Senators: Cheney Should Be Investigated in Leak Case

@ 11:01 PM (107 months, 26 days ago)

Some United States Senators, Republican and Democrat alike, are saying that Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald should investigate Dick Cheney and other senior White House officials if they authorized former Cheney Chief of Staff Scooter Libby to leak classified information.

Republicans like George Allen (R-VA) are being forced to realize what many of us in the reality based community have known for a long time: the Bush Administration is a criminal one.

Sen. Allen said a full investigation in warranted, and that "I don't think anybody should be releasing classified information, period, whether in the Congress, executive branch or some underling in some bureaucracy."

Last week, released court documents revealed that Libby told the Grand Jury in the CIA leak case, that Dick Cheney and other "superiors" in the White House authorized him to disclose classified material, including a National Intelligence Estimate.

  1. They might have to wait - I think Dick Cheney may be facing charges for attempted homicide :lol:

  2. Speaking of that, it's amazing to me how the media is trying to spin the story (probably at the WH's direction). They keep trying to say that the gentleman shot by Cheney is doing ok, yet he is in ICU.

    I don't think that someone in ICU is doing ok!

  3. Well, he is 78 and a little shotgun pellet goes a long way. I think the White House and media are just responding to pressure from the gun licensing crowd. You know people have been calling for an upper age limit on those sport weapons for a while now.

  4. And I, for one, believe that people are correct and justified in calling for certain requirements when it comes to purchasing weapons.

    If someone wants to legitimately purchase a weapon for the purposes of hunting, they should have no problem undergoing a waiting period so that a thorough background check can be conducted, etc.

  5. I agree. Perhaps, waiting periods for a license to drive through Chappaquiddick would be useful, too.

    I hear that's an especially dangerous part of the country.

    Wonder if Dick Cheney called his lawyer first or the ambulance?
