Impeachment – Article Five

ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT FOR PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH
Resolved, that President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the
following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate:

Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in
the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its
impeachment against President George W. Bush for high crimes and misdemeanors.

In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional
oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability,
preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following abuses of power.

I’m posting an Article of Impeachment each day for the 35 days it will take to enumerate all of the high crimes and misdemeanors that Congress is considering bringing forward in the Bush Impeachment matter. In a way, I hope he doesn’t fall before Congress. I hope these matters carry forward into a new administration and that the Justice Department then is able to prosecute Citizen Bush and his cronies for the crimes. I’m sure there is no statute of limitations on treason (Articles 5, 6, 7 and 14), war crimes (Articles 15, 18, and 19), and crimes against humanity (Articles 8, 12, and 20).

Article 5.
ILLEGALLY MISSPENDING FUNDS TO SECRETLY BEGIN A WAR OF AGGRESSION
In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional
oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability,
preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty under Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution “to take care that the laws be faithfully executed”, has both personally and acting through his agents and subordinates, together with the Vice President, illegally misspent funds to begin a war in secret prior to any Congressional authorization.

The president used over $2 billion in the summer of 2002 to prepare for the invasion of Iraq. First
reported in Bob Woodward’s book, Plan of Attack, and later confirmed by the Congressional Research
Service, Bush took money appropriated by Congress for Afghanistan and other programs and—with no
Congressional notification — used it to build airfields in Qatar and to make other preparations for the
invasion of Iraq. This constituted a violation of Article I, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution, as well as a violation of the War Powers Act of 1973.

In all of these actions and decisions, President George W. Bush has acted in a manner contrary to his
trust as President and Commander in Chief, and subversive of constitutional government, to the
prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.
Wherefore, President George W. Bush, by such conduct, is guilty of an impeachable offense warranting
removal from office.
