Bush will be impeached not for wrongdoing, but for lying

Nixon and Clinton both faced impeachments because they lied, and Bush will too. So says prominent First Amendment lawyer Martin Garbus.

"It was inconceivable before the Nixon and Clinton impeachment procedures began that there could be, or would be a country or Senate that would be responsive to it. In the Nixon case, it spiraled from a petty break-in - in Clinton's case from a petty sexual act.

"But what Bush has done, and will do, to protect himself is not petty. It goes to the heart of the government. He already has a history of misleading the public on the searches conducted thus far. As he and his colleagues seek to minimize the vast amount of data collection, the lies will necessarily expand to cover the wrongdoing. Bush can be brought down."
