High crimes and misdemeanors, abuse of authority, obstruction of justice

Joe Wilson quoted by Spencer Ackerman @ TPM Muckraker:

“From my viewpoint, the president has stepped in to short circuit the rule of law and the system of justice in our country. In so doing, he has acknowledged Mr. Libby’s guilt for, among other things, obstruction of justice, which by definition is covering up for somebody in a crime. By commuting his sentence, he has brought himself and his office into reasonable suspicion of participation in an obstruction of justice. The commutation of (Libby’s) sentence in and of itself is participation in obstruction of justice.”

    Oh, Whig…when I read that The Bush had commuted Libby, I just shook my head. Surprised? Nope. Just another prime example of the insanity in the Oval Office.

    Yeah, when the public incredulity rises to the sufficient pitch, the congress will simply shrug its shoulders and impeach.

    Our focus has to be on building the public case, because the congress won’t do it until the people demand it.
