Several books have argued a hypothetical case for impeaching George W. Bush, but Congressman Dennis Kucinich grabbed the bull by the horns and put forward 35 Articles of Impeachment before Congress in June 2008. This book presents all of Kucinich’s Articles along with supplementary material that cannot be found in the Congressional Record.
We learn from investigator David Swanson (who assisted Kucinich with his Articles of Impeachment) that when George Bush and his cabinet leave office, the case for his impeachment is still necessary and possible, and the case for the prosecution of his crimes remains quite open.
For this book, Dennis Kucinich provides a new foreword and David Swanson discusses a number of other prosecutable crimes that didn’t make Kucinich’s final cut. Federal prosecutor and author Elizabeth de la Vega (United States v. George W. Bush et al.) contributes an annotated list of criminal violations in the Articles.
Vincent Bugliosi’s best-selling The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder addresses only one of Bush’s crimes, while Dennis Kucinich’s 35 Articles of Impeachment fully opens the can of worms, proving a case against dozens of executive crimes.
Dennis Kucinich is the former mayor of Cleveland and has represented the Tenth District of Ohio for the United States House of Representatives since 1996. He was also a candidate for the Democratic nominee for president in the 2004 and 2008 elections.
