Dear Representative Joe Courtney,
It is time that the Bush Administration pay for gross miscarriages of justice. I direct you, as my representative, to begin impeachment proceedings against Mr. Alberto Gonzales, Attorney General of the United States.
Mr. Gonzales has repeatedly and regularly defied Congress. He has engaged in deliberate and calcuated efforts to mislead the American people on matters as diverse as the prosecution of alleged terrorists, the war in Iraq, and a domestic spying program. He is likely to have played a role in today’s commutation of sentence for Mr. I. Lewis Libby, who helped expose the secret-intelligence networks we need in the war on terror to corruption and compromise.
Mr. Gonzales has also allowed the process of selection and appointment of U.S. Attorneys to be corrupted and compromised by political considerations rather than strict adherence to the law.
Moreover, as a prominent member of the Bush Administration, he has participated in a series of actions which have compromised the integrity of the tripartite division of powers as set forth in the U.S. Constitution.
On this Fourth of July, I urge you to stand up to the heinous actions of this presidential administration, and strike a blow for liberty. Impeach Mr. Alberto Gonzales for crimes against the Constitution, and begin the process to remove him from office: as a signal to the White House, as a signal to the American People, that the flag, and the Republic for which it stands, still dispenses liberty and justice for all.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
