number of letters with this suggestion, he will
see that "we the people" don't merely want a change of party, we want the
criminals in the White House removed and judged for their crimes, treason by
outing a CIA agent being high on the list.
This campaign originated with Norah Foster of the East Bay impeach meetup.
Please join us in spreading the word far and wide. Go to
and write your letter to Dr. Dean. You can cut and paste the one below, or
make up your own.
Dear Dr. Dean,
The number 1 priority for this country is to impeach Bush and Cheney for
high crimes and misdemeanors. Lying us into war, outing a CIA agent,
allowing 9-11 to happen- there is an endless list of treasonous activities.
Impeachment cannot happen in the usual way, through the House Judiciary
Committee, as long as the Republicans control the committee chairs. But
there is an an alternate route. Under the House rules, if a state
legislature calls for impeachment, the entire House must stop all other
business and consider the resolution.
Your home state of Vermont could initiate this procedure, and thereby get
Congr. John Conyers House Resolutions 635,636 & 637 out of the Judiciary
Committee and onto the House floor. We ask you to use your influence to
persuade the Vermont legislature to pass a resolution calling for
investigation into treason and other impeachable offenses on the part of
Bush and Cheney.
Many of us are withholding funds from the Democratic Party until we see some
action toward impeachment. This is an ideal way for you, as ex-governor of
Vermont and current head of the Democratic National Committee, to use your
Carol S. Wolman, MD
