Skip to comments.Wexler: McClellan's Testimony Justifies Cheney's Impeachment
Posted on 06/21/2008 3:14:08 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.), one of the most vocal opponents of the Bush administration on Capitol Hill, said Scott McClellan's book and testimony justify the beginning of impeachment hearings against Vice President Dick Cheney.
During questioning of McClellan, Wexler asked the former White House press secretary if he believed Bush authorized the leaking of Valerie Plame Wilson's name. When McClellan said no, Wexler said this meant that Cheney must have been the source of the leak, meaning Cheney was seeking to retaliate against the wife of an administration critic. In Wexler's view, this would be enough to support the initation of impeachment hearings against Cheney immediately.
Wexler also suggested that Congress should use its authority under the inherent contempt statute to arrest Andrew Card and Karl Rove if they don't respond to Judiciary Committee subpoenas.
"We have the power of inherent contempt, and need be, we should use it," Wexler thundered.
McClellan had nothing.
Wexler looked and sounded insane.
And this isn’t the first time...
Shhhhh...you mustn’t SAY that.
I know it’s true, but it’s not the point they’re trying to make.
Ah my friend you are dealing with liberals and the Dims
this is all what is wrote in their liberal handbook
never let the facts get in the way of a good story or blatant lie for if we say it a lot of times then the people will just believe us.
We have the media on our side especially Barack Obama so not to worry, people are thick and they will conform
Hence the bumper sticker slogans, you know war for oil., bush lied and people died , Clinton lied no one died(though at the time they said he never lied and many thousands did die but they were mostly christians not muslims so to lib it doesn’t matter) etc etc etc
“Facts” mean nothing to Wexler ...
Wexler wants the Dem Congress to ARREST Rove and Card.
Literally take them into custody and incarcerate them.
How that would actually work I don’t have the imagination to figure out.
But if that doesn’t give you an idea who and what you’re dealing with here, nothing will.
So stating the facts gets you nowhere with these dangerous clowns...
Wexler thundered- more like screamed like a psycho! Great,
Scotty, your new friends are Wexler and Lee- you fat little
Dear Congressman Wexler:
Impeaching Dick Cheney won’t put a single drop of gasoline in anyone’s gas tank.
So stop jerking the American people around by wasting time and money on nonsense!
I think the funding for such wastes of the people’s finances should start coming out of your and your cohort’s overbloated salaries. If you want to play politics, let it come out of your pocket...
Another Florida idiot who was voted by those who left the north east and have moved to this great state and are now turning this state into what they left.
Every election they can’t even get their elections sorted out nor can they even put a mark on who they want
make sense, nope but they are democrats who cannot think for themselves Thank goodness I live in northern Florida away from them
I see he mentions how he is against drilling for oil and is using the same argument the Dems made 20 and 30 years ago the very same argument which got us in this mess
I’ve just sent him a e-mail saying the near same thing
told him I was a Florida resident as I am though not in his district thankfully
Anyone else get a chance then please feel free
Same with Colorado.
What an idiot.
Wexler: "Mr. McClellan, do you believe that Bush executed Tsar Nicholas in 1917?"
McClellan: "No, sir, I do not."
Wexler: "Ah HA! This means that Cheney must have executed him!"
It has been. Definitively and legally, yet you would not know so from the paucity of coverage by the MSM.
In addition, the RATS need to keep the fiction alive that it was Bush/Chenney that leaked Plame's name for political expediency.
Armitage is just another back-stabbing, career bureaucrat, slimy RINO who should have gotten the boot a long time ago.
Your post illustrates why, in my post above, I said “McClellan had nothing. Wexler looked and sounded insane”.
And Wexler.."Do you believe..." Is/Was Wexler an attorney or was he an exterminatior before entering politics?
When you have some time Wex, call me and I'll tell you what I beleive. So sad.
Let me start the call early...
Many of them are lawyers.
Wexler had plenty of company up there.
It doesn’t matter their backgrounds...they KNOW Armitage was the leaker.
They don’t care.
They want the stupid masses to BELIEVE it was Bush and Cheney.
