The Case For Impeachment (Lapham, Harpers)

Lewis Lapham takes a serious look at the Conyers case for why we can no longer afford George Bush. Conyers explained why he entered his “futile” resolution on the phone with Lapham:

“To take away the excuse,” he said, “that we didn’t know.” So that two or four or ten years from now, if somebody should ask, “Where were you, Conyers, and where was the United States Congress?” when the Bush Administration declared the Constitution inoperative and revoked the license of parliamentary government, none of the company now present can plead ignorance or temporary insanity, can say that “somehow it escaped our notice” that the President was setting himself up as a supreme leader exempt from the rule of law.

Conyers report is available for a donation to the campaign to win back Congress. The more we take this seriously, the more serious we can make it.

Lapham’s article is excerpted on the Web. The full piece is in the March 2006 print edition of Harper’s Magazine.
