After Downing Street
After Downing Street (ADS) is a "coalition of veterans' groups, peace groups, and political activist groups, which launched on May 26, 2005, a campaign to urge the U.S. Congress to begin a formal investigation into whether President George W. Bush has committed impeachable offenses in connection" with the war in Iraq. 
Resolution of Inquiry
"A coalition of activist groups running the gamut of social and political issues will ask Congress to file a Resolution of Inquiry, the first necessary legal step to determine whether President Bush has committed impeachable offenses in misleading the country about his decision to go to war in Iraq, RAW STORY has learned.
"The formal Resolution of Inquiry request, written by Boston constitutional attorney John C. Bonifaz, cites the Downing Street Memo and issues surrounding the planning and execution of the Iraq war. A resolution of inquiry would force relevant House committees to vote on the record as to whether to support an investigation." 
Read the May 22, 2005, memo from Bonifaz to Rep. John Conyers, Jr. regarding "The President’s Impeachable Offenses."
