SUBMIT THIS ACTION FORM TO YOUR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS & YOUR LOCAL PAPER:
The White House has ordered the Justice Department not to prosecute contempt charges against any of its operatives who it had also ordered not to testify in the first place.
Gonzales who HAS testified has told so many different stories that were he not himself the attorney general he would be facing perjury charges right now.
Tell Congress It's Time To Impeach Gonzales
But of course even if he were convicted he would instantly be commuted or pardoned as was Scooter Libby. There is one and only one constitutional recourse left and that is impeachment. The appeal courts have already been stacked with right wing judges and they will not intervene. The solicitor general will not appoint a special counsel. Only through impeachment can Congress demand a return to integrity.
On Tuesday, July 31st, Jay Inslee proposed that the Judiciary Committee pursue the possible impeachment of Alberto Gonzales, who tried to browbeat a semi-conscious John Ashcroft into signing off on a patently illegal spying program, who was the point man in doing a legal end run around the laws against torture, who let the White House dictate which U.S. attorneys were not sufficiently partisan in their prosecutions, and who then lied repeatedly under oath about it all.
