1000 American lawyers call for Congress to do its job

We are lawyers in the United States of America. As such, we have all taken an oath obligating us to defend the Constitution and the rule of law….

We believe the Bush administration has committed numerous offenses against the Constitution and may have violated federal laws….

Moreover, the administration has blatantly defied congressional subpoenas, obstructing constitutional oversight ….

Thus, we call on House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers and Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy to launch hearings into the possibility that crimes have been committed by this administration in violation of the Constitution….

We call for the investigations to go where they must, including into the offices of the President and the Vice President.

-- American Lawyers Defending the Constitution


From the Nation:
Over one thousand lawyers – including former Governor Mario Cuomo and former Reagan administration official Bruce Fein – have signed onto the above statement demanding wide-ranging investigative hearings into unconstitutional and potentially criminal activity by the Bush administration.
Unfortunately, with wimps like Pelosi and Reid in charge, this will go nowhere. But, I can dream, can't I?
