Forget impeachment

The Bush administration is guilty of leaking legal spying and effecting illegal domestic spying, and then has the gall to attack the leaking of the illegal domestic spying. Right wing talk radio even calls it the "domestic spying program," like it’s no big deal. For all we know, the most secretive administration in history is snouting around for private personal details of political opponents, an unfair advantage indeed, even when the victim has nothing to hide. People who think this is ok are nothing but a bunch of low-life, voyeuristic perverts. Forget impeachment. Just indict the president.

Sounds right to me, but not something republicans are likely to do any time soon. That's one of those differences between democrats and republicans that are too subtle for some people to comprehend. ;-)

That's just it, the Dems don't have the House and Senate, so there's no point in pursuing impeachment unless they take control in the midterm elections and if they get their act together, a big if. Meanwhile, though, I'm not aware of any law against indicting a sitting president. Correct me if I'm wrong, but as I understand it, it's just never been attempted before.

From my cousin:

--good analysis--but i am sure you can indict a sitting president--separation of powers you know--just
impeachment...but i think he will resign this year...and interesting to watch his mental state.

He is the first president,to admit to an impeachable offense.

Yeah, I heard that. What was the exact quote and what was the law broken?

It was a quote from Chuck Colsen. We'll soon find out which law.

Yeah, but what did the president say? It's interesting that Colson is a conservative media personality, but does he have the legal authority to back up the claim?
