Bush aides will review leak notes (Dallas News)

WASHINGTON White House lawyers will review phone logs and other records supplied by presidential aides before turning the documents over to the Justice Department officials conducting the investigation into who leaked a CIA undercover operative's identity, officials said Monday.

....

Administration officials said the White House counsel's office may need up to two weeks to organize documents that some 2,000 employees are required to submit by 5 p.m. Tuesday.

....

White House spokeswoman Ashley Snee said she could not put a timeline on when the documents might be turned over to the Justice Department but said the review would be expeditious.

6. If you haven't done so already
Sign the petition and PASS IT ON!

From moveon.org:

Investigate The White House

According to the Washington Post, "two top White House officials" committed a high crime in the first weeks of July. They handed over the identity of an American secret agent to journalists. Republicans contend that an investigation by the Justice Department will reveal any wrongdoing. But Justice Department chief John Ashcroft -- who was appointed by President Bush and who employed key Bush advisor Karl Rove -- is hardly neutral. If we don't speak up now, the investigation could be left in John Ashcroft's hands, and the perpetrators and the crime could be swept under the rug.

Go here to sign the petition:

4. We need to fight this.
We can't let Bush win where Nixon (a better bastard in every sense of the word) lost.

5. When they went through Hillary's underwear drawers, did she
have a chance to "organize" them first? I think not. This reeks.

8. I'll use an old Republican line
If they didn't do anything WRONG, then why do they need attorneys?
More taxpayer fraud.

9. This becomes more of a joke everyday
The "review" would be expedious. If Asscroft was capable of the job he would have the documents turned over IMMEDIATELY.

INDEPENDENT COUSEL NOW!

10. Does that not equate to foxes reviewing the hen house?

I was only in junior high school at the time--okay, okay, I was in college--but I remember Nixon doing something along these lines, too...
