“Gang of Eight” & Obstruction of Justice should move Conyers, right?

Read the impeachable, criminal, anti-Constitutional charges against Bush then ask yourself…

“What is going on here? Why is everyone (almost everyone) in Congress protecting Bush and Cheney?”

We need your fresh ideas! I’m going to start a list:

  1. Obstruction of Justice Tactic: The “Gang of Eight” was secretly tipped off about warrantless NSA surveillance and torture (Articles #24 and #18 ) years before the New York Times and Washington Post revealed them to the public. Those reports have never been disputed.
    • What to do: Call Conyers & chat with him or his admin: It’s basically this: Under the House Ethics Rules, Nancy Pelosi and other witnesses (who may be accessories) are required to recuse themselves from participation to avoid any appearance of a conflict of interest. They are interested parties who can not in good faith move to keep impeachment off the table.

  3. Dear inpeachthem,

    I found your blog this morning, January 23, 2009. I regret that it is too late to impeach President Bush. Whether the senate would have convicted the president or not, impeachment is an affirmation that no person is above the law.

    It is necessary and proper to pursue criminal indictments, for example, against those who justified the president’s violation of his sacred oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Certainly, the first must indictment must accuse Vice-President Chaney of criminal behavior. The professional lawyers at the Department of Justice must take criminal action against high-level, political, executive branch politicians. Then, those of Cheney’s staff engaged in criminal action should defend their actions before a jury of their peers.

    The populace witnesses minor players sacrificed: demoted, arrested, and imprisoned. Policy makers have, for example, punished National Guard corporals and sergeants at Abu Ghraib. Those responsible for policies supporting torture live knowing that they will not be prosecuted.

    Bad policy decisions are not illegal. They denounce stupidity and incompetence. Deliberate, unconstitutional policies are illegal. They exhibit a distain for and lack of accountability to the American people.

    The conflict between increasing comity among political partisans and the defense of our Constitution and the rule of law place the new administration in a conundrum. Even if the government of the people undertakes criminal action against a few high-level actors, I believe that symbolism is as great a motivator for ethical behavior as wholesale criminal prosecutions.

    Vice-President Cheney permitted torture in our name. Unfortunately, Kucinich notwithstanding, few politicians will say, “The Emperor has no clothes.”

    Please continue your quest for justice.
