GOP uber alles
Gotta hand it to the GOP, when faced with the ruination of the Republican party as a result of their criminality and incompetence, they are gonna go over that cliff united behind our worst president and his lawbreaking minions:
House prepares to file contempt charges against Bush aides
Democratic aides tell RAW STORY that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is preparing to bring the contempt citations passed by the Judiciary Committee to the full House for a vote.
Judiciary Committee Republicans on Wednesday sent a letter to Pelosi asking her not to pursue the criminal charges, arguing the attorney firing investigation so far has failed to demonstrate any malfeasance by the administration.
“Rather than conclude the investigation, Democrats now plan to take this meaningless pursuit one step further,” read the letter co-signed by ranking member Lamar Smith and nine other GOP judiciary panel members. “Bringing contempt charges against Ms. Miers and Mr. Bolten is a waste of valuable time and would force a constitutional confrontation that is unwarranted.”</em>
And as an aside? There can never be an “unwarranted” constitutional confrontation.
