Has President George W. Bush Committed Impeachable Offenses?

John C. Bonifaz is an attorney and author of Warrior-King: The Case for Impeaching George W. Bush (NationBooks-NY, January 2004, foreword by Rep. John Conyers, Jr.) an accounting of that case and its meaning for the United States Constitution. In February and March 2003, Mr. Bonifaz served as lead counsel for a coalition of US soldiers, parents of US soldiers, and Members of Congress (led by Representatives Conyers and Kucinich) in a federal lawsuit challenging the authority of President Bush and Secretary Rumsfeld to launch a war against Iraq absent a congressional declaration of war or equivalent action. He is also the founder of the National Voting Rights Institute.
