Think Progress reported this afternoon that White House spokesperson Dana Perino told reporters Friday during a press conference that the White House could possibly stop McClellan from testifying before Congress:
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

The President is not above the law. Nor can he silence the People by his will alone. The Constitution makes no mention of 'executive privilege'. Can anyone cite exactly what 'law' Perino is referring to?
...executive privilege can only be invoked by the person that is to testify, not some blanket "don't rat on us" thing. Just like if you plead the 5th. You can't do it if you yourself aren't in any jeopordy of self incrimination. You cant plead the 5th to save a friend if you are innocent of any wrong doing. (....look up Dave Chappell on youtube for his skit on pleading the 5th...we watched that in our Criminal Procedure class and it is funny as hell)

Rumsfeld? What these people have done to our Country and our reputation is beyond just a slap on the wrist, they are self serving treasonists.
Mybigunit, the Mafia learned from the best. Our government is the ultimate Mafia. They didn't rub out Spiegelman they just destroyed his life. That is power.
I'm old enough to remember how I use to fear the Kremlin...wow, how foolish was I? These old cold war bastards (Rumsfeld/Cheney) they are the real deal. They want a new world order. Listen to what Mcclellon had to say about democracy by force. (his book is a must read)
....So, yes Ian, you do want to see all the guilty people go down and that is a long list of names....and alot of them have tried to hide in some cave like Al Qaueda but justice will find them and hunt them down too. (Don't leave the Country Cheney or Rove!)
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
