Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Dennis Kucinich, the Ohio Congressman and former 2008 Democrat presidential candidate, said if the House fails to act on his articles of impeachment, or if the articles are sabotaged in committee, he will come back with 60 articles. Earlier this week, the maverick Congressman introduced 35 articles of impeachment against Bush. The articles follow:

Asked on the Alex Jones Show if he fears retaliation for going up against Bush and the neocons, Kucinich said he really has no choice and he is guided by his faith and motivated by outrage over what Bush and his criminal crew have done to the Constitution and the republic.
“Thirty days from now, if there is no action, I will be bringing the resolution up again, and I won’t be the only one reading it. We’ll come back and many of us will be reading this [on the House floor], and we’ll come back with 60 articles, not 35,” Kucinich told the Washington Post. “Leadership wants to bury it, but this is one resolution that will be coming back from the dead.”
Mr. Kucinich’s impeachment effort came a week after a report by the Senate Intelligence Committee concluding that Bush, vice president Cheney and the neocons “knowingly exaggerated available intelligence and over-stated the Iraqi threat in building their case for war,” as the Voice of America reported Wednesday. In other words, Bush and the neocons lied the nation into the invasion and occupation of Iraq, thus far resulting in the murder of over a million Iraqis and an under-reported number of U.S. soldiers.
Alex and Mr. Kucinich agreed that the crimes enumerated above make those committed by Richard Nixon during the Watergate era pale by way of comparison.
