Rove Fears Impeachment - Threatens Senators
Saw this on AirAmerica earlier tonight. Things could be interesting given Spector and Lindsey Graham are pretty critical of the whole thing. If the two side with the dems than there would be nothing left but to draft up articles of impeachment. Interesting times indeed.
Tuesday, Feb 7th: Close to Impeachment?
How close are we to impeaching George W. Bush? Close enough that Karl Rove has issued clear, concise threats to the Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. According to the extreme right-wing publication "Insight," - a subsidiary of the Washington Times and owned by the crazed, self-proclaimed "reincarnation of Jesus Christ" Rev. Sun Myung Moon - "Congressional sources said Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove has threatened to blacklist any Republican who votes against the president. The sources said the blacklist would mean a halt in any White House political or financial support of senators running for reelection in November." The article, in a curiously subdued way, goes on to say, "The sources said the administration has been alarmed over the damage that could result from the Senate hearings, which began on Monday, Feb. 6. They said the defection of even a handful of Republican committee members could result in a determination that the president violated the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. Such a determination could lead to impeachment proceedings." That last sentence bears repeating: "Such a determination could lead to impeachment proceedings." The political makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee is 10 Republicans and eight Democrats. The shift in the vote of two Republicans would result in a decision that would mandate the filing of a bill of impeachment against Bush. Two votes. Insight adds that over the last few weeks, Mr. Rove has been calling in virtually every Republican on the Senate committee as well as the leadership in Congress. The sources said Mr. Rove's message has been that a vote against Mr. Bush would destroy GOP prospects in congressional elections. Possibly. However, what is absolute is a vote against Bush by two Republican members of the Judiciary Committee would result in the end of this corrupt, neo-Nazi regime; the end of the criminal activity and the incompetence that has taken this country into a moral, financial and ethical pit so deep it will take years to emerge. Democratic members of the Congress are incapable of showing courage against this takedown of democratic government. Are the Republicans also? We'll talk about it tonight. Join me.-MM
