Today's secret congress was only the 6th in US History. And they spent 6-hours doing bug sweeps before beginning.

Is it possible that the real reason for the session was to discuss impeachment possibilities?

Thats a joke right? Impeachment won't happen.

Says who? Congress is already defying the administration by discussing not allowing telco amnesty. It's apparent that they're through with supporting his illegal operations.

If during their discussion they decide that Bush is in fact breaking current law, and that they are not going to support it. They would have to file impeachment charges, they would not have a choice.

It could happen. The truth is, a lot of politicians see their own careers going down the tubes if some decisive action isn't taken to redeem their credibility.

Not that the process wouldn't take so long Bush would be out of office before anything was really done.

Know what how? I asked if it is possible....meaning an open discussion regarding the topic.

The problem is that Congress has a lower approval rating than Bush, so I doubt they'd have the support they'd need to take the country down that road. There's a reason why impeachment isn't used very frequently- the founding fathers didn't intend for it to be used every time there were policy differences, thus politicizing it. That would be a very bad precedent to set, and both sides know it.

True, however, if the reason their approval ratings are low is due to maintaining the war on terror, they could see it as a possible out before election time.

If it is such a secret congress meeting, how did you find out about it? Please post a reference or link to an outside source.

It's been in the news all day but I am sure some nice ATS'er will find a link for you. Not me.

It's not evident that Congress' approval ratings being low are due to the war though. It has more to do with them seemingly unable to get anything positive done, instead of just bickering.

OK, just wanted to make sure this was a legitimate topic.

The word is in congress just denied bush his amnesty bill:

House Challenges Bush on Surveillance


The vote came after a unique secret session Thursday night in the House. It was the first time the House has met in secret since 1983 .

The Democratic plan would allow telecommunications companies to be sued for their role in the administration's much-disputed warrantless surveillance program -- something that President Bush and GOP allies have railed against.

I'd love it but I tend to doubt it's regarding impeachment. I just hope it's not a briefing or discussion about Iran or our imminent economic doom.

OMG - the Democrats might have actually accomplished something of merit. If this is accurate that would be great news! Now if we could just get to gutting the Patriot Act.

Uh, let's see. Managing my business, meeting with clients, developing target market penetration strategies, customizing web development and IT integration concepts, and now am in college online at the UOP finishing up some homework, after I finish I will be getting ready to take my girlfriend out for dinner tonight. Thanks for asking.

I severely doubt that it has impeachment in the works. What goes congress do behind closed doors as opposed to with open doors?

(doesn't know how to make nice links )
Most of the closed door sessions historically relate to military matters, or international affairs.

Although it may be about the demise of the dollar, I believe this session is related to "national security".
