I got to say this is big. I said in my Sunday Line Up post that “This Week” looked promising and indeed it was:
In an exclusive interview on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold called on the Senate to publicly admonish President Bush for approving domestic wiretaps on American citizens without first seeking a legally required court order.
“This conduct is right in the strike zone of the concept of high crimes and misdemeanors,” said Feingold, D-Wis., a three-term senator and potential presidential contender.
He said President Bush had, “openly and almost thumbing his nose at the American people,” continued the NSA domestic wiretap program.
This is the boldest step anyone has done in this Senate to try and write the wrongs of Bush. John Conyers introduced motions of censure last December but the Republican stronghold is to great on the House to get it to move anywhere. This could be the start of something big. You can view the interview at Crooks and Liars, and view the entire transcript at Raw Story. Just to mention, Frist followed up with trying to play the terrorism card again. True Frist is one of the very few who also supported Dubai taking over our ports.
