Meeting held to discuss impeachment of President George W. Bush-Truth!

Congressman John Conyers Hosted a Meeting in Washington to Discuss Impeachment of President George W. BushTruth!

Summary of eRumor:

An email from the petition website Grassfire.net says that Congressman John Conyers (D-Mich) brought together a group of attorneys and legal scholars to consider articles of impeachment against President George W. Bush.  The articles were drawn by activists who are opposed to the U.S. led effort against Iraq’s president Saddam Hussein.

The Truth:


News of the meeting was reported on March 13, 2003 by Roll Call magazine in Washington DC.  According to the article, Representative Conyers, who hosted the meeting, was the only member of congress in attendance.  The articles of impeachment were described as having been drafted by Francis Boyle, an Illinois law professor.  Roll Call says another attendee at the meeting was former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark.  WorldNetDaily.com says Clark has publicly called for impeachment of the president and is associated with the web site http://www.votetoimpeach.org/.

According to WorldNetDaily.com, some of those who answer the phones at Conyer’s office denied that meeting took place and called it a rumor.  But Dena Graziano, a spokesperson for Conyers told WorldNetDaily  said that the meeting had taken place but that the “consensus” had been not to pursue the impeachment.
