Comey Testimony — Do you know about it?

Have any of you heard about the testimony of former deputy attorney general James Comey?

The testimony where he revealed (here’s a direct transcript) that Alberto Gonzales (then the White House Counsel) and White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card tried to get the drugged and hospitalized Attorney General, John Ashcroft, to authorize the warrantless wiretapping program in March 2004—after Comey, as acting attorney general and following Ashcroft’s instructions, denied the authorization because of the program’s illegality….

The testimoney revealed that the President himself had called and ordered Card and Gonzales to go see Ashcroft in the hospital, and that Comey raced to the hospital to prevent them from getting the disoriented Ashcroft to overrule him….and that it was only the presence of armed FBI agents with orders from FBI Director Mueller to make sure that Card and Gonzales didn’t meet with Ashcroft alone that prevented them from getting what they wanted.

Jesus fucking Christ.

NBC is the only major broadcast media outlet that has covered this story — everybody else is talking about the Republican debate, Falwell’s death, etc.

We have DIRECT TESTIMONY that Bush ordered his men to get authorization of a program that they’d already been told was illegal. That means that it was a known felony. Bush directly involved, knowingly committing a crime.

At what point does Impeachment actually get put on the table? Not to mention that this means that Gonzales committed perjury when he testified that there was “no strong Justice Department objections” to the eavesdropping program.

As usual, Comedy Central is offering better coverage than most media outlets:

For chrissakes people…

  1. “Do these guys have to sodomize the Declaration of Independence in front of you!”

    Apparently so, and perhaps not even then…

  2. At least it’s being told in the print media.

    Are they talking about the Senete resolution of no confidence in Gonzales on the TV? It’s all over the NYT.

  3. Perhaps, if Bush and crew have not brought upon us the End of Days they so want to bring forth, history books will look back at this and talk about what an awful big mess the shrub has gotten us all in to.

    By the by, have you seen the Fascist America in 10 Easy Steps article? If not, I think you will appreciate it. :)

  4. I would say OMFG, but I am not surprised.

    On the other hand, maybe this is what we need to finally uproot the Neocons and stop their plans for tyranny.

  5. Sorry, you have to get a blowjob to get impeached in this country. Premeditated felonies by the Executive branch are not enough threat to the U.S. Constitution and the public good to warrant prosecution.
