AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE

VIA MyWay News, Mark Sherman of AP reports on testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales:

“Gonzales: Bush Blocked Eavesdropping Probe”

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20060718/D8IUGOTO0.html

“Attorney General Alberto Gonzales said Tuesday that President Bush personally blocked Justice Department lawyers from pursuing an internal probe of the warrantless eavesdropping program that monitors Americans' international calls and e-mails when terrorism is suspected.

The department's Office of Professional Responsibility announced earlier this year it could not pursue an investigation into the role of Justice lawyers in crafting the program, under which the National Security Agency intercepts some telephone calls and e-mail without court approval.”

That’s known as obstruction of justice, an impeachable offense. If the Republican majority weren’t traitors to the Constitution, articles of impeachment would be on the table today.

We have to hand Congress back to the Democrats. It’s the only hope the Constitution has.

Comments:
The old “obstruction of justice impeachable offence” play. My how short our memories are, do you forget that was exactly the plea deal Clinton took when he left office? He pled guilty to lying to a federal judge, and to a grand jury in order to avoid an obstruction of justice charge. I don’t recall the Democrats exactly being stand up guys when it came to truth, justice and the American way on that one. Trust me, after eight years of Clinton, it will be quite a while before “honest government” and “Democrat” pop into peoples heads
as anything other than mutually exclusive terms.
