Inslee attempts to start the impeachment process of Alberto Gonzales

A ballsy move by a local Rep. to kick our Attorney General out of office.

Today, Rep. Jay Inslee announced that he will introduce legislation tomorrow that would require the House Judiciary Committee and the House of Representatives to impeach Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

Perhaps Inslee and other House Democrats were reading the New York Times this weekend, which wrote an editorial suggesting that Congress impeach Gonzales for his consistently infuriating (and likely perjured) testimonies. As for recent blunders, first there were the botched firings of nine U.S. attorneys. Then, last Thursday, F.B.I. director Robert Mueller contradicted Gonzales’ Tuesday testimony about the federal wiretapping program.

There’s no assurance that the legislation will pass, but it certainly is exciting to see a local representative making national headlines for something as needed as this. We need a strong leader in our Department of Justice and every time I watch Gonzales not answer an easy, direct question, the more I want him out.
