Pelosi: Impeachment is off the table (2005) [View all]

That was Speaker Pelosi in 2005 after British newspapers broke the story on the Downing Street Memos that showed a conspiracy between PM Tony Blair and President George W. Bush to invade Iraq under false pretenses.

Hundreds of thousands died. Millions became displaced as war refugees. If a war based on lies was not enough reason to impeach Bush, I hold little hope that Trump will be impeached on lesser grounds.

Let’s Go to the Memo
What’s really in the Downing Street memos?

Is there anything important in the Downing Street memo? This is the now-notorious secret transcript of a British ministerial meeting on July 23, 2002—obtained and published by the Sunday Times of London just this past May Day—which seems to suggest that, nine months before the war in Iraq got started, the Bush administration a) knew Saddam Hussein didn’t pose a threat; b) decided to overthrow him by force anyway; and c) was “fixing” intelligence to sell the impending invasion to a duped American public.
