Bush Admits to Impeachable Offense

Posted in Uncategorized by johnnycougar on December 19, 2005

Bush is making it very easy for the Democrats to impeach him once they gain the majority in both houses of Congress. John Dean (former counsel to Nixon) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) agree that Bush admitting to spying on Americans without a warrant is an impeachable offense.

Boxer’s letter to constitutional scholars is here:

On December 16, along with the rest of America, I learned that President Bush authorized the National Security Agency to spy on Americans without getting a warrant from a judge. President Bush underscored his support for this action in his press conference today.

On Sunday, December 18, former White House Counsel John Dean and I participated in a public discussion that covered many issues, including this surveillance. Mr. Dean, who was President Nixon’s counsel at the time of Watergate, said that President Bush is “the first President to admit to an impeachable offense.” Today, Mr. Dean confirmed his statement.

This startling assertion by Mr. Dean is especially poignant because he experienced first hand the executive abuse of power and a presidential scandal arising from the surveillance of American citizens.

Given your constitutional expertise, particularly in the area of presidential impeachment, I am writing to ask for your comments and thoughts on Mr. Dean’s statement.

Unchecked surveillance of American citizens is troubling to both me and many of my constituents. I would appreciate your thoughts on this matter as soon as possible.

Bush seems to be the first in a lot of endeavors…starting a war based on lies, openly advocating for torture by the government, admitting to spying on Americans. Hey, wait! Aren’t these the things that Saddam Hussein did? Maybe the reason Bush really invaded Iraq was because of jealousy!

    He may be the worst, but not the first. The Gulf of Tonkin incident was a distortion that fueled the beginning of the Vietnam War.

    He is the first to openly advocate for torture, although definitely not the first to advocate for torture. See Naomi Klein’s article here.

    Well, technically, the Vietnam War already started before we got involved militarily. The Iraq War was 100% created out of a peaceful situation by The Bush Administration alone. Hence the first President to “start a war based on llies.”
