Cheney's Smokin' Gun Pointed At Bush...

Cheney's Handwritten Notes Implicate Bush in Plame Affair
Handwritten notes by Vice President Dick Cheney, introduced at trial by defense attorneys for former White House staffer I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, would appear to implicate George W. Bush in the Plame CIA Leak case.

Bush has long maintained that he was unaware of attacks by any member of his administration against [former ambassador Joseph] Wilson. The ex-envoy's stinging rebukes of the administration's use of pre-war Iraq intelligence led Libby and other White House officials to leak Wilson's wife's covert CIA status to reporters in July 2003 in an act of retaliation.
But Cheney's notes, which were introduced into evidence Tuesday during Libby's perjury and obstruction-of-justice trial, call into question the truthfulness of President Bush's vehement denials about his prior knowledge of the attacks against Wilson. The revelation that Bush may have known all along that there was an effort by members of his office to discredit the former ambassador begs the question: Was the president also aware that senior members of his administration compromised Valerie Plame's undercover role with the CIA? <more>

Yes... Thanks again Jason, and Mr. Ash.

So was this part done legally then???--

In late June or early July 2003, "a question was asked of me - by Scooter Libby: Does the president have authority to declassify information?" Addington told jurors Monday, in response to a question by defense attorney William Jeffress. "And the answer I gave was, 'Of course, yes. It's clear the president has the authority to determine what constitutes a national security secret and who can have access to it.'"

President Bush signed an executive order in 2003 authorizing Cheney to declassify certain intelligence documents. The order was signed on March 23, four days after the start of the Iraq War and two weeks after Wilson first appeared on the administration's radar.

and (I didn't have time to read all) does the Wilson filing you posted - SPB - address this??

No holes bared. Now it's time to start the impeachment of George W. Bush. Not to mention that now World leaders know Bush is a proven liar. Now Cheney isn't out of the woods on this either. Now it's time for the two Presidents to fight each other
President Bush vs President Cheney

Both are losers.

"but also raises serious questions about potentially criminal actions by Bush. If Bush did indeed play an active role in encouraging Libby to take the fall to protect Karl Rove, as Libby's lawyers articulated in their opening statements, then that could be viewed as criminal involvement by Bush."

Oh we hope so...

I printed out the notes this morning to read and I wondered if that chicken scratch meant the President -- some of the notes were hard to read..

For Patriot Girl:

I had to skimmed over the Wilsons' file. Here we go.

Judicial Watch addressed important issues of laws raised by Cheney.
Judicial Watch is a not-for-profit organization that seeks to promote accountability to the rule of law.

According to the filing:

Judicial Watch is particularly concerned about the Vice President’s assertion of absolute
immunity. Second, the absolute immunity advocated by the Vice President is based largely on an overly broad interpretation of Cheney v. U.S. District Court, 542 U.S. 367 (2004), a case in which Judicial Watch was a party.

On page 2, Cheney argues his case based on Nixon Vs. Fitzgerald (1982). According to filing, ). In his brief, the Vice President contends that the Amended Complaint should be dismissed in its entirety because “the Vice President of the United States is absolutely immune from civil suit when acting in his official capacity.”

Judicial Watch is stating thst Cheney is not grsnted absolute immunity. On page 3:

Contrary to the Vice President’s contentions, the U.S. Supreme Court did not recognize a
blanket, absolute immunity for the President in Fitzgerald. Rather, the Court held that, under a
certain set of circumstances, the President is entitled to absolute immunity. In fact, the Court clearly confirmed that there were circumstances under which the exercise of judicial jurisdiction over the President was warranted.

Footnote:

"The Vice President also argues that U.S. CONST. amend. XXV justifies absolute
immunity for the Office of the Vice President. Mot. to Dismiss at 20. However, in the event that
U.S. CONST. amend. XXV became necessary, the Vice President would no longer be acting in his
role as Vice President, but instead in the role of President, affording him all of the powers and
duties of that office. Triggering U.S. CONST. amend. XXV does not grant absolute immunity to
the Vice President. Rather, it makes the issue moot."

The phrase “absolute immunity” does not appear in the Court’s opinion. In this civil lawsuit case, Cheney is being sued in his individual capacity, not in his official capacity.



Hope this info helps!

Well Cheney has been functioning as the de facto president for so long, that he may think that he can claim absolute immunity. What arrogance if that is the case. And, there's no way that this ball of fecal material did not start at the very top of the heap. I'll bet Karl Rove is not having a peachy time these days and I'll bet that Bush is not sleeping as well as he wants everyone to think he is (without major meds). The fur is flying between the P and the VP. Heh.

