Eight members of the House, all Democrats, are supporting H.R. 635, which would create a select committee to investigate the grounds for impeaching President Bush. Shortly before the holiday break, on Dec. 18, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) introduced H.R. 635 and on Dec. 22, seven House colleagues joined him, according to Atlanta Progressive News.

H.R. 635 reads in its official title: "Creating a select committee to investigate the Administration's intent to go to war before congressional authorization, manipulation of pre-war intelligence, encouraging and countenancing torture, retaliating against critics, and to make recommendations regarding grounds for possible impeachment."

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), in a radio program, said that he would sign a bill of impeachment if it were drafted on account of the president's approval of "illegal domestic wiretapping." Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Ca.) has requested information by legal scholars regarding the grounds for impeachment for the same reason. Without any Republican co-sponsors and the Democratic minority status in the House, the future of the bill is uncertain. - JS
