Mr. Kucinich done snapped on Washington

In case you don't know Rep. Kucinich introduced a 35 count impeachment proceeding this evening. From what I can tell he started a couple hours ago and is only on article 17. This is either going to be brushed off or go forward and make some progress on executive accountability, to what end I don't know...

I may try to live blog some more of this as I watch it.

how did this pan out?

Basically he gave a 4:45 speech and entered the articles into the record. It is now up to the House Judiciary Committee to decide whether or not they want to debate and pass this onto the floor for a full vote.
As I understand it in the house there only needs to be a simple majority if there is a vote to pass it onto the Senate for criminal proceedings...
BTW, Kucinich also entered in impeachment articles against the VP last year and the Judiciary Committee has yet to debate on those...
