Bush on Shaky Legal Ground With Spy Program

@ 11:45 PM (104 months, 6 days ago)

Two attorneys within the Congressional Research Service's Legislative Law Division have concluded that Idiot Son is on very shaky legal ground when it comes to his domestic spy program.

Elizabeth Bazan and Jennifer Elsea wrote in a memorandum that the Department of Justice's justification for the program (which they laid out in a Dec. 22 analysis for both the House and Senate intelligence committees) "does not seem to be as well-grounded as the tenor of that letter suggests." 

They also concluded that the activity by the National Security Agency "may present an exercise of presidential power at its lowest ebb."
