George W. Bush/impeachment
During his term in office, George W. Bush committed what some people believe are impeachable offenses. There have been several popular movements to start impeachment proceedings, but Congress had generally ignored them until Dennis Kucinich formally submitted 35 articles of impeachment in 2008.

- (beingism: illegal detention) acting to strip Americans of their constitutional rights by ordering indefinite detention of citizens, without access to legal counsel, without charge and without opportunity to appear before a civil judicial officer to challenge the detention, based solely on the discretionary designation by the President of a U.S. citizen as an "enemy combatant", all in subversion of law

Olver asked us to spare him a review of what he already knew and believed about the crimes of the Bush administration, and of the overwhelming majority of his district in favor of impeachment. When he aggrandized himself on his voting record, I took exception to 24 April 2007. When he asked what I was referring to, I challenged him to co-sponsor H. Res. 333; and he emphatically refused.”
