Anybody Remember The Democrats’ Bill Of Impeachment Of George Bush?

It didn’t get far, so most folks forget.

But that bill of impeachment had some interesting elements to it…

“launched a war…absent any congressional declaration of war or equivalent action.”

” illegally detaining indefinitely and without charge…US citizens”

“knowingly violated the fourth Amendment to the Constitution and the Foreign Intelligence Service Act of 1978 (FISA) by authorizing warrantless electronic surveillance of American citizens…it appears unlikely that a court would hold that Congress has expressly or impliedly authorized the NSA electronic surveillance operations here under discussion”

“violated the Stored Communications Act of 1986 and the Telecommunications Act of 1996 by creating of a very large database containing information related to the private telephone calls and emails of American citizens”

“used signing statements to claim the right to violate acts of Congress even as he signs them into law”

Bit of irony there, no?
