Legal memo to the Democrats
Washington Times ^ | 12/04/03 | Jonathan M. Stein

Recently, several memos drafted by Senate Democrats have been leaked to the press. One memo, from the Intelligence Committee, exposes a Democrat plan to use the awesome power and resources of that committee as a political weapon against the president. The other memos detail how powerful left-wing lobbyists pressured Democrats to impermissibly oppose judicial nominations based on race and gender. Now the Democrats are outraged because they got caught. Senate Democrats have demanded a probe into these leaks; their request has been granted by detrimentally congenial Republicans. The investigation notwithstanding, if the leakers are dismissed, they may have actionable claims against the government.

Instead of acceding to the Democrats' deceitful game of investigating the cops for catching the robbers, the Senate should be investigating the Democrats for abuse of public office.

Yes. Why aren't they?
What's in the momos trumps the leakers as far as American lives are concerned.
In my opinion, this issue is far more important than Koby Briant or Michael Jackson! I don't understand why the press, at least the good ones, are not onto this story.

Sounds like the right thing to do, A Public hearing would be good!

Disgusting. Can we call Republican spinelessness regarding vote fraud and fainting when Democrat's crook their pinky fingers, odd to say the least? How about down right suspecious?

I was going to donate $1000 to the RNC after the fillibuster started. The passing of the new welfare medical bill and now this gives me ample reason not to give a cent.

Call them and tell them that; maybe you should tell them that you'll change your mind if they bring these Dems to justice.

I have a feeling that this is huge in DC. I also think that most of the major media is misreporting this story in hopes that it will go away forever, and pass under the radar of awareness in flyover country.

This is a great post, I'm so glad to see it! So far, it hasn't gone away, wonder what the dims are gonna do? So far, they're all keeping a very low profile on it, and proceeding with business as usual.

It might be time for another email campaign...
