Yesterday, Senator Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., defended plans for a Senate no-confidence vote on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, saying, “The president can keep him. He has the constitutional power to do it. But we have the constitutional power to try to pressure the president to understand that Gonzales is no good.”
Today, documentary filmmaker Robert Greenwald reminded Schumer and the rest of Congress there’s another constitutional power at their disposal: impeachment.
ImpeachGonzales.org features a bruising short from Greenwald’s Brave New Films, depicting Gonzales’ incredulous evasions regarding the Prosecutor Purge. And the site’s impeachment petition has scored over 25,000 signatures in less than a day.
