Clark's announcement about the results of Vote to Impeach/ImpeachBush.org comes on the fifth anniversary of the start of the Iraq war.
Ramsey Clark announced the launch of the impeachment effort at a rally of a half million people on January 18, 2003 on the national mall in Washington DC.
ImpeachBush.org which houses the Vote to Impeach on-line referendum has been visited by millions of people and more than one million have signed the on-line petition or paper petitions that have been circulated door to door in neighborhoods around the country.
"This is the largest grassroots impeachment effort in US history," Clark stated. "Impeachment now will stop the continuing course of criminal conduct of the Bush Administration, which becomes more dangerous each day. President Bush is working at a frenetic pace to prove in the face of all the facts that his policies are right and heroic."
Clark continued, "Impeachment is not a political question. It is a constitutional duty. It is the means by which the people, through their elected representatives, can protect their country from a lawless “President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States” by removing them from office. A failure to act in the face of a persistent, systemic and proudly proclaimed course of criminal conduct can bring the country to ruin."
The Vote to Impeach movement has placed newspaper ads in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Hartford Courant. It has hundreds of volunteers nationwide, and has helped organize many mass anti-war and pro-impeachment protests.
