Wexler Screeches For Impeachment Based On McClellan Book
Wexler Impeachment Update/McClellan's Revelations
[Scotty saw Rove and Libby enter an office together. CHIMPEACHMENT NOW!!! And now a note from the Wexler For Congress Campaign...]
Last night, significant news broke that directly impacts our push for Impeachment Hearings and a possible Inherent Contempt charge for Bush Administration officials such as Karl Rove:
[Inherent contempt? Is there also an inherent impeachment?]
Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has revealed in his upcoming book that:
• Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and Vice President Cheney lied about their role in revealing the identity of Valerie Plame Wilson – actions easily amounting to obstruction of Justice.
[Wasn't Karl Rove already indicted on May 12, 2006?]
McClellan also admitted that:
[He saw the sun rise.]
• There was a coordinated effort within the Bush Administration to use propaganda to pump up the case for the Iraq war and hide the projected costs of the war from the public.
[And Deer In The Headlight McClellan was privy to all this? Would love to hear his testimony.]
Scott McClellan must be called to testify under oath before the House Judiciary Committee to tell Congress and the American people everything he knows about this massive effort by the White House to deceive this nation into war.
[He must. Before time runs out. HE MUST!!!]
Last week, a subpoena was issued for Karl Rove to testify before the Judiciary Committee. It appears he will take every legal action to block this subpoena. The truth is that Congress has the right – and obligation – to hold him accountable now - not months or years from now. It is long past time to pass Inherent Contempt and bring Rove, Libby and others before Congress.
[A new legal concept. Inherent contempt.]
We simply cannot ignore these recent developments, nor should we postpone serious inquiry until after the next election.
[Nothing political there? Right?]
Your commitment to accountability for the Bush/Cheney Administration, and the support of 230,000 other Americans who signed up at wexlerwantshearings.com, has inspired and motivated me in my effort to hold impeachment hearings for Vice President Dick Cheney and Inherent Contempt for Rove and others. During the past months I have been a tireless and dogged advocate of this vitally important cause.
[Let's say obsessed.]
Many of you have written me, asking for an update on where we stand with regards to impeachment hearings. I know most of you believe - as I do - that impeachment hearings for Vice President Cheney – are not only justified, but that it is our constitutional obligation to look into the serious allegations of wrongdoing that have been raised. This is especially true based on the newest revelations from Scott McClellan.
[His biggest revelation is that Scotty wanted some book cash.]
I believe that it is the duty of Congress to pursue impeachment whenever there's significant evidence of wrongdoing, be it by Republicans or Democrats, regardless of the timing of elections or the current political environment.
[Remember, 10 years ago liberal legal "experts" kept telling us that perjury is NOT grounds for impeachment.]
Some of you have written me demanding that I deliver hearings or impeachment. As hard as I have been fighting for this cause, I cannot make impeachment happen by myself. What I can do, and what I have been doing at every turn, is trying to communicate two simple messages to my colleagues:
[1. I'm a loon. 2. I need other loons to help me.]
• the serious allegations of wrongdoing and the clear-cut rationale for impeachment hearings;and
• the fact that the public will support our efforts when Congress boldly acts on the side of justice and accountability.
[The public will LAUGH at your efforts.]
Unfortunately, to date, these arguments have not been enough to convince even a majority of the liberal and progressive Members of Congress to support impeachment hearings. In addition, the leadership of the Democratic Party in Congress genuinely feels that pursuing impeachment will jeopardize our congressional agenda and threaten gains in the November elections. Although I genuinely disagree with this view, to date I have been unable to convince them to change this policy.
I understand the challenges that we are up against, and I recognize the odds that we face. Nevertheless, I remain unfazed and unyielding.
This new evidence from Scott McClellan could be the tipping point – but we must move quickly. I will use the McClellan admissions to help convince my colleagues that we must hold impeachment hearings.
[I would love to see McClellan look like a Deer In The Headlights again as he tries to answer your questions on Capitol Hill.]
Regardless, I will continue to fight for progressive values and our Constitution. I will do everything I can to pursue accountability for criminal actions taken by this Administration and this Vice President. I will be a furious opponent to any expansion of this misguided war, and I will fight against the use of torture by our government and to protect our civil liberties here at home.
[Stop the torture of the Gitmo prisoners by stopping their flow of airconditioning and overfeeding them.]
Most of all, I will continue my efforts to convince my fellow members of Congress and voters, that we should not be a party of passivity - but that we succeed when we present the public with stark choices that are based on the guarantees in our Constitution, and not on the politics of the moment.
[Oh no. No politics involved here at all.]
I will continue - at every pass - to call for impeachment and accountability. While I wish more of my colleagues supported our movement, we must not let our discouragement lead to apathy and distraction in this important election year when we must break free from eight long years of illegalities, corporate handouts, and a tragic and devastating war.
[Wexler calls for impeachment in his sleep.]
We should not end the calls for impeachment. I will push against the crimes of the Bush Administration whenever I am provided the opportunity. I will use my role on the Judiciary Committee to take on Administration officials – like I have done with Condoleezza Rice, Attorney Generals Gonzalez and Mukasey, and FBI Director Mueller.
[I will continue to act like a leftwing liberal loon.]
I have not given up our fight to hold this Administration accountable and neither can you. I am grateful for your patriotism and your support. I'll continue to keep you informed and part of the conversation.
[Good. That means more DUFU comedy material.]
Congressman Robert Wexler
[Thanx Bob. And now to hear from the KOmmies...]
I just hope Scotty "The Body" will spill his bloated guts. Even if it is just to up his book sales.
[He will if he needs more cash.]
If he can provide the key links required to put the Administration behind bars for their crimes, I'd be happy to buy a copy -- I'd try to get him, and all the Admin officials, to sign it, too. It'd be a collector's edition after the Administration got sent to the Hague.
[Congrats on being the first KOmmie to mention The Hague in this thread.]
If Rove continues to defy the summons shouldn't there be pressure on the networks to stop using him as a pundit?
[And replace him with a certain TruthOut pundit?]
The Hague IS possible. The Repuglicans are going to lose the election...
[So that means Obama will have them tried as war criminals?]
The heck with impeachment. how about going straight to a war crimes trial. Or maybe waiting until after Bush is out then putting him on trial for war crimes.
[The heck with a war crimes trial. How about going straight to jail?]
When Scotty appears please be sure to build the case for murder that officials in this administration have committed. That evidence, hopefully, will be used once Bush is out of office. Apparently Bugliosi is requesting help from 1000+ prosecuters to help build the case.
[Who was murdered? Vince Foster?]
did Fitzpatrick ever interview McClellan? and can he re-convene his investigations now?
[And can he re-indict Karl Rove on May 12, 2006?]
Get McClellan before the House Judiciary Committee now! There is no time to lose.
[Hurry! Hurry! Only a little over a half year left on the Chimpeachment clock!]
I would like see the prosecution of Karl Rove and Scooter Libby. I don't want impeachment of Bush, Cheney, Wolfowitz, and Rumsfeld. I want international war crimes to be brought against them. I would like to see them at the Hague and imprisoned. Yup.
[Yup. You are NUts.]
Rep. Wexler's on Randi Rhodes Show right now
[A very appropriate venue for him.]
Will you state now, for the record, you will pursue impeachment after they leave office?
[LOL! As if it is possible to impeach an officeholder AFTER he leaves office!]
Its never too late for impeachment. There is no expiration date in the Constitution for it.
[Not even when the officeholder leaves office?]
Karl Rove . . . It's time to arrest his ass.
[It will happen in 24 business hours.]
