Cheney Impeachment Hearings?

Three Democratic members of the House Judiciary Committee (Robert Wexler (D., Fla.), Luis Gutierrez (D., Ill.) and Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.)) are calling for the hearings into the impeachment of Dick Cheney go ahead.

Last month, the House of Representatives voted to send a resolution of impeachment of Vice President Cheney to the Judiciary Committee. As members of the House Judiciary Committee, we strongly believe these important hearings should begin.

Although they do not cite the allegations that Cheney's office may be implicated in the CIA Interrogation Tape Destruction Scandal, they do mention the outing of former CIA agent Valerie Plame as one of the issues that requires investigation.
