Subpoena Time for Gonzales

Posted on Apr 10, 2007

The AP is reporting that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has been subpoenaed by the House Judiciary Committee, requiring him to turn over documents detailing the recent firings of several U.S. attorneys.

The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed new documents Tuesday from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as part of its investigation into the firings of federal prosecutors, with the panel’s chairman saying he had run out of patience.

“We have been patient in allowing the department to work through its concerns regarding the sensitive nature of some of these materials,” Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., wrote Gonzales in a letter accompanying the subpoena. “Unfortunately, the department has not indicated any meaningful willingness to find a way to meet our legitimate needs.

“At this point, further delay in receiving these materials will not serve any constructive purpose,” Conyers said.

(Truthdig Guest) “Nobody in the Bush Administration has ever told the truth…”

******** you can say that again - and while your at it, everyone please, ask yourselves this: Is it possible for any intelligent person to accept that they’ve lied about everything “except” 911? Then ask this: Why isn’t 911 the spearhead issue in the Peace Coalition’s agenda? Common, folks, the die hard supporters of the regime and the MSM are already calling us all traitors. Why not hit them with the biggest lie of all, with treason at its very heart, and throw it right back at them. Disconnect 911 from the 3rd Rail to which the media has attached it and dismantle the myth, which the regime cites for everything it does. Embrace 911 truth. It is the issue that can break open serious investigations and bring them down.

Nobody in the Bush Adminstration has ever told the truth. Starting with the stolen election of 2000. They will lie ans staal until Bush leaves office. Only then will the truth be told.

We can maybe get the truth if some of the tactics that were approved by him are applied to him such as waterboard treatment. “THE TRUTH WILL OUT

***Hear, hear!!! — I’ve long recommended a little up-close-and-personal tour of Abu Grahib for this lot. Can you say, “Bring it on?” Maybe “Bend and spread ‘em” is more to the point.

Jail terms are excessive in the US but I doubt that Gonzo will do time.  If he does go to jail I would like to see him do 15 to 20 years in solitary so he could find himself. You know, expand his inner being.  Get in touch with the souls of the 152 people he and W put to death in Texas.

Stalling is a TACTIC of this administration, invariably to hide or cover over the truth or to proceed unhindered with a plan that will have already created such havoc by the time it IS discovered that its effects are catastrophic, such as the war.  I’m happy to see their “patience” has worn thin, but really, does it not seem INCREDIBLE that anyone would exercise “patience” with an administration such as THIS!
