Yippee - the NY Slimes is reporting that the turd sucking leaders in the DNC Congress are planning on continuing their quest for the Holy Grail after President Bush leaves office. The investigations into rumor and innuendo and tinfoil hat charges will continue...
"The Bush administration overstepped in its exertion of executive privilege, and may very well try to continue to shield information from the American people after it leaves office," said Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, who sits on two committees, Judiciary and Intelligence, that are examining aspects of Mr. Bush’s policies.
Topics of open investigations include the harsh interrogation of detainees, the prosecution of former Gov. Don Siegelman of Alabama, secret legal memorandums from the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel and the role of the former White House aides Karl Rove and Harriet E. Miers in the firing of federal prosecutors.
Mr. Bush has used his executive powers to block Congressional requests for executive branch documents and testimony from former aides. But investigators hope that the Obama administration will open the filing cabinets and withdraw assertions of executive privilege that Bush officials have invoked to keep from testifying.
"I intend to ensure that our outstanding subpoenas and document requests relating to the U.S. attorneys matter are enforced," said Representative John Conyers Jr., Democrat of Michigan and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. "I am hopeful that progress can be made with the coming of the new administration."
Also, two advocacy groups, the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights First, have prepared detailed reports for the new administration calling for criminal investigations into accusations of abuse of detainees.
Are these fools just really trying to see how low they can get their approval rating before the country kicks them in the gonads? More wasted time and expense for more CodePinko inspired foolishness...
Personally I say BRING. IT. ON. I would love for a precedent to be set that will apply to ALL former Presidents especially after the 4 years of BO. Then maybe we could get the truth about his ties to Ayers, Rezko, Khalidi and even his REAL birth certificate.
While we're at it - let's include those members of Congress that have pending issues hanging over their heads. For instance, Cold Cash Jefferson, the Dodd/Frank/Emmanuel fannie mae connections, Pelosi's fundraising for her husband's business, Conyers and his wife's babysitting scam, Feinstein's husbands business development and Claire McCaskill's husband's addiction to prostitutes, etc.
So let me get this straight.... our economy is in the toilet, Barney and friends want to "chavez" our country and BO is going to make us all slaves to the government via community service projects. Meanwhile Conyers and his islamofascist supporters want to investigate the President after he leaves office. Is this part of the Hopey and Changey cult? Sounds like more of the same crap that they've been dishing out for past 2 years.
