John Dean just said he would "be surprised if Cheney were not involved"
Edited on Wed Oct-19-05 12:35 AM by Gloria
He's on with Mike Webb, KIRO Seattle.

Now discussing the "Conspiracy Statute"--it's so broad, "it doesn't take much....." It's got what most people in Watergate.....those aware, not even directly involved.

It's even a crime if you don't do your job--"defrauding the govt"

John Ashcroft used the "leaker" provisions, so it may come back to haunt them.

Judge Hogan was Dean's classmate and is a friend....his opinion that was bolstered by 3 judges, 2 very conservative, that sent Miller to jail...that's a clue that something very big is brewing...

3. that's true.........
it only takes 2 (or more) people working together to achieve the same goal to prove conspiracy!!

And usually with a conspiracy, there is also a cover up, which can have bigger implications than the original crime.........

4. If Cheney stepped down, ....Cheney isn't going to lightly resign...
Can be indicted, although it's never been tested other than Aaron Burr.

Would be a golden opportunity in terms of a VP pick, but it's both the House and Senate that has a confirmation role. No problem in the House, but could be a filibuster in the Senate.

If he didn't resign, he could preside over his own trial!!
