62. Ogletree to Specter: *"I think not only can you, I think you must." *
Edited on Mon Jul-24-06 03:56 PM by chill_wind
"But Charles Ogletree, a Harvard Law School professor who is a member of the aba task force, gave different advice. "So you think we could draft a statute, take the president to court?" Specter asked him. "I think not only can you, I think you must," Ogletree replied."

OF COURSE we can expect Sen Stonewall Specter not to want to do this. The sense is that he is asking only just how much of a legal corner is he finally finding himelf in.

In related editorial piece and discussion on the ABA task force here:

Then the question becomes, what remedy do we have against Sen Specter if he continues to subvert and fails to act on the pronouncements by this legal body?

And what about the rest of the lawyers in Congress? They cannot hide or feign any further serious confusion about what is being said by the ABA task force about this matter.

What are the options of The People of the United States and our own legal bodies to force or penalize specifically assigned and responsible judiciary members in Congress to act? impeach? recall? sue?

Can the ABA disbar them? Anything? Anybody??
