like I said before.


Of all the blatantly impeachable shiat the Bush admin. has done they are getting them over firing federal prosecutors?

I think that is not quite possible.

Well, that just changes the laws on the books, eh?

Thank goodness for the democrats. If not for them, someone might actually be doing something in washington that would make a difference to this country.
Way to waste time and money on bullshiat, thanks.

I've re-read every answer you posted. I don't see where you wrote the republicans that are being denied the right to a fair trial. Something like this:

Making a difference is not always positive.

If the allegations are true, the firing of at least Lam was probably illegal.

There is no way to know if the allegations are true except by compelling people related to the firings to testify and to submit related evidence.

The staff communication on this issue did not involve the president (allegedly) and did not result in an advice to the president (allegedly).

So exactly why are people arguing against the subpoena?
 
2007-03-28 02:16:04 PM
If the allegations are true, it makes the ubiquitous "some people" wonder what was or wasn't done by those who weren't fired.
 
2007-03-28 02:16:08 PM

Do you have any clue as to which party was in office the past 6 years? You know, the same years that we've seen a record deficit, record spending and 1 trillion dollars spent in Iraq that have yeilded a country that is no more self-reliant than it was 3 years ago?

But you're probably right. That whole Terri Schiavo emergency legislation thing made a significant difference to this country, despite democratic interference.

this thread is intelligent, trolling, funny, sad, stupid, and so many other words....

yes some on the far left have it in their minds maybe this is like capone's mail fraud for bush...

some of us are glad the investigations and questions under oath are taking place. if the administration did nothing wrong, what do they have to hide by not testifying under oath? all i want is questions answered, if those questions lead to criminal charges so be it.. if not so be it as well...

here's hoping some type of transparency returns to government...


/sure i will be flamed for liberal or something

Washing your car is legal.

Washing your car to hide the blood from a hit-and-run is illegal.

Just because an act is legal under one law does not mean that act is not illegal under another law.

The prosecutors are at will employees, but if the intent of the firing was to obstruct justice, then the firing is still illegal.

/not Republican or Democrat, just for the record.

So why are you echoing Republican talking points?

Or are "separation of powers" and "show trials" just rolling off non-partisan tongues right now?

Most of the supposed 'cases involving corruption charges" were already settled with the lawmaker in question already serving time...

but it must be political, those 2 senators from NY are always on top of things
 
2007-03-28 02:19:12 PM
Here's the real issue. The president is 100% allowed to fire these people even for political reasons, up to but not including politically motivated obstruction.

But the Congress absolutely has the power to ensure that the DoJ is not used for partisan hackery. They have oversight and impeachment power over the political appointees of the DoJ. They have the right to find out how the operation is run and impeach Gonzalez if they don't like it. That it would be unprecedented, but so would the direct use of the DoJ as a partisan branch. Even Nixon's AG refused to stoop to that.

Manfred Richthofen: So exactly why are people arguing against the subpoena?

The biggest problem with the subpoenas is that if administration officials are compelled to testify under oath, then they face the possibility of perjury charges if they do not tell the truth. This, for reasons beknownst only to Republicans, is apparently a Very Bad Thing.
 
2007-03-28 02:20:21 PM

that's about all i can come up with.


I thought the arguement was subpeonas are witchhunts.

A manditory trap door with alligator pit is necessary to resolve this problem. Pinnochio gets to stand 1' in front of the "plunge button" during testimony.

This method was successfully tested before, but with the "hot teacher having sex with student" routine, where the "go free" buttons were set before the jury, about 5 inches above their laps.

The same buttons were used in the nipple thermometers.

This one is different from the others, but keep in mind that "spending too much time" can also mean "taking too long".

Because they've no more political capital left to spend? Credit card rates are a biatch.

kinda disregarding the school of fish under the boat, but...sure. if that eases your mind, have at it.

At this point he really only has three choices:

a) post the names of republicans being denied rights by the democrats
b) point to the post of where he listed the names
c) admit he made a strawman arguement

/i have faith he will answer d) none of the above.

Good analogy, but I'm afraid all he sees is:

Washing your car to hide the blood from a hit-and-run is illegal.

The prosecutors are at will employees, but if the intent of the firing was to obstruct justice, then the firing is still illegal.
