Kucinich delays call for Cheney impeachment
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, delayed Tuesday his plan to introduce impeachment articles against Vice President Dick Cheney, following the news that the vice president visited his doctors earlier this morning to have the blood clot in his leg examined.
Rep. Kucinich delayed his impeachment call Tuesday.
"News reports this morning indicate the vice president was experiencing a medical crisis," Kucinich, a presidential candidate, said in a statement. "Until the vice president's condition is clarified, I am placing any action on hold," Kucinich said.
After the visit, Cheney's spokeswoman Megan McGinn said he received an ultrasound that "was reassuring and showed that the clot is gradually resolving.
"His blood thinning medication was found to be in the desired range," she added. "The vice president's doctors advised him to continue the current course of treatment."
