Letter to the Editor
People seem surprised when Attorney General Alberto Gonzales lies to Congress as if they expect him to tell the truth. Why should he tell the truth? After all, who is going to investigate him? The Justice Department? He is the Justice Department. And even if he were investigated, brought to trial and convicted of perjury he’d never go to jail because Bush would pardon him just like he did for Scooter Libby. So Gonzales and anyone in the Bush administration can break the law with impunity and get away with it.
The Democrats don’t have the votes to impeach Bush and Cheney. It takes two thirds of the Senate to remove Bush from office. The Democrats want to impeach Bush but nothing is going to happen unless the Republicans decide to stop the lawlessness too. The Republicans are the ones allowing Bush to flaunt the law. We need to hold the Republican party accountable for allowing the Bush administration to act lawlessly.
