Impeachment inertia

Marshall, John
July 2007
Hill;7/27/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 92, p15
The author reflects on the effort of some legislators to impeach U.S. President George W. Bush. He argues that an impeachment process is rather late in the president's term and that it could cause considerable damage on important matters that warrant immediate attention. Moreover, he stresses that despite the merits of impeachment, such as the controversy between Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and Senator Charles E. Schumer, it is still a distraction from important priorities.
