Finally, the mainstream media are starting to sit and pay attention to the online community push to hold impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney for abuses of authority, treason and lying to the American people. An OpEd co-written by Reps, Wexler (D-FL), Baldwin (R-WI) and Guiterrez (D-IL) and originally turned down by NYTimes, Washington Post and others has finally been published

The issues at hand are too serious to ignore, including credible allegations of abuse of power that, if proven, may well constitute high crimes and misdemeanors under the Constitution. The allegations against Cheney relate to his deceptive actions leading up to the Iraq war, the revelation of the identity of a covert agent for political retaliation, and the illegal wiretapping of American citizens.
