According to ImpeachForPeace.org, the citizens of the U.S. don't
need to wait for Congress to initiate impeachment proceedings
against President Bush. From their website:

"Impeach for Peace, a Minnesota-based impeachment group, has
researched a method for impeaching the president using a little
known and rarely used part of the Rules of the House of
Representatives ("Jefferson's Manual"). This document actually
empowers individual citizens to initiate the impeachment process
themselves.

The "Jefferson's Manual" is an interpretive guide to parliamentary
procedure, and is included (along with the Constitution) in the
bound volumes of the Rules of the House of Representatives. The
section covering impeachment lists the acceptable vehicles for
bringing impeachment motions to the floor of the House.

Before the House Judiciary Committee can put together the Articles
of Impeachment, someone must initiate the impeachment procedure.
Most often, this occurs when members of the House pass a resolution.
Another method outlined in the manual, however, is for individual
citizens to submit a memorial for impeachment.

After learning this information, Minnesotan and Impeach for Peace
member (Jodin Morey) found precedent in an 1826 memorial by Luke
Edward Lawless which had been successful in initiating the
impeachment of Federal Judge James H. Peck. Impeach for Peace then
used this as a template for their "Do-It-Yourself Impeachment." Now
any citizen can download the DIY Impeachment Memorial and submit it,
making it possible for Americans to do what our representatives have
been unwilling to do. The idea is for so many people to submit the
Memorial that it cannot be ignored.

Feel free to download it, print out TWO copies, fill in your
relevant information in the blanks (name, State, etc.), and send in
two letters today (One to the Speaker of the House, and the other to
John Conyers of the House Judiciary).

Hold on to the other copy of the two letters until October 12th when
we're having everyone send them in.

That's right to make a big impact, we're having everyone send it
in on the same date. We hope to flood the Judiciary Committee and
John Conyers office with sacks of mail and cause a newsworthy event
to further pressure the Congress to act on the memorials. Although,
it's important to keep in mind that in the 1826 precedent,
impeachment resulted as a result of a single memorial. Yours might
be the one."
