Update: PROGRESS On Cheney Impeachment Initiative
The Pen [email@example.com]
Dear friends and activists,
As the submissions in the National Cheney Impeachment Poll approach 60,000, more members of Congress are sounding like they are considering signing on as a sponsor of H.R. 333. We heard Maxine Waters on the radio the other day and she had very strong words to say about her personal feelings on Cheney impeachment. We are getting reports that others are responding to your messages with receptivity to the idea, as will they ALL if only we get more people to speak out.
Thanks to your continued support we are now running blog ads with the Cheney impeachment action button, for example Crooks and Liars among others this week. The next move we want to make is to run an ad on Daily Kos to help support them. For that we need to put together $1,800 in one lump, as it is the most expensive buy of the progressive blogs due to their very large traffic. So if you Kossacks and Daily Kos lovers think this is a good idea, please consider making a donation to make this happen. We will know from your response if we are ready to go for it this week.

The faster we can build up the vote numbers, already running 99.36 percent FOR impeachment, the faster we can get Congress to initiate proceedings. The situation could not be more urgent. The New York Times and CBS News are confirming a story we had already heard that Cheney is determined to suck the U.S. into a shooting war with Iran, provoked through back channels with Israel, if he can’t force that policy on Bush any other way. We are in greater danger of the strategic debacle in the Middle East spinning wildly out of control every day that Congress does not confront the monstrous malignancy in the office of the Vice president in particular.
We have set up an automated function so that if you add one of the action buttons for the National Cheney Impeachment Poll to your own web site or blog you will get an automatic link back listing on the action page. You can get the code for the buttons here.

We are also starting to receive in voting sheets from the person to person canvassing that some of you are already doing. We need to get a lot more of this going, for this is how we will break out of the circle of the usual internet activists and tap into the broad discontent in the general public about how radically wrong our foreign policy has gone, driven by the dark schemes of Dick Cheney.
VOTE SHEETS: http://www.usalone.com/cheney_votesheet.php
We are asking all of our participants to dedicate just one hour of your lives this summer to collect votes from whoever you run into in your normal daily travels. It could save all of our lives. It could save YOUR live, all of it. Help turn the National Cheney Impeachment Poll into a national phenomenon. That’s where we are going with this. We can do it with your help. All we have to do is get enough people to say he SHOULD be impeached, and he will be impeached.
Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed to be ours, and forward this message to everyone else you know.

A letter sent to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales by the House Judiciary Committee alleges that the Justice Department has failed to turn over information in a variety of categories requested in the course of the US Attorneys investigation. A top House Democrat subsequently made a veiled threat to issue more subpoenas.“I must again reiterate several long-standing requests for documents and other information from the Department of Justice, a number of which were made months before the May 10 hearing,” Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said in a Monday letter to the Attorney General obtained by RAW STORY.After noting that progress has been made in fulfilling earlier subpoenas, Conyers added a warning.“I hope to avoid a more formal legal process, but reiterate again that this information should be provided as soon as possible,” he wrote.(Original Article)
