Target the Insider Democrats

Here is one perspective on why the Democrat Party leadership is giving George W. Bush a pass on his numerous crimes, and a strategy for doing something about it.

1. A small number of Democrats, in key leadership positions, were privy to classified briefings prior to the Iraq war. They were also informed, in advance, of Bush's warrantless domestic spying program and a number of other constitutional abuses.

2. Many of these abuses are felony crimes, which can be prosecuted outside of the congressional impeachment process. [See footnote on Vincent Bugliosi, author of "The Prosecution of George Bush for Murder."]

3. As witnesses with advanced knowledge, these insider Democrats might be legally liable for "tacit approval" of the Bush administration's crimes. Short of that, this hand full of Democrats are at risk to potential career-ending shame if the details of the Bush administration crimes get out.

4. Most of these same Democrat party leaders continue to control the Congressional agenda, including whether or not the Bush administration will be investigated. Most famously, one of them, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, says no, "Impeachment is off the table."

5. The logic suggests that this small number of insider Democrats might be the blocking investigation of Bush due to fear of their own implication if the details were to come out.

6. If this small number of insider Democrats are blocking the investigation, then their removal from power would greatly increase the prospect of learning the details of Bush's crimes.

7. This suggests a political strategy. All of these Democrat insiders should be targeted for removal from office; it's a small group, therefore, the possibility of succeeding in their removal is within reason.

8. Cindy Shehan is an example of this strategy playing out. She is running against Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

9. Targets for removal include:
Jane Harmon (D-CA) the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee,
Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-WV), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee,
Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader
Harry Reid (D-NV), Senate Minority Leader


As an aside, Vincent Bugliosi has laid out a solid case that Bush, Rice and Cheney (maybe even Rove) are likely guilty of capital murder. The mock cross examination of Bush, who has to take the stand or looks guilty, is perhaps the best part of the book. Imagine the prosecutor's line of questioning leading Bush down a dangerous verbal path from which there is no escape... high pitched courtroom drama.
