  •  VP would probably be acquitted (0+ / 0-)

    I support prosecution for bush Cheney rumsfeld et am but legally Cheney is not in the civilian or military chain of command as VP.

    He is the only one who can make a good argument for acquittal.

    •  Cheney was knee deep in torture and waterboarding (1+ / 0-)

      he'd be convicted for his part in that, since his office played a big role in getting the use of of waterboarding accepted and used widely. the crimes of the administration were so extensive, you could nail them  on pretty much anything. Remembers Cheneys talk of the "Fourth Branch"?
