Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, has prepared  35 articles of impeachment against President Bush.

The perennial presidential candidate’s complaint includes allegations that Bush misled the nation about the threat from Iraq and Saddam Hussein’s ties to the 9/11 attacks. It also accuses his administration of endangering 9/11 first responders and misleading the public about climate change.

Here’s an excerpt:

Resolved, That President George W. Bush be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors, and that the following articles of impeachment be exhibited to the United States Senate: Articles of impeachment exhibited by the House of Representatives of the United States of America in the name of itself and of the people of the United States of America, in maintenance and support of its impeachment against President George W. Bush for high crimes and misdemeanors. In his conduct while President of the United States, George W. Bush, in violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following abuses of power.

Last year, Kucinich offered a similar resolution seeking the removal of Vice President Cheney.

Reuters says the new impeachment effort, like the earlier one, is opposed by Democratic leaders and isn’t likely to advance.
