I'll listen later -I can't stay long, but one thing I thought weird was that the #2 guy in the Justice Dept resigns and immediately Gonzo says he (#2) spearheaded the attorneys firings! <br><br>Gee how convenient !! <br><br>what a lying SOB !!<br><br>for weeks he said he didn't know where the list originated !<br><br>I think it was CR that did it ! <br><br>we all know it takes lots to cover his FAT Azz !<br><br>David (OFI)
Sen. Specter says Justice Department is "dysfunctional" <br><br>Man he's being nice.... <br><br>I think the whole damm Bush Administration is dysfunctional !! <br><br>David (OFI)<br><br>P.S. I can see why Gonzo doesn't want to quit and Bush keeps defending him.<br>IF Gonzo quits or Bush replaces him, it has to go through the Dem Senate and we might end up with a REAL AG... not a phony puppet who's cluless.
Worth Reading if you can't view da' vid.!<br><br>Dom Dom Dom --> I made a copy as well <--<br>JiC this document 'goes missing' y<br><br>Good Job, BatMan!<br><br>I have a feeling seeing just how "Fredo" <br>stepped into the Leadership of one of the <br>MAIN Legs of Our Government even though<br>he's almost TOTALLY lacking in qualifications<br>is going to unfold into a bigger story than<br>the story they were after to begin with!<br><br>Curioser & Curioser <br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>

Rep. Davis pushes for no confidence vote on attorney general<br><br>Excerpt: [color:blue]Gonzales support eroded further this week with the revelation that as White House counsel in 2004, he went to the hospital bedside of then-Attorney General John Ashcroft and pressured him to certify the legality of Bush's controversial eavesdropping program while Ashcroft lay in intensive care.</font color=blue><br><br><br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)
I'd heard an interesting little tidbit that will have me pinning on my "IMPEACH BUSH" Pin again:<br><br>I'd heard that Once someone has been removed from office following an Impeachment Trial<br>that they are BARRED BY LAW from ever holding Public Office, or being in ANY "Position of Trust" <br>(including CEO of any corporation) for life.<br><br>Sorry.... but that suits me right down to the ground! <br><br>Frankly I'm tired of the BUSH CRONY RECYCLING SYSTEM (The Revolving Door 'Rewards' System)<br>where people are used like chess-pieces to do the PIN-HEAD'S Bidding (at his pleasure if you will)<br><br>Fer Kriseache! If we can't out & out shoot the bastards, at LEAST take them out of circulation! <br><br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>
I know I didn't hallucinate this story three years ago. I did wonder if I was hallucinating when we finally caught it on MSNBC a couple of days ago, like it was some freakin' revelation. <br><br>Oh, wait. 2004. The press was still in Spineless Clueless Dickless mode. The disconnect on this "Ashcroft Brutalized in ICU" and "Oh, Right, It Happened Three Years Ago But We Just Didn't Report It" is a story all by itself. <br><br>Well, that and the rarely shocking news that Rio Grande Valley is not only very beautiful but also very hot this time of year. <br><br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]Just push play ~ They're gonna bleep it anyway ~ </font color=blue><br><br>
