Why is impeachment off the table?

The more I think about it, the angrier I become. The FISA scandal alone seems to be to be solid ground for impeachment, without even looking at little things such as lying us into a war, politicizing the justice department, torturing people in contravention of U.S. and international law, etc....

Isn't it obvious to everyone that the only reason the Bush administration could possibly have for insisting on amnesty for the telecom companies is that they broke the law -- at his behest? This seems like such a no-brainer to me. I can't understand why Pelosi won't listen to people like Robert Wexler who insist that, at the very least, it's time for an investigation into the wrongdoings of the Bush/Cheney crime family. Let's face it, the Corleones had nothing on these people when it came to breaking the law and not getting caught or paying any consequences.

Unfortunately, my representative is the (dis)honorable Trent Frank, who has not even bothered to respond to my barrage of emails and letters urging him to look out for the Constitution rather than for his pork barrel buddies, and my communications with Rep. Pelosi have been similarly to no avail. However, if any of you have a rep who doesn't have his nose stuck all the way up the shrub's behind, please contact them and demand explanations for their dereliction of duty. After all, their oath is to the constitution -- not the President.

The sickest irony of all this is the line that got Clinton impeached has become like a bad joke when compared to what these rotten creatures have come out with.
