** Critics assail Bush on war, prosecution of Dems **

Chicago Tribune

WASHINGTON -- Critics of President George W. Bush got the chance to air grievances against him Friday at a House Judiciary Committee "non-impeachment hearing" before a packed audience of political activists.

Even Cindy Sheehan, the famous anti-war mother, was there until she got kicked out for being loud.

Committee members and witnesses, including Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr, spoke for almost six hours on allegations the Bush administration, among other things, misled the public into the Iraq War, manipulated intelligence, and selectively prosecuted Democrats. Northwestern University professor Stephen Presser offered expert analysis.

The session was not an impeachment hearing, because the House of Representatives had not given authorization for such proceedings. Ranking Republican committee member Lamar Smith of Texas called the hearing an "anger-management class" that only serves to impeach Congress' credibility.

The man who started it all is former presidential candidate Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), who has brought repeated impeachment resolutions against Bush. On Friday he presented one of his articles of impeachment against the president, which the House had sent to the committee as a way to kill the resolution.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has said impeachment is "off the table."
