SENATE RESOLUTION

State of Vermont

Senate Chamber

Montpelier, Vermont

Senate Resolution


   By Senators White and Shumlin,

S.R. 16.  Senate resolution urging Vermont’s Representative in the United States House of Representatives to introduce, and Vermont’s United States Senators to support, a resolution requiring the United States House Judiciary Committee to initiate impeachment proceedings against the President and the Vice President of the United States.

Whereas, President George W. Bush and Vice President Richard Cheney have exercised the duties of their respective offices with respect to both domestic and foreign affairs in ways that raise serious questions of constitutionality, statutory legality, and abuse of the public trust, and

Whereas, the President’s conduct in his role as Commander in Chief in leading our nation into the military conflict in Iraq, and the Vice President’s continual advocacy for American troops remaining in Iraq, have cost the United States much of the good will that was extended to our country in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, and

Whereas, the President’s and the Vice President’s domestic leadership on issues relating to individual privacy and personal liberty under law has raised constitutional issues of the greatest concern to the nation’s citizenry, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate:

That the Senate of the State of Vermont urges Vermont’s Representative in the United States House of Representatives to introduce, and Vermont’s United States Senators to support, a resolution requiring the United States House Judiciary Committee to initiate impeachment proceedings against the President and the Vice President of the United States, and be it further

Resolved:  That the Secretary of the Senate be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Unites States Representative Peter Welch, United States Senator Patrick J. Leahy and United States Senator Bernard Sanders.
