The presidency is now a criminal conspiracy

Olbermann: Bush may not observe the rules, but the country abides by them
"Now if that's what this is all about, you tortured not because you're so stupid you think torture produces confession but you tortured because you're smart enough to know it produces really authentic-sounding fiction — well, then, you're going to need all the lawyers you can find … because that crime wouldn't just mean impeachment, would it? That crime would mean
George W. Bush is going to prison."

If Bush has committed these crimes -- which I believe he has -- then those who block the investigation could be implicated for obstruction of justice, or not fully asserting their oath. In plain English this means any call by the DNC leadership to do nothing -- and take impeachment off the table -- is an alleged breach of the oath of office, and a subsequent crime, 5 USC 3331.

But there is a solution. There is an effort under way to remove Pelosi as Speaker -- now, before the election -- to make way for impeachment. ( Details )

My two Senators could be convinced to stand with impeachment (I think), but my rep sure can't. The DNC runs deep...thanks for stopping by with the thought provoking and well linked comment!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
