Impeachment hearings: The White House prepares for the worst

The Bush administration is bracing for impeachment hearings in Congress.

"A coalition in Congress is being formed to support impeachment," an administration source said.

Sources said a prelude to the impeachment process could begin with hearings by the Senate Judiciary Committee in February. They said the hearings would focus on the secret electronic surveillance program and whether Mr. Bush violated the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Administration sources said the charges are expected to include false reports to Congress as well as Mr. Bush's authorization of the National Security Agency to engage in electronic surveillance inside the United States without a court warrant. This included the monitoring of overseas telephone calls and e-mail traffic to and from people living in the United States without requisite permission from a secret court.

Sources said the probe to determine whether the president violated the law will include Republicans, but that they may not be aware they could be helping to lay the groundwork for a Democratic impeachment campaign against Mr. Bush.

"Our arithmetic shows that a majority of the committee could vote against the president," the source said. "If we work hard, there could be a tie."

The law limits the government surveillance to no more than 72 hours without a court warrant. The president, citing his constitutional war powers, has pledged to continue wiretaps without a warrant.

The hearings would be accompanied by several lawsuits against the administration connected to the surveillance program. At the same time, the Electronic Privacy Information Center has filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that demands information about the NSA spying.

Sen. Arlen Specter, Senate Judiciary Committee chairman and Pennsylvania Republican, has acknowledged that the hearings could conclude with a vote of whether Mr. Bush violated the law. Mr. Specter, a critic of the administration’s surveillance program, stressed that, although he would not seek it, impeachment is a possible outcome.

"Impeachment is a remedy," Mr. Specter said on Jan. 15. "After impeachment, you could have a criminal prosecution. But the principal remedy under our society is to pay a political price."

Mr. Specter and other senior members of the committee have been told by legal constitutional experts that Mr. Bush did not have the authority to authorize unlimited secret electronic surveillance. Another leading Republican who has rejected the administration's argument is Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas.

On Jan. 16, former Vice President Al Gore set the tone for impeachment hearings against Mr. Bush by accusing the president of lying to the American people. Mr. Gore, who lost the 2000 election to Mr. Bush, accused the president of "indifference" to the Constitution and urged a serious congressional investigation. He said the administration decided to break the law after Congress refused to change the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

"A president who breaks the law is a threat to the very structure of our government," Mr. Gore said.

"I call upon members of Congress in both parties to uphold your oath of office and defend the Constitution,” he said. “Stop going along to get along. Start acting like the independent and co-equal branch of American government that you are supposed to be under the constitution of our country."

Impeachment proponents in Congress have been bolstered by a memorandum by the Congressional Research Service on Jan. 6. CRS, which is the research arm of Congress, asserted in a report by national security specialist Alfred Cumming that the amended 1947 law requires the president to keep all members of the House and Senate intelligence committees "fully and currently informed" of a domestic surveillance effort. It was the second CRS report in less than a month that questioned the administration's domestic surveillance program.

The latest CRS report said Mr. Bush should have briefed the intelligence committees in the House and Senate. The report said covert programs must be reported to House and Senate leaders as well as the chairs of the intelligence panels, termed the "Gang of Eight."

Administration sources said Mr. Bush would wage a vigorous defense of electronic surveillance and other controversial measures enacted after 9/11. They said the president would begin with pressure on Republican members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Mr. Bush would then point to security measures taken by the former administration of President Bill Clinton.

"The argument is that the American people will never forgive any public official who knowingly hurts national security," an administration source said. "We will tell the American people that while we have done everything we can to protect them, our policies are being endangered by a hypocritical Congress."

Scrambling now to cover their tracks. This should be a lesson to anyone in public office, particularly a president,to have those lawyers around you that give you guidance have the background to give you honest and proven constitutional grounds for your decision. Unfortunately, this spoiled child brooks no one's opinion if it does not agree with hiw own. Hopefully, he is now stewing in his own juice. Obviously, anyone who feels that the Constitution is just "a goddam piece of paper", should have had better counsel, or at least more responsible counsel.

