Troops from Iraq. Demand by some Democrats for a withdrawal plan by the end of

how to bring the troops home from Iraq now.
2. Bush and the Republicans have shamed the US, breached international
and US constitutional law and weakened our security. They did so with permission
from the Democratic leadership. We need to hold them all accountable and we need
new political leadership.
3. When Republicans and many Democrats like Schiff voted to transfer
Congress's constitutionally mandated war power to the White House in October
2002, they undermined the balance of power and created the scenario for deceit
and massive abuse of power by the Bush Administration's radical
4. Paparian supports and when elected would co-sponsor House Resolution
635 that would create a Select Committee to investigate impeachable crimes by

House Resolution 637 calling for censure of Cheney.
5. Impeachment of Bush:
Warrantless wiretaps authorized by Bush
without a warrant violate FISA which is a felony.
Subverting our democracy by lying to
Congress and the American people to get them to support the invasion and
occupation of Iraq.
Gross incompetence or reckless
indifference to execute the laws faithfully in the conduct of the war in
Iraq. Unconscionably and unaccountably, failed to provide US soldiers and
Marines with bulletproof vests or appropriately armored vehicles, and no
serious plan for the aftermath of the invasion.
Torture and other abuses of power
authorized by Bush when he "opted-out" of the Geneva Conventions by
preventing prosecution of abusers
5. Schiff on the War:
July 20, 2005 voted in favor of an
amendment which affirmed that it is US policy to remain in Iraq. Requires
any withdrawl be done only with approval of elected government of Iraq.
May 25, 2005, voted against H109 which
calls for a withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
June 20, 2005 voted against an amendment
which would prohibit Bush from initiating military operations against other
countries without authorization from Congress.
