Pelosi Will Never Impeach

In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says she will not impeach Bush. She claims that she doesn't have the influence to bring about impeachment proceedings, but I would think the Speaker of the House better have that sort of influence as the party leader. She also claims that there are no grounds for impeachment, based on the current situation in Iraq. She also avoided the question as to whether or not holding the administration accountable actually involved any sort of real punishment.

But the point of impeachment, not just of Bush but also Chaney and other government officials that are involved, is to remove these officials from public office because they have committed criminal acts. Irrespective of impeachment, these same officials should be arrested as criminals, since they are civilians and are still bound by word of law, even if they are also high-ranking officials in the U.S. government. Why isn't the FBI showing up and taking them away? Even the right-leaning 24 did that.
