Stalling on Impeachment

On Wednesday 9 July, Chairman Conyers met with Veterans for Peace, in a dramatic confrontation over his indecision on impeachment.

The Real News Network's Matt Palevsky was at the meeting. Watch the story here.

Since June 9th, when Rep. Kucinich introduced 35 articles of impeachment, the articles have remained shelved in the House Judiciary Committee. Chairman Conyers has the ability to bring the articles to a vote in the committee, but he is undecided on a course of action. In a June meeting with Veterans for Peace, Rep. Conyers promised to present his decision on impeachment in early July. However, Conyers failed to present such a decision during a meeting held with Veterans for Peace (VFP) on Wednesday, July 9th. Members of VFP believe that Conyers is deploying stall tactics and that he has no intention of moving forward with impeachment. Conyers, once again, has promised to present his decision in a meeting planned for July 25th.
