Bill Proposed to Impeach the President

By  | 

what was likely her final legislative act in Congress, outgoing Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney announced a bill on Dec. 8, 2006, to impeach President Bush.

McKinney is a Democrat who drew national headlines in March when she struck a Capitol police officer, when he tried to stop her from entering a congressional office building for not wearing her member lapel pin.

She introduced her legislation in the final hours of the current Congress, saying President Bush has misled Congress on the war in Iraq and had violated privacy laws with his domestic spying program.

The legislation has no chance of passing.
