I.M.P.E.A.C.H.M.E.N.T. !!!

I'm not going to beat the dead horse, at this time. The Mrs. did that earlier today on the subject. However, I will add my input based upon the lead story from Tuesday's "Countdown w/Keith Oberman".

Alison Stewart interviewed Senator Barbara Boxer (CA-D) on "Countdown" tonight. Senator Boxer sent letters for consultation with four presidential scholars on the President's "authorization" for domestic spying actities. Senator Boxer said that she had a discussion with former Watergate-era White House Counsel John Dean on Sunday, who is considered to be THE expert in impeachable offenses. In Mr. Dean's expert opinion "he ("W") is the first president to admit to committing an impeachable offense."

She also spoke about a letter from Sen. Rockefeller (WV-D), Vice-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, to Darth Cheney in July 2003, noting his "concern" of the legality and oversight of "these activities." He wrote this letter after having a meeting with the heads of the U.S. intelligence community.

Here is what is being said on "Daily Kos":

It's time to start a letter writing campaign. Here is a copy of what I sent my Congressman today (before the Boxer interview was aired). Please cut and paste your respective congressman's info as needed. You can also find and write to your Representative and Senators at the congressional websites, www.house.gov and www.senate.gov.

Honorable [NAME HERE]
United States [House of Representatives][Senate]


The recent revelations of the President's ABUSE of the Patriot Act and his "so called" authority under the provisions of Article II "giving him broad powers as Commander-in-Chief" are very disturbing. George Bush’s actions to authorize the warrantless surveillance of U.S. persons, in my opinion, are in VIOLATION of Title 18 USC, the FISA Act, EO 12333, and the Posse Comitatus Act. As an informed and concerned citizen, I view these actions as high crimes and impeachable offenses! The Patriot Act is not a cover or cure-all to subvert the law! It is not his job to write or interpret the law, but to execute the federal policies and administrative functions as prescribed by the laws written and approved by the Congress and the rulings of the Supreme Court and the federal district courts.

As the [Representative][Senator] for the Citizens of the [Nth Congressional District of the] Commonwealth / State of [STATE HERE], it is you solemn and highest duty to enforce the Constitution under the powers granted to Congress under Article I, and inform the President that he over-reached the bounds of his authority, which cannot be tolerated. The only action that's warranted under these circumstances is to move for a congressional investigation to determine if impeachment proceedings are in order!

For the security of the United States and the preservation and enforcement of the Supreme Law of the Land, I strongly urge you to act quickly to uphold the Law. This isn't a case of lying to Congress over a blow job; it is a repetitive abuse of power!

With honor and respect,
