FW: [Afterdowningstreet] We made history yesterday!

We made history yesterday!
Thirty-five Congress Members attended a hearing organized by and Congressman John Conyers.  The hearing examined the question of whether there is good cause to investigate possible impeachable offenses by the President in his justification of the war.
Congressman Charles Rangel said at the hearing, "Quite frankly, evidence that appears to be building up points to whether or not the president has deliberately misled Congress to make the most important decision a president has to make, going to war."
Seven Congress Members, immediately after the hearing, proceeded to the White House, where Conyers delivered a letter, bearing 122 Congress Members' signatures and those of 560,000 Americans.  The letter demanded answers to the troubling facts presented in the Downing Street Minutes.  These seven members then joined the coalition and several hundred supporters at a rally in Lafayette Square Park.
And we awoke the mainstream media!  They are now asking questions at White House press brifings, writing articles, and chattering away on the broadcast media.
We did all of this in exactly three weeks, and we're exhausted but exhilerated.  However, this is the beginning, not the end, and if we are going to be able to continue, we will need funding.
This is a turning point.
Please contribute to through, one of our coalition members.  Please give what you can today:
