Sunday, February 11, 2007Recently uncovered news certainly solidifies the case for impeachment against Vice President Dick Cheney. Major Danby at Daily Kos has the details HERE.
The issue is not original. Among the charges approved by the House Judiciary Committee when it recommended its articles of impeachment against President Nixon was "illegal wiretaps." President Nixon, the bill charged, "caused wiretaps to be placed on the telephones of 17 persons without having obtained a court order authorizing the tap, as required by federal law; in violation of Sections 241, 371 and 2510-11 of the Criminal Code."How many more days before the 110th Congress puts Impeachment back on the table?
Under his program, President Bush could probably be charged with wiretapping not 17 but thousands of people without having obtained a court order authorizing the taps as required by federal law, in violation of FISA.
