The People of the United States v. George Walker Bush


Kagro X has a post up today passing on word from Emptywheel that Scottie McClellan basically revealed that the Bushter his own rotten self authorized leaking the identity of Valerie Wilson, to which I say NAIL THAT MOFO!

In said post it is noted that this came from a report of the House Judiciary Committee:
In the [Virginia constitutional ratifying] convention George Mason argued that the President might use his pardoning power to "pardon crimes which were advised by himself" or, before indictment or conviction, "to stop inquiry and prevent detection." James Madison responded:

[I]f the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds to believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty...
Oh, baby, do it!

Damn right, reps, do impeachment!

I heard Scottie tell the story on Countdown. A lotta CYA happenin' here, but he adds another layer of truth from the inside. That's good.
