  •  OK..Awesome I want to believe...more (none)
    tell me more of what you see coming down. Who else..I believe Cheney will be indicted. Along with Rove, Libby..who else?  What will happen to Bush if he is an unindicted co-conspirator? Can he be impeached next year if Dems take back Senate?

    •  He can be impeached if we take back the (none)
      House, if he is named as an unindicted co-conspirator, although the CIA deaths if true, might force the REPUBLICAN house to indict him (unlikely).  The Dems then need to take a lot more of the Senate to convict Bush--it's a 2/3 vote, not half the Senate.  Although Bush might be a big liability to the GOP next year and he would then resign a la Nixon.

      There would never be a trial, as with Clinton, as Bush is guilty of a true "high crime".  He would lose the trial and he would know that ahead of time.

      John Dean thinks the President might have already pleaded the Fifth! (see diary)

      •  I understood that neither Bush nor Cheney (none)
        testified under oath. It follows, then, that they could not be compelled to answer a question, and if so, they would not ever have need to invoke the Fifth Amendment.
      •  he hasn't testified (none)
        as far as anyone knows (and i think that would have leaked by now).

        However, i agree with Dean's surmise that he'd plead the fifth if he was compelled to testify. That's what he was saying last year in his article, not that Junior had already. And we all know how that would be spun. The talking points would be all ¡Seperation of Powers! and ¡Rogue Prosecutor!. They be making out Junior to be taking some brave stand against the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.
