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.
Isn’t Colorado getting all the left wing loons moving from CA, as that is what I was told off a friend of mine?
It’s is infuriating that they make a mess of their northeastern states and when they enough they move to another state only to vote the way they did thus making it look like their old state.
stupidity at it’s highest, I went on a website called city data.com ( a relocation site)and was telling people that they are more than welcome if they want to move here but we like how we live , low taxes, speak English here anyway, castle law, 2nd amendment is observed, basically a slower way of life and conservative view especially on family and do not change it to the state you left. There is a reason why you left, remember
I was banned off it
seems liberals just don’t like the truth
Though it is amusing when you confront these people and ask them about how do they like living here, no traffic, low taxes etc etc etc, they say great and it’s only until you say well remember this is a republican place and that is why you must like it and it was the DEms who ruined your old place.
They just look dumbfounded but you go on your way with a cheery smile and leave them to their confusion
(”If a President of the United States ever lied to the American people he should resign.” Bill Clinton in 1974)
Wexler’s own official bio includes this:
He has a B.A. in Political Science from the U of FL, and ***a law degree from George Washington U.***.
Law degree from George Washington U.
come one the Dems never go by what they say
just a few years ago they said every vote counts and yet when the massed vote to have marriage between a man and a woman they ignore it, even in MA they didn’t even let the people there vote on the issue they banned on and refused to have it on the ballot
so yep if a Dem ever went by his word I would be very surprised
Congressman Wexler has been under strain from the long war on terror and many late online hours of Internet ‘games of skill’.
Upon conclusion of the testimonies, Wexler could be heard mumbling to himself as he exited the chambers, “Ah, but the strawberries! That’s, that’s where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes, but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt, and with, with geometric logic, that, that a duplicate key to the Congressional icebox did exist. And I would have produced that key if they hadn’t pulled the Vice President and Karl Rove’s weather machine out of action. I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow Republican.....
Literally take them into custody and incarcerate them.
Anything they can do to try to get the spotlight off of the fact that since the dems took office, gasoline prices, and now food, and soon the prices of everything else, have begun to rise at a staggering rate.
The media hasn't begun to report the cost of this coming winters fuel prices: Heating oil will be skyrocketing. Natural gas prices will probably be up at least 20%, probably more. And electricity? Well, remember that the majority of electricity in the US is powered by coal fired plants... Ever wonder how the coal gets to those plants? Trains powered by diesel, which is around $5 a gallon these days.
Wexler knows that if the public were to realize what the dems have been doing all these years, and what their future plans are, that his days would be numbered in congress, and he'd have an appointment at the Tar and Feather day spa.
I nominate Wexler as the craziest man in Congress...and is that ever saying a lot.
It is all nonsense.
Wexlar is off his meds again.....someone needs to call the men in their little white coats to go retrieve him.
Queeg had it right......clink clink clink...
“We have the power of inherent contempt, and need be, we should use it,” Wexler thundered.
Hey stupid, don’t you realize that 88% of America holds you in contempt.
Can anyone tell me how I (we) can bill Congres for high oil prices, high food prices, taking money under false pretenses and impersonating a Congressman/Senator?
dims never let some little something like ‘facts’ get in the way of what they want to do.
Dear Moonbat Congressman Wexler, kindly point out the "power of inherent contempt" outlined in the Constitution.
My copy seems to have not published that particular section. I'm sure it's there between the lines somewhere
Bring it Onnnn!
Putting aside Wexler’s insane rant, does this man need a hearing aid? Every time I see the guy on TV , he is screaming at the microphone rather than talking.
Wasn’t it Wexler who started the whole “butterfly ballot” debacle? He said constituents were calling him, distraught over the fact that they “thought” they had accidently voted for Buchanan because of the placement of the candidates’ names.
You’d think most representatives would be loathe to claim that their constituents were a bunch of morons who couldn’t properly read a name, then punch a hole beside that name, but Wexler proudly championed that fact for political advantage.
It's the seriousness of the CHARGE that matters.
True,sad but true.
Earning a law degree doesn't make you a lawyer, passing the bar exam does. The fact that his bio states that he earned the degree, and doesn't mention that he is a lawyer, usually means that he flunked the bar exam. Running for congress, flipping burgers, and shoveling manure are all good careers for students that flunk the bar exam.
Wexler is going to give himself an aneurysm.
And this isnt the first time...
I was wondering when this loud mouthed cock-a-roach was going to crawl out of the woodwork again.
I don’t doubt that he didn’t pass the bar exam. If he even tried to pass it, and I don’t know if he cared one way or the other enough to take it. His aim was always to get where he is in politics, and his lack of passing the bar never stopped him.
If I gave the impression I was saying he has a license to practice law, I didn’t intend to.
I was posting what I found out about his background from his own official bio, as it might relate to what he knows or doesn’t about the law.
But in the end, I pointed out that these people don’t care what is true or what is legal, no matter what their backgrounds.
They are trying to fool the public.
went to “citydata.com” and didn’t find much, just a site for advertising. delete.
I happened to catch a few minutes of this dog and pony show on C-SPAN. One of the panel members (I think it was Rep. Steve King) read a CIA report which proved that Joe Wilson was a liar regarding his claims about the famous 16 words. How Wexler or anyone else could continue this charade is beyond me.
I am ashamed to say that this slimy toad Wexler is my congresscritter. My neighbors from The Upper East Side keep sending this waste-of-sperm back to congress. Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, after all, constitute the sixth borough of New York.
Wexler is a moonbat. I would love to see Cheney rip him a apart verbally during an investigation. I think Cheney could make Wexler cry on national television.
If Scott thinks he has made new ‘friends’ of the liberals, he is sadly mistaken, they have the same contempt for him as they do for Lieberman.
McClellan is a rat, and a rat is trusted by no one.
