Costello pushes hearings on Cheney
BY BETH HUNDSDORFER
U.S. Rep Jerry Costello has called for impeachment hearings against U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney during Congress' session that begins today.
Costello called for hearings Saturday while on the Iowa caucus campaign trail with fellow U.S. House of Representatives member and presidential
candidate Dick Gephardt, according to the Drudge Report.
Costello questioned the award of billions of dollars of contracts to Cheney's former corporation Haliburton to extinguish fires and rebuild Iraq's
oil infrastructure after the war.
"Can you imagine what the Republicans would be doing to a Democratic president who was a CEO of a company that now has gotten billions of dollars
worth of contracts -- no-bid contracts -- without competition?" Costello, D-Belleville, was quoted as saying.
"There would be hearings day after day. And my prediction to you is that you will see in this session of Congress ..., there will not only be
hearings, but I think there ought to be impeachment hearings."
