John Conyers, whose job as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee puts him in charge of impeachment. <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/23/AR2007072300697.html">AP reports</a>: <p><blockquote><i> "Impeachment is not a fringe movement, it is mandated in our Constitution; Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table," Sheehan told her group of orange-clad activists Monday. "If Nancy Pelosi doesn't do her constitutionally mandated job by midnight ... I will announce that I'm going to run against her."</i> <p></blockquote> I just got a live report from David Swanson, who says Conyers is nowhere to be found - but Sheehan, Rev. Lennox Yearwood, and former CIA presidential briefer Ray McGovern are inside his office holding a press conference! <p> In fact, there are so many reporters with Cindy that they are taking turns going into the packed office to ask questions. <p> At least 300 activists are lining the halls outside the office, both the marchers and those who went directly to the Capitol. <p> Update 1:30: Conyers staff is negotiating with activists to move the protest to a larger room. <p> In Detroit, 50 people went to Conyers' district office, but they only let 5 people in and wouldn't let them keep their cellphones so we're not getting any reports. <p> Update 1:35: Conyers just arrived!! As he walked down the hall, activists shouted IMPEACH so loud the whole floor echoed. Conyers and his staff took Cindy, Rev., and Ray into a private office without the media. Stay tuned! <p> </blockquote></blockquote> This is a real American, whether you like her or not. At least she gets up off her ass and acts.
