NSA Wiretaps Will Destroy Bush Administration

Even Sheriff Taylor Knows That Warrantless Wiretapping Is Wrong

The warrantless wiretapping scandal will be the most likely avenue for the undoing of the Bush administration. Regardless of all the other scandals, I believe this is the one that will lead to his impeachment and removal from office. The manner in which he attempted to use legal counsel to find a way around the law or get the Justice Department to sign off on its legality even though questionable, and persistence in continuing the practice past THAT point…proves to us all, without a doubt…that Bush broke the law. He should be impeached. End of story.

Bush, Senate Head for Showdown on Wiretapping

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush headed toward a showdown with the Senate over his domestic spying program on Thursday after lawmakers approved subpoenas for documents the White House declared off-limits.

“The information the committee is requesting is highly classified and not information we can make available,” White House spokesman Tony Fratto said in signaling a possible court fight.

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the subpoenas in a 13-3 vote following 18 months of futile efforts to obtain documents related to Bush’s contested justification for warrantless surveillance begun after the September 11 attacks.

Three Republicans joined 10 Democrats in voting to authorize the subpoenas, which may be issued within days.

“We are asking not for intimate operational details but for the legal justifications,” said Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy, a Vermont Democrat. “We have been in the dark too long.”
