Wonder if these will also claim to not remember anything, or claim execusitve privlege, something that has worn quite thin. No one will be surprised, but neither should be acceptable anymore. It's obviously a matter of something to hide. Noted.

I look forward seeing this get to the supreme court as constitutional confrontaion, but it is also at tax payer expensed to put the brances of government in order.

I agree. I'm anxious to see where this goes, of course all legal review is at taxpayers expense. I'm sure willing to pay to pop the Executive balloon. We can't let it continue to go in the direction its been going. I hope the Justices have their pins ready. This showdown is long overdue and the Dem's have always been good with legal showdowns. Not that this is much of a match. Every legal scholar in the nation is placing their bets. Thanks Jakki for keeping us up to dat'ah.

Having lived through the era, I'd always thought the bottom-line lesson of Watergate was that not even the president is above the law. Shame on me for holding such a childish notion!!

If it becomes a criminal investigation, they cannot ignore subpoenas. I hope they have painted themselves into a corner and congress appoints an independent prosecutor. Fitzgerald comes to mind.
What can be done about the president commuting sentences for his cronies??

Put Your Name in the Congressional Record in Support of Impeachment

Rep. Dennis Kucinich wants to put the name of everyone who supports Dick Cheney's impeachment in the Congressional Record!
The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings and debates of the United States Congress. It is published daily when Congress is in session and is fully searchable.
Every day that Congress is in session, Rep. Kucinich will submit 5 single-spaced pages of names with states, which is the daily limit under House rules. To be included, all you need to do is submit this petition.

This proposal came about on Thursday when representatives of Democrats.com and ImpeachforPeace.org spent the day on Capitol Hill meeting with Congress Members and their staffers. ImpeachforPeace.org has collected hand-written memorials in support of impeachment, following a precedent detailed in the Jefferson Manual. The individuals who have submitted these memorials will also have their names entered into the Congressional Record.
Our lobbying efforts found Congress edging closer and closer to impeachment. Congressional offices expressed growing awareness of citizen demand for impeachment - and citizen dissatisfaction with steps short of impeachment, such as issuing more disregarded subpoenas or passing meaningless censure resolutions.

Let Congress know you want nothing short of Impeachment. Be a part of history:

Liberty lies in the hearts of men and women; when it dies there, no Constitution, no court, can even do much to help it." -- Judge Learned Hand (1872-1961), Judge, U. S. Court of Appeals