I'm sure no one wants to go through another impeachment. This issue, and those tied to it should not, however, be swept under the carpet. If impeachment is the solution....so be it!

and in addition, it certainly proves that neither AG Gonzales or Harriet Miers deserved a nomination to the Supreme Court. It is obvious that their knowledge of Constitutional Law did not go any further than the two classes they might have taken getting their JD's, which was a LONG time ago.

Well, this is a taste of history repeating itself. First, Nixon and now Bush. It is such a shame that it took this long for the American people to wake up and realize the incompetence and corruption in the government and how we take our freedoms for granted. We will wait for the drama to unfold for Bush's impeachment. It will take a long time for this country to heal mentally, emotionally, and physically once the cancer is removed in what we call: the Administration.

Bush's new folksy approach (taking unscripted questions from the audience) seems to be a preemptive move to win public support for the NSA actions. Will it be enough? I doubt it.

However, I am guessing that it also indicates that the President is taking strategy advice from someone besides Karl (never say you're sorry) Rove these days. Perhaps Rove's replacement is warming up in the wings?

I want to believe that this site is the blog Of Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case, but I have many doubts. I am not sure how I can be convinced. In the past, I have encountered too many liars online. For example, there is a guy in the politics chat on Yahoo who use the ID of Christopher Hitchens. Even his profile claims that he is Hitchens. I know the guy is a phony but it took some exploring to find out this information. Do any of you know that this blog is actually that of Patrick Fitzgerald? If you have some concrete evidence, e-mail me at imswoman@yahoo.com I doubt if I will hear from anyone.....you are all believer because you want to be. There are too many partisan comments for my comfort zone. I like what I read here, but I am sure not everyone who visits this site does and that is what worries me about its authenticity.

Kelo was a 5-4 decision, written by John Paul Stevens, and dissented by Rehnquist, Scalia, Thomas, and O'Connor. It does not behoove you to sit here on a liberal blog and badmouth a decision by the liberal justices. All of the justices who dissented in Bush V. Gore voted with the majority in Kerry, so your argument is internally inconsistent.

Fitz / Kerry

We'll need some serious reform on voting methodologies for a true, POTUS election in '08; something about that firm that employed the corrupt character Abramoff, involved in the recount, mmmm..

To the matters at hand:
Mr Kerry I respectfully must disagree with you that this is a liberal blog -- other than that statement, your points otherwise of truest merit.

I'll stand with you if you're VP, or Sec of State and Fitz is POTUS '08!

Believe both traditional parties have suffered corruption [perhaps not to the same extent];
we'll need someone without the political background to truly restore honesty, integrity and the backbone of American ethics in to the Oval and the entire Administration-

We're no longer in Kansas.
The level of corruption within the many dimensions of government and to the extent at which it is halted by Impeachment, Indictments of any and all points, through PJF and his team will have forever helped to change the course of history, our future.

Personally, I think the mangler-in- chief's comment about the
"Electrical College" versus
Electoral College
was just a sneak peak/prelude of the gems to come during his tenure.

He is not a humble man, nor is he well spoken, versed or educated. To me, he now represents the antithesis of what we look for in a great president. He would make a great 'frat president' but that's about it.
He may have the piece of paper, [doubltful he truly earned it] and I'd be hard pressed to find someone of lesser 'ilk' such as Jodie Foster who graduated from Yale to have mis-used the english language so frequently.

Yes, good riddance to bad rubbish. I had to chuckle about Bush's comment about the "Electrical College." Let's hope that we don't make that mistake of putting in another illiterate president. I remember seeing Michael Moore's film when Bush said that he is war president and that he has war in his mind. I said to myself in the movie theater: is this the best we can do? And whomever keeps the Bush's blundering quotes on a notepad and sell it, they certainly will make a mint when Bush is gone from office. My suggestion is to sell it on Ebay! Good night!

I just read on MSNBC that the White House came up with a new name for spying. Bush now calls it "terrorist surveillance." If Bush thinks that he can win the public with this new name and pull his troublesome poll numbers in his upcoming State of Union address next week, he is simply clueless and in denial. Bush can use any word in the English dictionary but it is still spying. Bush is using the antics as Pat Robertson when Rev. Robertson said on TV. that we should "take out" Hugo Chavez. And what did Robertson mean by "taking out?" like taking Chevez to dine out in a restaurant??? I don't think so...

