John Dean thinks George W. Bush should be impeached. And impeachment is a subject that Dean knows something about. In an interview with Bill Moyers which will air this evening to coincide with the release of Dean's new book called Worse than Watergate, there is the following exchange:
Let me go right to page 155 of your book. You write, quote, "The evidence is overwhelming that George W. Bush and Richard B. Cheney have engaged in deceit and deception over going to war in Iraq. This is an impeachable offense."
Absolutely is. The founders in the debates in the states-- I cite one. I cite one that I found -- I tracked down after reading the Nixon impeachment proceedings when-- Congressman Castenmeyer had gone back to look to see what the founders said about misrepresentations and lying to the Congress. Clearly, it is an impeachable offense. And I think the case is overwhelming that these people presented false information to the Congress and to the American people.
That should take the level of rhetoric up another notch. At least.
