Watergate Started Out As A "Two-Bit Burglary"
Valerie Plame Wilson.But once you've established a crime, and that crime leads up to the Oval Office because, well, the guy going to jail was the main assistant to the Vice President, the congressional investigations begin. And the thing about that for Bush and Cheney, and Karl Rove, to worry is that a court doesn't have the power to remove a president, or a vice-president.Congress does.
"Scooter" Libby in Happier Days,
When He Worked For Dick Cheney.
So it's very interesting indeed that, just as Libby is convicted of four of five counts of obstruction of justice and perjury(which established that at least one person in the vice president's office was attempting to deceive, by definition), and the fact that Valerie Plame's name was leaked illegally, unrightfully, and with malice, she herself, the target of the plot that necessitated the deception, testifies before Congress soon. Dick Cheney Prepares To Deal With Congress.
This is where the end may begin, at the very least for Dick Cheney. If I were he, I'd resign now claiming health problems.
But he's stupid enough to stay.
Oh: and over at the Department of Justice, there's this.
