An impeachable offense

John Dean, former White House counsel to Nixon analyzes the still emerging details of the NSA scandal and finds it to be even more an impeachable offense than the similar domestic surveillance infractions of Nixon that led to his impeachment. As Dean points out, it could have justified immediately after 9/11. It could have been satisfactorily explained as a response to an actual credible threat but there is really no excuse to flagrantly violate the law for over two years when he could have simply gone to a GOP dominated Congress and asked them to change the law to allow it.

I've thought from the beginning that Bush's real agenda was not to save this country but to destroy the republic and with every little chip he takes at the foundations of our current form of government, I'm only more convinced it's true.

Thanks for the link. I forgot to check John Dean last night, and in th e corruption of this whitehouse, he has become required reading.

I'm surprised he doesn't get more play, what with the experience he has in corrupt Republican administrations. You would think a "liberal media" would be playing this sort of work up, wouldn't you?
