AP: Ga. Congressman Lewis calls for Bush impeachment over wiretapping
The Democratic congressman from Georgia told WAOK-AM that he would sign a bill of impeachment if one was drawn up and that the House of Representatives should consider such a move.
Lewis is among several Democrats who have voiced discontent with Sunday night's television speech, where Bush asked Americans to continue to support the Iraq War. Lewis is the first major House figure to suggest impeaching Bush.
Lewis said --quote-- "It's a very serious charge, but he violated the law. The president should abide by the law. He deliberately, systematically violated the law. He is not King, he is president."
