Kucinich Impeachment Article to Allege Deception

Rep. Dennis Kucinich's (D-Ohio) latest article of impeachment against President Bush, which he will introduce on the House floor today, will accuse the president of misleading Congress into voting to invade Iraq.

Kucinich was working on the language of the article earlier today, a spokesman told The Hill. The finalized version accuses Bush of "deceiving Congress with fabricated threats of Iraq WMDs to fraudulently obtain support for an authorization of the use of military force against Iraq."

The Ohio Democrat leveled a similar accusation in the 35 articles of impeachment he introduced against Bush June 9.

The Briefing Room first reported Kucinich's plans to introduce the article yesterday.
