Title: "Who knew?." [9/11 Cover-Up]
Nancy Pelosi actually said on TV (ABC's "The View") this week concerning her decision not to have impeachment of George W. Bush on the table that "If somebody had a crime that the President had committed, that would be a different story." She also said that "you can't do that [pass legislation] if you're trying to impeach the President at the same time, unless you have the goods that this president committed crimes."
She knows that he committed crimes, because she knows that he authorized torture. She was informed. She was shown.
She also knows that he authorized illegal domestic, warrantless spying, because she knows that the telecoms have been granted immunity for collaborating with the NSA on dragnet surveillance that was illegal at the time and still constitutes an unconstitutional search of people's private communications (what the people had a right to expect would be private, respected communications). The people can't now even feel comfortable discussing sensitive family and personal issues over the phone or via any medium without the government listening in or reading, etc. The constitution clearly forbids that.
Nancy Pelosi knows that George W. Bush demanded to receive only the so-called intelligence (fabricated wholesale in many cases with his knowledge) that would allow him to paint a false picture of Iraq so he could invade without cause. Hundreds of thousands of people would be alive today many of them women and children, had Bush not done that. Millions would not have been displaced as refugees.
Those are just a few of his crimes. He also covered up 9/11.
Nancy Pelosi needs to be removed with the Bush administration, including Cheney at the same time. She's being a terrible Speaker of the House and is complicit in torture since she knew and did nothing to stop it. Now she's working to cover-up for George W. Bush and herself.
Impeachment isn't punishment. It's just removing a bad shepherd.