_________________________ I always deserve it. Really.
In reading through Pg 2 of the transcript<br><br>I'm struck more with what WASN'T Said than what WAS said:<br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p><br>SCHUMER: OK. OK.<br><br>And the conversations, the issue, whatever it was, was not resolved.<br><br>COMEY: Correct. We communicated about it. I communicated again the Department of Justice's view on the matter. And that was it.<br><br>SCHUMER: Right.<br><br>And you stated that the next day, Thursday, was the deadline for reauthorization of the program, is that right?<br><br>COMEY: Yes, sir.<br><br>SCHUMER: OK.<br><br>Can you tell us what happened the next day?<br><br>COMEY: The program was reauthorized without us and without a signature from the Department of Justice attesting as to its legality. [color:red]And I prepared a letter of resignation, intending to resign the next day,</font color=red> Friday, March the 12th.<br><br>SCHUMER: OK.<br><br>[color:red]And that was the day, as I understand it, of the Madrid train bombings.</font color=red><br><br>COMEY: Thursday, March 11th, was the morning of the Madrid train bombings.<br><br>SCHUMER: And so, obviously, people were very concerned with all of that.<br><br>COMEY: Yes. It was a very busy day in the counterterrorism aspect.<br><br>SCHUMER: Yet, even in light of that, you still felt so strongly that you drafted a letter of resignation.<br><br>COMEY: Yes.<br><br>SCHUMER: OK.<br><br>[color:red]And why did you decide to resign?</font color=red><br><br>COMEY: I just believed...<br><br>SCHUMER: Or to offer your resignation, is a better way to put it?<br><br>COMEY: I believed that I couldn't -- I couldn't stay, [color:red]if the administration was going to engage in conduct that the Department of Justice had said had no legal basis. I just simply couldn't stay.</font color=red><br><br>SCHUMER: Right. OK.<br><br>Now, let me just ask you this. And this obviously is all troubling.<br><br>As I understand it, you believed that others were also prepared to resign, not just you, is that correct?<br><br>COMEY: Yes.<br><br>SCHUMER: OK.<br><br>[color:red]Was one of those (FBI)Director Mueller?</font color=red><br><br>COMEY: I believe so. You'd have to ask him, but I believe so.<br><br>SCHUMER: You had conversations with him about it.<br><br>COMEY: Yes.<br><br>SCHUMER: OK.<br><br>How about the associate attorney general, Robert McCallum?<br><br>COMEY: I don't know. We didn't discuss it.<br><br>SCHUMER: How about your chief of staff?<br><br>COMEY: Yes. He was certainly going to go when I went.<br><br>SCHUMER: Right.<br><br>[color:red]How about Mr. Ashcroft's chief of staff?</font color=red><br><br>[color:red]COMEY: My understanding was that he would go as well.</font color=red><br><br>SCHUMER: And how...<br><br>COMEY: I should say...<br><br>SCHUMER: Please.<br><br>COMEY: ... to make sure I'm accurate, I...<br><br>SCHUMER: This is your surmise, not...<br><br>COMEY: Yes.<br><br>[color:red]I ended up agreeing -- Mr. Ashcroft's chief of staff asked me something that meant a great deal to him, and that is that I not resign until Mr. Ashcroft was well enough to resign with me. He was very concerned that Mr. Ashcroft was not well enough to understand fully what was going on. And he begged me to wait until -- this was Thursday that I was making this decision -- to wait til Monday to give him the weekend to get oriented enough so that I wouldn't leave him behind, was his concern.</font color=red><br><br>SCHUMER: And it was his view that Mr. Ashcroft was likely to resign as well?<br><br>COMEY: Yes.<br><br>SCHUMER: So what did you do when you heard that?<br><br>COMEY: I agreed to wait. I said that what I would do is -- that Friday would be last day. And Monday morning I would resign.<br><br>SCHUMER: OK.<br><br>Anything else of significance relevant to this line of questioning occur on Thursday the 11th, that you can recall?<br><br>COMEY: No, not that I recall.<br><p><hr></blockquote><p> <br><br>QUESTION:<br>WHat the hell could have been said (yet cannout be discussed) to cause not only this Deputy Attorney General, <br>to resign in the face of the countried greatest need (another terrorist attack) and not only Attorney General<br>John Ashcroft.... but ALSO the DIRECTOR of the FBI to also resign....<br><br>...clearing the way for the TORTURE TSAR to take over the Entire Judicial Branch of these United States<br>and be so heavily cloaked in secrecy that no one dared come forth even in the face of all that's transpired<br>over the past 3 years. <br><br>[color:red]OOOOPS! Until NOW!</font color=red> <br><br>This should be very interesting INDEED! <br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>
