The Libby Trial is in (Guilty) and given there is a pale of suspicion over the WH, when are we seeing another special prosecutor appointed, or for that matter FORMAL impeachment hearings?

The Libby case was the tip of an iceberg of corruption, abuse of power, et al. It is time... the US House starts FORMAL impeachment hearings. This is why we elected you to do, in many ways... bring accountability to a white House that is working in ways that make Watergate look like boy scouts. And we both know what the grocery lists of charges were there against President Nixon... some of them apply to our current leaders... starting with the dismissal of what is it now? Eight Federal Prosecutors?



And to the senate

Senator Boxer

I know that the House has to start the formal impeachment proceedings, yet I also know that in 1973, when it was clear serious crimes were committed, the Senate formed the Special Impeachment Committee.

Today's verdict in the Scooter Libby Trial reminds us just how much we need such a committee right now. I realize the political stakes, but as a nation we are in the midst of a constitutional crisis... and it is time that our elected representatives, whether they are in the House or the Senate, realize that we the American people are quickly loosing patience with BOTH parties and what seems to be a business as usual attitude

And this incoming from somebody who does watch the SPAN and knows just how many hearings have held so far. Imagine what people who only watch the nightly "news" think... (I should call them what they are, the nightly big brother, minute of hate events)

There is much to do in this country, but bringing accountability to the Executive and making sure future executives know there are consequences for actions such as these, is critical... if the Republic is to survive.

Then again, we might as well have crossed the Rubicon in 2000 and we are just spinning our wheels... what is it? the people wait, but patience is running low.
