Wexler: Let's put McClellan under oath

Rep. Robert Wexler, the Boca Dem who has called for impeachment hearings against vice president Dick Cheney, is calling for former White House Press Secretary (and new author) Scott McClellan to appear before the House Judiciary Committee to testify about the "the devastating revelations" he makes in his new book.

McClellan's new book, "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception" is kicking up a storm and a counterattack by the Bush administration on his charges that the administration misled the American people into war against Iraq.

"The admissions made by Scott McClellan in his new book are earth-shattering and allege facts to establish that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby – and possibly Vice President Cheney -  conspired to obstruct justice by lying about their role in the Plame Wilson matter and that the Bush Administration deliberately lied to the American people in order to take us to war in Iraq," said Wexler, a member of the judiciary committee.

McClellan, Wexler said, "must now appear before the House Judiciary Committee under oath to tell Congress and the American people how President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and White House officials deliberately orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to sell the war in Iraq to the American people."

Wexler voted to prosecute the war. He protests too much. Wexler is just as guilty as Bush. He needs an excuse for his stupid support of the war.Give it up Wexler...you are guilty!

Wexler needs to switch to decaf. He is too manic to be taken seriously, except by the tinfoil hat crowd.
McClellan doesn't offer any new evidence to support Wexler's conspiracy theories about the war or Valerie Plame. McClellan only repeats the same lame criticisms of the Bush administration.

All I Ask

For those passing through here who haven't checked out Wexler's web page where Americans are given an opportunity to let Congress know they, too, want Cheney impeachment hearings:

www.WexlerWantsHearings.com

There are actually some Republicans and people with a reputation for being conservative who would like hearings because they believe Cheney would be proven to have committed no impeachable offense. They want to get that on the record and move on.

Hearings don't necessarily mean impeachment and impeachment doesn't mean removal from office. Clinton was impeached, not removed, and made a hundred million bucks after leaving office. All we Americans are asking for is hearings but the Democratic Congress refuses.