I see there is no new post for Wednesday. Interesting. I ask yesterday if anyone had concrete proof that this blog was, indeed, that of the special prosecutor in the CIA leak case, Patrick J. Fitzgerald as its author claims. Well, I received an e-mail from some person calling himself "nameless chum" explaining to me that everyone knew that this site was a parody and of course was NOT the work of the real PJF. Well, I hope everyone knows that because I consider this blog and any of them whose authors use the names of famous or well-known living persons in the same category as the author Frey and its faux memoir A Million Little Pieces. People have to speak-up and demand the truth or all we will have on this media is a bunch of lies and unknowns seek attention by falsely assigning other people's name to their blogs, etc. It comes down to the question of "How do the users of the Internet separate the facts from the fiction?" The reliable sources of information from the crap? I admire Patrick J. Fitzgerald and hate the fact that some moron(s) is/are use the name, pictures. etc., of this honorable man for their own selfish, amusing, or malicious purposes. Much of the information posted on this blog can be found on other legimate sites and without the pretense or "parody." of the author(s) pretending to be a person that he is not. ( And, I use the male pronoun "HE" because the author made certain to include that in the profile... as if any reader wouldn't know that Patrick J. Fitzgerald was "MALE." Is there any female out there who failed to notice PJF was MALE after seeing him on the TV or in the magazines? I doubt it!)
For those of you who don't care if the blog is that of the real Patrick J. Fitzgerald, consider the fact that some Rightwinger, neoconservative is writing this blog and you are being played for a fool with your liberal comments...which is what I have found mostly in the comments. Hey, don't get me wrong, I agree with many of the comments, but there are many great liberal and progressive blogs on which you can posted your comments and they are good sites and not some parody! I hope to see this blog shut down because Patrick J. Fitzgerald is one of the few honest and decent men leave in D.C. Don't contribute to this nonsense and abuse!

Good hearing from Bluewild! I haven't seen any entries from a couple of days.

Now, your response about Bin Laden and Bush's comments about Bin Laden. As in the movie, All the President's Men: FOLLOW THE MONEY! As you can see, ever since September 11, Bush hasn't put any effort to find Bin Laden. You notice that when Bin Laden came out with another tape(that if that was Bin Laden), Homeland Security didn't raise the color level. But,according to the news, in Los Angeles, CA, the mayor of the city had a lot police officers patrolling the city and airports for suspicious activity after the news of Bin Laden's tape. What does that tell you? A lot of the questions that you are asking can be figured out from movies such as Fahrenheit 9/11, Syrianna, and All the President's Men. Bob Woodward's book, The Secret Man, gives a lot of education of corruption in the White House from Mark Felt. This whole corruption in the White House is another repeated history page of the Watergate Scandal in 1972.

Our rights are from Nature's God at least, and the Universal Father at best. These are not a privilege granted by authorities, who are more properly called public servants when they uphold the rights of all citizens and human beings. It says "persons," in the Constitution, not just citizens when referring to human rights. By the same token when vested interests seek more and more space for their activities, and ask others to give up their rights, they are sadly mistaken.

What has been happening is an inversion of the entire intent of government as we have designed it. Think about the American Revolution and that it was in some measure about granting ourselves the same rights as Englishmen enjoyed. Since the Monarch was not treating us as equal to any other English citizens, we revolted and "dissolved those political bands."

By the same measure we are operating our government in the wrong direction as clear common sense and understanding of the Constitution of the United States is concerned.

The entire Homeland Security apparatus and Patriot Act should be solely directed at internal investigations of the government itself. Upon completion of sensible reordering of obvious anti-social patterns into social patterns such a law and organization should be dissolved. That is the logical consequence of the story upon which it is based, which is absurd, considering even one of a number of proofs of initial suspicions of the same shadow government Senator Inouye spoke years ago. Project Northwoods is compelling, just as other readings of historical insights. September 11, 2001 did not happen as it was given in the mainstream news; you can Google that, as least until February. Government sometimes does anti-social things to their own people, and our own Constitution was developed for a ceterus paribus and balance of what is necessary and what is not.

Impeachment alone will do nothing, if the same behaviors continue from our military, and from our business sectors when they act divorced from simple social responsibility.
