Shirley Golub to produce an Impeachment Play co-written by Bruce Fein

Shirley Golub is producing a play co-written by Constitutional Law Scholar Bruce Fein. fein.jpg

golub.jpg Shirley is seeking contributions to support this effort and her campaign to obtain Nancy Pelosi’s seat in Congress. Readers are likely aware that Nancy Pelosi has maintained that the impeachment of Cheney and Bush is “off the table”. Clearly as an elected official representing her constituents in the San Francisco area, this is not for her to decide. Her statement indicates her refusal to uphold the Constitution in terms of the offenses committed by both Cheney and Bush.

    According to Bruce Fein, Cheney has:

  • Asserted Presidential power to create military commissions, which combine the functions of judge, jury, and prosecutor in the trial of war crimes.
  • Claimed authority to detain American citizens as enemy combatants indefinitely at Guantanamo Bay on the President’s say-so alone.
  • Initiated kidnappings, secret detentions, and torture in Eastern European prisons of suspected international terrorists.
  • Championed a Presidential power to torture in contravention of federal statutes and treaties.
  • Engineered the National Security Agency’s warrantless domestic surveillance program targeting American citizens on American soil in contravention of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978.
  • Orchestrated the invocation of executive privilege to conceal from Congress secret spying programs to gather foreign intelligence, and their legal justifications.
  • Summoned the privilege to refuse to disclose his consulting of business executives in conjunction with his Energy Task Force.
  • Retaliated against Ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife Valerie Plame, through chief of staff Scooter Libby, for questioning the administration’s evidence of weapons of mass destruction as justification for invading Iraq. (Read Fein’s SLATE article)

To support Ms. Golub’s and Mr. Fein’s efforts in bringing this play to the public, please donate through her website.

Please also consider joining Ms. Golub each Thursday at 450 Golden Gate, San Francisco, with her table, between 12 and 1pm as she takes a stand for putting impeachment back on the table.
