Sorry if this is a duplicate, but I was so heartened to see it, I just had to send it around. As David says, following, it's not yet a true impeachment hearing but it IS a start after literally years of pushing from the grassroots (us). So let's keep that push going! Everyone's on alert to do as David suggests following, and of course wear your Impeach gear wherever you can the next week and ESPECIALLY next Frhe iday. Our local Impeach billboard, Barbara Cummings, of course is always on message :>)

Impeachment Begins: Be on Capitol Hill on Friday July 25th
At 10 a.m. on Friday July 25th, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a preliminary hearing on the topic of impeachment, with a presentation by Congressman Dennis Kucinich. This is not yet a true impeachment hearing, but it is our opportunity to push for one, and it represents a tremendous victory after years of effort by millions of Americans who want to keep the Constitution alive. This never would have happened without your hard work. And we can't let up now!
The National Impeachment Network is organizing a rally and asking everyone who can to take a day off for justice and meet at 9 a.m. on Friday July 25th in front of the Rayburn House Office Building on the Independence Avenue side. Bring impeachment shirts and posters! For more information contact email@example.com
NOTE: The hearing has not been announced, but two members of Congress closely involved in this have told us it is at 10 a.m. on the 25th, and Chairman Conyers himself has so informed Veterans for Peace.
Between now and Friday the 25th, please take these steps:
