As House Democrats hold a hearing which could lead to the impeachment of president George W. Bush, an online poll by MSNBC is showing 94% believe he misled the nation on the case for invadng Iraq.
With over 17,000 already having voted in the online poll, the result displayed overnight shows only 6% of those voting believe the president did not deliberately lie.
New York Rep. Charles Rangel has called on Congress to conduct an official inquiry to determine whether Bush intentionally misled the U.S.
He was among Democratic House members who participated in a forum
organized by Rep. John Conyers and other Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee to investigate the "Downing Street memo." The memo indicates the Bush administration was prepared to make intelligence reports about weapons of mass destruction justify their case for the invasion.
"Quite frankly, evidence that appears to be building up points to whether or not the president has deliberately misled Congress to make the most important decision a president has to make, going to war," said Rangel.