Matt Cooper sums it up well...

From FDL:

Matt Cooper: If I may elucidate. What struck me as a contradiction, on one hand, after Wilson published op-ed, the Admin did something that it rarely does, which is acknowledge a big error. That was a big deal, I was very struck by that. But then I was struck all week by statements that seemed to be disparaging Mr Wilson. They were saying you're right, it shouldn't have been. Then they were saying, he's a momma's boy, his report was bad.

Quick statement
Will the media report the Smokin Gun information or will they follow orders and bury it so the TV viewers never know that Bush now has an impeachable offense and his been lying for 6 years. We'll see the evening news. We know thanks to Judy that the papers and media are in Bush's back pocket now they can show he's not. Oh as for that immunity well Nixon didn't get it nor will either President Bush or President Cheney.

Patriot Girl:

Cheney is certainly toasted of trying to claim "absolute immunity." He screwed three ways:

1. Cheney is being sued in his individual capacity (unlike the Clinton vs. Jones case where Clinton was sued in his official capacity).

2. Clinton was denied by the Supreme Court immunity of being sued in a civil suit as a sitting President. And since Cheney is a V.P., there is not law written that says that a V.P. is granted absolute immunity from a civil law suit.

3. Since Cheney is pleading his case based on Clinton's impeachment, one thing that Cheney has to keep in mind is that the Supreme Court ruled that Clinton can be sued in a civil suit whether he was a sitting President or ex-President and private citizen. And since Cheney is trying to claim the title, co-President, Clinton's impeachment and Clinton's civil lawsuit will work against him.

Impeachment proceedings aren't necessary, but criminal ones are. You cannot make impeachment charges stick, it won't work. Name one President to have been successfully impeached. Treason charges won't work either, because they are equally difficult to establish under the criteria of how they are tried. It's the 200th anniversary of the the Aaron Burr trial, I advise all to do a search on it. Or, read my article on it at my blog! ;0)

Yup.. The Wilsons' attorneys got Cheney's number. And notice that Cheney is the only one out the group fighting absolute immunity and not Rove and Libby. And of course, Libby and Rove can't claim immunity at all. This will be an interesting case of these three as they are being sued as individual officials. Cotchett and Sloan are very clever attorneys for the Wilsons.

Jeffers could easily pass for a used car salesman by day, who hangs out at smokey dives hunting for bar flies by night.

Big Whoop and big photo-op. 5 damn years later, many deaths, and only 25 million for their health care. Remember the pile of rubble and the bull horn he used with the old guy for his photo op to get himself re-elected and promote his wars?

This case is all over the place with more leaks then ever. Now we know Bush/Cheney were committing Treason as noted with the Smokin Gun.
I didn't know what Wells was up to now I think I know. He is going to make the jurors think of Libby as the victims by Bush/Cheney. Now yes he lied or so called lost memory but spin this case for the jurors to feel Libby was used and give him pity for his actions of lying. It's called the Powerful men using the little man. It's the simply vote or root for the underdog. That's the only way out for him as he is guilty as hell. Now Wells will pour out the information that Libby has on the White House in hopes the jurors are more mad at Bush/Cheney then him for lying. Cheney thinks he has executive privilege like Bush so he feels he can't be charged with the crimes he committed. Yes Bush and Cheney committed treason by leaking a covert agents name so let's see how that plays out the people and the government.

Jackie - if Libby or Cheney don't take the stand, we'll have to try to help make sure that The People understand that 2-3 months worth of Team Fitz' expenses should be accounted to the defense.

Overall, I think the taxpayers have gotten a pretty darn good bang for the buck with this investigation - regardless of the outcome of this particular trial and especially if additional charges ensue. IMHO the MSM deserves this public shaming and hopefully, they will follow their moral compasses a bit more closely in the future.

He was also the presiding Judge for Steven Hatfill’s trial in the anthrax attacks. Bush and White House Staff started taking Cipro on 9/11/01.

He’s the only judge to have his financial records redacted. This appears to be in violation of the Ethics in Government Act, which is supposed to identify conflicts of interest.

If Judge Reggie is in violation of the Ethics in Government Act, what is the process to get him removed?

Mr. Fitzgerald

Please end our "national nightmare"!!!!! You are in our prayers and may be the last good man standing -Our country needs your acumen, courage and fortitude now. Not just our country, but the world-Cheney is mad with power and will not hesitate to propel us into a war with Iran to take the press off of his testimony or indictment-Please bring him down!!!!!for us, and all of the people of the world (Iraqis to date) -but many more to come if we are thrust into WWIII. I pray for God to give you strength and courage.
