Democratic Senator Russ Feingold of Wisconsin is preparing to introduce two censure resolutions condemning Bush.
Senator Feingold made the announcement on NBC's Meet the Press.
- Sen. Feingold: "I think we need to do something serious in terms of accountability. And that's why I will be shortly introducing a censure resolution of the president and the administration. One on their getting us into the war in Iraq and their failure to adequately prepare our military and the misleading statements that have continued throughout the war in Iraq and the second on this administration's outrageous attack on the rule of law. All the way from the illegal terrorist surveillance program, their attitude about torture, which we've heard a little bit today on this show. This administration has assaulted the constitution."
Senator Feingold said a historical record of some kind is needed to indicate what has happened in the country under President Bush and Vice President Cheney.
