Is it time to revive the independent counsel?
Would it pay to start an investigation during an election year? Will Bush be the second lame duck POTUS to face impeachment?

What happens legally if he defeated in the election in regards to a full blown investigation?

1. Good luck
The pResident didn't renew the executive order (or whatever it is) that allowed an independant counsel provision to exist... so there is no such thing currently.

3. I don't understand the original logic?
The Executive branch created a position to investigate itself? I thought it was somehow concieved in the acrymonious aftermath of Watergate.

4. I don't either but each Pres has to renew it
Or it has to be renewed every so many years (not sure)
In any case bushie boy didn't renew the act so currently there is no such thing!

2. The crimes were & still are being committed.
There needs to be federal prison time in the future of several dozen in this Administration.
