A Cuban view on Impeachment

The story carried by the Latin American news network 'Prensa Latina' has much better coverage than AP or any large news agency in the US.


US Congress Sector Claims Bush Abdication

Washington, Dec 9 (Prensa Latina) US Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney presented a demand to subject President George W. Bush to a political trial for failure in the performance of his public duties, Arizona Daily Star published on Saturday.

After defending her proposal at the Capitol, Friday night, the representative for Georgia highlighted that W. Bush had violated his oath before the US citizens to defend the Constitution and federal laws.

The Afro American legislator demanded from the Congress to remove the republican president from his post, because she said that anyway, he is a president that was never legitimately elected.

McKinney accused the head of State of deceiving both parliamentarian forums and the US people about the war against Iraq, and violating privacy laws with his national espionage program.

The Congresswoman also criticized his party colleagues for following the republicans during a disastrous aggression against Iraq, where almost 3,000 US soldiers have died in three years and a half.

However, the Arizona daily said, the anti-Bush proposal does not have chances to be approved, because the new Representative Chamber President Nancy Pelosi warned that she would reject trials against the current occupant of the White House.
