According to reports today, there may be a genuine clash between Congress and the President in the near future. Finally!
Democratic lead Congress is demanding accountability in the firing of 8 federal prosecutors who were investigating Republican wrongdoing by AG Gonzales for what appears to be partisan reasons. Congress has threatened to issue subpoenas to get to the bottom of this.
What is Bush’s response? “I’ll let Rove testify to Congress, but not publicly and not under oath.”
Interpretation: “I’ll let Rove lie to Congress because that is what he does best, but I don’t want him to be guilty of perjury while he does it.”
This is a BLATANT attempt to cover-up the usual myriad of lies that come out of this administration. The solution? Impeachment of both Bush and Cheney I say! It is the ONLY reasonable response to this flagrant abuse of power.
