WHOOPS! Braley for impeachment before he’s against it!

From The Des Moines Register:

Republicans Wednesday pointed out that in 2007, some Democrats in Congress were trying to persuade then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to proceed with impeachment articles against Cheney for misleading the public to enter into the war in Iraq.

As Pelosi made it clear to Democrats that she didn’t want to proceed with votes on the impeachment articles, she offered a motion to table the resolution.

On that vote, which would have stopped the impeachment referral, Braley voted no, along with 85 other members of his party, including some of the chamber’s most far-left Democrats and the chief agitator for impeachment, then-Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio.
