Senate: Investigate Illegal Wiretapping

Tell the Senate to Investigate Bush's Illegal Wiretapping

On Tuesday March 7, the Senate Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on whether to investigate the domestic wiretaps that the president has already admitted were performed in defiance of the FISA court. Bill Frist has now threatened to restructure the Senate Intelligence Committee itself to strip it of oversight responsibility if it even dares to investigate Bush's dictatorial violations of the law. It is critically important that we speak out now to make sure justice prevails in this very winnable fight. With the votes against him three weeks ago, Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) has already once unilaterally blocked a vote on this matter. We must raise every voice to make sure they know the people will not let them get away with it again.

The key swing votes are Republican "moderates" Olympia Snowe (R-ME, 202-224-5344) and Chuck Hagel (R-NE, 202-224-4224). Let's start calling their offices at 9:00 a.m. and keep calling until they vote for a thorough investigation.

Hey Pollsters: Quit Censoring Impeachment!

Seven months have passed since we began politely asking Corporate Media pollsters to include impeachment questions in their polls. Despite our efforts, every media pollster has refused to include an impeachment question (unless we paid for it). The few that have bothered to reply to our letters (like Richard Morin of the Pentagon Post) have basically told us to go "Cheney" ourselves. In the past two weeks, most of these pollsters have released new data. And every single poll shows a steep drop in Bush's approval rating. It's time to tell the media pollsters to stop censoring the truth and to include an impeachment question in every poll from now until Bush is impeached - and imprisoned.

We have all of their email addresses here. We've been patient for too long - let's give 'em hell!

Wall Street Journal Uses I Word: Graphic Tells the Story Impeachment Proves Risky Political Issue Some Democratic Activists Push Removing Bush From Office, But Mainstream Steers Clear By JEANNE CUMMINGS, Wall Street Journal, March 6, 2006; Page A4

If Democratic candidate Tony Trupiano wins a Michigan House seat this fall, he pledges that one of his first acts will be to introduce articles of impeachment against President Bush.

That has earned Mr. Trupiano the endorsement of ImpeachPAC, a group of Democratic activists seeking to remove Mr. Bush from office. ImpeachPAC's Web site lists 14 candidates offering similar commitments, which are reminiscent of the Republican drive to oust former President Bill Clinton after the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
