July 25, 2008 at 6:15 PM

WASHINGTON, July 25 (UPI) -- Rep. Dennis Kucinich Friday asked the House Judiciary Committee to consider his proposal to impeach U.S. President George Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.

The Ohio Democrat is holding hearings on the "constitutional limitations" of the executive branch that were not to include Kucinich's impeachment resolutions, The Hill reported Friday.

The newspaper reported that Kucinich, who was prohibited from "utilizing familiar terms" related to impeachment, asked that his three separate impeachment resolutions to be entered into the Judiciary Committee record.

"I request that each member read the three bills I have authored, bills which are now awaiting consideration by the Judiciary Committee," Kucinich said. "I am confident the reader will reach the same conclusions that I have about culpability."

Opening the meeting, Kucinich lashed out at the Bush administration over the Iraq war.

"The primary justifications for going to war, outlined in the legislation which the White House sent to Congress in October of 2002, have been determined conclusively to be untrue," Kucinich said.
