Kucinich Was Only Warming Us Up: McClellan to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee

by jhwygirl

Kucinich was just warming us up – on June 20th, former Bush Whitehouse press secretary Scott McClellan will be testifying before the House Judiciary Committee regarding what he knows about the leaking of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame, who was working to prevent the underground trade in yellowcake uranium.

It’s my belief that Vice-President Dick Cheney was the source of the leak, and as such, committed treason. Libby Scooter, Cheney’s chief of staff, was sentenced to jail for obstruction of justice – for failure to reveal who told him that Plame was a spy – for failure to reveal the source of the leak. There’s way more to what has formed my firm belief that Cheney leaked Plame’s name – and anyone with time and motivation can go out and inform themselves. It’s not like there’s a dearth of information on the issue.

Last April, Kucinich had introduced a resolution of articles of impeachment against Dick Cheney. The resolution was killed, but only after Republicans voted in favor of taking up the measure to force a debate.

I know this all seems too radical for some, but the Constitution is the damned basis of our Government – and illegal torture, misuse of the FISA court, illegal surveillance, destruction of evidence, suspension of habeas corpus, war crimes, treason – at what point do Americans stand firm and say “No More”? At what point do our elected officials stand tall and speak up for our government? The government which our forefathers envisioned and put onto paper?

Scotty testifies on the 20th…and despite what I’ve thought about his need for a paycheck, maybe he really is seeking redemption. He might want to think about getting a bullet-proof vest and a bodyguard, though – they may come in handy.


  1. What are the odds of getting Teton County declared a sanctuary-free zone for war criminals? Then, when Cheney shows up Jan. 21 to retire into his mountain redoubt, we can arrest him for war crimes and ship him off to Gitmo.

    Not on my list of what needs to be addressed by congress, but…they could be up to a lot of mischief, so great, let them relive the detritus and effluvia of the last eight years.

  3. Mike – Scooter told Judy Miller, at the rodeo there downtown: “You went into jail in the summer. It is fall now. You will have stories to cover — Iraqi elections and suicide bombers, biological threats and the Iranian nuclear program. Out west, where you vacation, the aspens will already be turning. They turn in clusters, because their roots connect them. Come back to work — to life.” Creepy.

    Cheney lives there, Raygun (Mr. I negotiate with terrorists) loved the place….

    It could be that Teton County already is a war criminal sanctuary.

    If Cheney or Rove are indicted or convicted, Bush will just pardon them.They are probably already picking the next Scooter Libby to take the fall. The faithful will spout the talking points of the right while criminals spin public opinion. Teton County will get Cheney like brazil got the nazi’s. At some point these guys are going to hear from ‘We the People”. Probably not until they are out of office. It is time to become invovled in governing our country.
