Rep. Grijalva Becomes 23rd Co-Sponsor of Impeach Cheney Resolution

Dec. 6, 2007 (EIRNS)—Rep. Raul M. Grijalva (D-Ariz.) became the 23rd Congressman to co-sponsor the resolution (H.R. 799, formerly H.R. 333) introduced by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. Grijalva, who represents the 7th Congressional District in Arizona, embracing Tucson and Nogales, is the son of a Mexican migrant worker. He is the 2nd Vice Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. According to the Library of Congress, Rep. Grijalva added his name on Dec. 5.

He is the first Congressman to join the effort to impeach Cheney since Kucinich raised the resolution on the floor of the House of Representatives and it was referred to the Judiciary Committee for consideration.

Although, as Lyndon LaRouche has stated, the recent National Intelligence Estimate has made it more difficult for Cheney to launch an attack on Iran, as long as Cheney remains in office the danger still exists that a major staged incident could still provide the pretext he and his superiors so desperately desire for sabotaging the peace process supported by LaRouche, which took a step forward at Annapolis.
