Impeachment Papers...?

...I doubt it. Not that I trust Pelosi's word, but they know full well we could have a witch-hunt of our own:

John Murtha's shady past that even has a Soros-funded liberal group (CREW) squawking at his appointment. His involvement in ABSCAM:

"...only a brief, 13-second snippet of a tape of the FBI's undercover meeting with Murtha is widely available. The agent tells him, "I went out, I got the $50,000. OK? So what you're telling me, OK, you're telling me that that's not what you know...." Murtha replies, "I'm not interested. I'm sorry. At this point [emphasis Murtha's]."

In his column, Novak hinted at the content of the tape. "The videotape showed Murtha declining to take cash but expressing interest in further negotiations, while bragging about his political influence." We have seen him declining the cash and expressing interest, but not the bragging. What is on the rest of the tape?..." (source)

UPDATE: In a Hardball interview with Chris Matthews, Murtha said it "was crap" having to talk about ethics when there were more important things going on in the world.

UPDATE II: Steny Hoyer has beat out John Murtha for the House leadership position. As I said, when you read Hoyer's voting record, I'm not sure this is a good thing. I do wonder how Pelosi and Hoyer can possibly work together now...

Nancy Pelosi's "role in the controversial, $280-million, federal-funded Hunters Point Shipyard affair--in relation to her alleged role as an investor in a real estate investment entity called PRESIDIO PARTNERS.

Look past the fact that the 936-acre site, of which about 443 acres are not polluted and that Hunter Point Shipyard is the largest tract of undeveloped land in San Francisco.

Roll Call has stated that in early 2004, John Murtha “reportedly leaned on U.S. Navy officials to sign a contract to transfer the Hunters Point Shipyard to the City of San Francisco” and that “Laurence Pelosi, nephew of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at the time was an executive of the company which owned the rights of the land.”

But the truth is Pelosi’s alleged involvement in the Hunters Point Shipyard fiasco goes well beyond what shows on the surface. For Pelosi it’s a well trodden trail that goes all the way to former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the Presidio’s most famous tenant." (Read the entire story)

And Harry Reid's involvement with Jack Abramoff.

"As convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to federal prison today, a source close to the investigation surrounding his activities told ABC News that Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was one of the members of Congress Abramoff had allegedly implicated in his cooperation with federal prosecutors.

A source close to the investigation says Abramoff told prosecutors that more than $30,000 in campaign contributions to Reid from Abramoff's clients "were no accident and were in fact requested by Reid."

Abramoff has reportedly claimed the Nevada senator agreed to help him on matters related to Indian gambling.

The Associated Press reported earlier this year that Reid wrote at least four letters helpful to the tribes that had contributed money to his campaign." (source)

And they had the audacity to use "corruption" as a reason to oust Republicans? Maybe Ms. Sheehan and the far-lefties should read these articles to understand why there is no rush to judgment about President Bush by the new liberal leadership.
