Congressman Dennis Kucinich says he will offer a resolution to the House of Representatives to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney.
The Democratic lawmaker who will introduce his privileged resolution next week said on Friday that the momentum is built for Cheney’s impeachment.
“Millions of citizens across the nation are demanding Congress to stand up against the Vice President’s abuse of power,” Kucinich said.
“The Vice President continues to use his office to advocate continued occupation of Iraq and prod our nation into a belligerent stance against Iran,” added the US presidential hopeful.
While the American media has decided to keep Kucinich’s announcement on a low profile 54 percent of the Americans are in favor of impeaching Cheney according to an American Research Group survey conducted last July.
Analysts believe the number of pro-impeachment Americans is on the rise due to Cheney’s hawkish policies towards the Islamic republic.
