Ron Hutcheson writes for Knight Ridder Newspapers that "some legal experts asserted that Bush broke the law on a scale that could warrant his impeachment.
"(TM)'The president's dead wrong. It's not a close question. Federal law is clear,' said Jonathan Turley, a law professor at George Washington University and a specialist in surveillance law. 'When the president admits that he violated federal law, that raises serious constitutional questions of high crimes and misdemeanors.'
"There's little enthusiasm for impeachment in the Republican-controlled Congress, but few lawmakers have rallied to Bush's defense."
Here's commentator Jack Cafferty on CNN yesterday: "If you listen carefully, you can hear the word impeachment. Two congressional Democrats are using it. And they're not the only ones."
Newsweek columnist Jonathan Alter writes about the spying program : "This will all play out eventually in congressional committees and in the United States Supreme Court. If the Democrats regain control of Congress, there may even be articles of impeachment introduced. Similar abuse of power was part of the impeachment charge brought against Richard Nixon in 1974."
This spying on our citizens is big stuff...
I heard Lowry on Fox News trying to justify this crap, saying that "maybe he didn't have probable cause" in trying to defend this lawlessness.
Earth to Lowry: if he didn't have probable cause he had no lawful justification to spy on US citizens.
So, if it's a Dem Congress in 06, impeachment is pretty certain. I guess the Repubs can run on a slogan of "Our guy is guilty, and vote for us if you don't want him brought to justice."
