The Constitution of the US specifies that the President, Vice President, and other members of an administration can be impeached for Treason, Bribery, and other High Crimes and Misdemeanors.

The High Crimes and Misdemeanors charged in the proposed impeachments of Vice President Dick Cheney and George W. Bush include the following:

There is ample public evidence for all of these charges except the outing of Valerie Plame. In that case, Vice President Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff Scooter Libby was convicted on four charges of lying and obstruction of justice, presumably to protect Cheney. President Bush then commuted Libby's jail sentence. If that was a cover-up, it was itself an impeachable offense. Thus there is ample evidence even here to justify hearings in Congress and the appointment of a Special Counsel.
