Almost 70 Vermont legislators want Congress to begin an investigation that could lead to impeachment proceedings against President Bush.
Representative Richard Marek of Newfane circulated a letter that was signed by 56 members of the House and 13 members of the Senate. No Republicans have signed the letter.
The letter will be sent to the members of Vermont’s congressional delegation.
The letter cites the president’s domestic surveillance program and the reasons given for going to war with Iraq.
Earlier this month the Democratic State Committee urged Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against the president, but decided against asking the Legislature to join that call.
