Can we impeach him now?

NEW YORK - A newly disclosed
secret memo authored by the Department of Justice's Office of Legal
Counsel (OLC) in March 2003 that asserts President Bush has unlimited
power to order brutal interrogations of detainees also reveals a
radical interpretation of the Constitution's Fourth Amendment
protection from unreasonable search and seizure. The memo, declassified
yesterday as the result of an American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit,
cites a still-secret DOJ memo from 2001 that found that the "Fourth
Amendment had no application to domestic military operations."
Relying on the earlier memo, the March 2003 memo argues that
the president has authority as Commander-in-Chief to bypass not only
the Fourth Amendment but the central due process guarantee of the Fifth
Amendment as well.
"This memo makes a mockery of
the Constitution and the rule of law," said Amrit Singh, a staff
attorney with the ACLU.

Seriously. It's not whether we could, it's when he will be held accountable and how. This goes beyond minor trespasses, it's into the range of great big intentional subversions of the Constitution, dereliction of duty and ...well, let us be blunt. The expressed and proven intent to subvert the constitution and overthrow the rule of the people is treason.

And given the solicitation of such "opinions" from co-conspirators, it's not even really open to debate. A trial - before a court, not the senate - could almost be a formality.

So, the only question is, will the the next president commute his sentence to life at hard labor, without parole, or perpetuate "the New World Order" with a visit to the Bush Library?

I have no doubt that two of the candidates would perpetrate the New World Order if given the chance.

Just a hint, one of the folks drooling for a New World Order is old and deranged.
