Congressional Democrats begin impeachment of Gonzales

Jay Inslee (D-WA) has introduced a bill to begin an impeachment investigation of Gonzales. Follow the link to C&L for news video. There's a diary on Kos, but it doesn't seem to have more information. It does have some transcript of the NBC coverage:

From NBC's Mike Viqueira
A group of House Democrats will introduce a resolution calling on the Judiciary Committee to begin impeachment proceedings against Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA) will sponsor the measure. It will be dropped in the hopper tomorrow.

It's too early to say whether it will actually get anywhere.

Here's the text of resolution...

Directing the Committee on the Judiciary to investigate whether Alberto R. Gonzales, Attorney General of the United States, should be impeached for high crimes and
1 Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary shall
2 investigate fully whether sufficient grounds exist for the
3 House of Representatives to impeach Alberto R. Gonzales,
4 Attorney General of the United States, for high crimes
5 and misdemeanors.

Let's hope this passes. Getting rid of Gonzales won't be enough, but it's a start.
