Bush Admin May Have Violated 26 Statutes, Dems Say

The Bush administration may have broken over two dozen federal laws and regulations -- some of them multiple times -- according to an unreleased report from the House Judiciary Committee Democrats.

"The misconduct I have found is not only serious, but widespread," reads a draft summary of the report by Ranking Member John Conyers (D-MI):

The laws implicated by the Administration’s actions include federal laws against making false statements to congress [sic]; federal laws and international treaties prohibiting torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment; federal laws concerning retaliating against witnesses and other government employees; Executive Orders concerning leaking and other misuse of intelligence; federal regulations and ethical requirements governing conflicts of interest; the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act; communications privacy laws; the National Security Act; and the Fourth Amendment.

The document, an update to the Democrats' December 2005 report, "A Constitution in Crisis," will be released later this week, according to knowledgeable sources. It is several hundred pages long, with over a thousand footnotes.


Can you hear the drum beat????

I can heard the drum beat but can you heard the opinion control team getting ready to make it as lame to the oblivious Americans as much as they can . . .

Right now i have about as much respect for Dems as i do for Repubs,

They wait alllllllll this time, then when the @#$% is about to hit the fan, they come out with this stuff. Too little too late. They are aiding Bush and his cronies in whatever he (Bush) has planned- Bush broke many statutes long ago.
Too little too late.

To me the waiting and anticipation of what these criminals are capable of is more punishment than what they're going to do. I dont like waiting. Bush is going to get his way no matter what, so gosh darn it....DO IT!

I'm ready. Be done with us, and soon. We all know that's what they want.
The Dems are nothing now but sub-puppets anyhow.

This all makes me siiiiiiiiick!!!

Good point. Makes you wonder if he had stopped at statutory violation number 25, whether the DEMS would have said anything at all....

I wonder why #26 pushed them over the edge?
