New Confirmation that Libby was a Source for Miller

New Boss for Fitzgerald? Sheehan in Crawford
By Rep. John Conyers

I just read Murray Wass' excellent piece in the American Prospect describing a private meeting between Judith Miller and Scooter Libby on July 8, 2003, two days after Ambassador Wilson's now famous column questioning the WMD assertions of the Administration, and before Novak's outing of Wilson's wife -- based on two administration sources. This is a very comprehensive piece, and adds much critical information to what we know about Treasongate. Wass also explains that one of the key hold ups in Fitzgerald's investigation is that Libby has not yet issued a specific privelege waiver to Miller allowing her to tell the prosecutor what she knows about these alleged crimes. Given that the president said he wanted full cooperation so that the prosecutor could get to the bottom of the security leak, and that he he raised the bar for dismissal to committing a federal crime, this is nothing less than outrageous. Needless to say, I intend to pursue this matter further in the coming days.

Also, I have also read the Newsweek piece on Fitzgerald's supervisor being replaced by a Yale crony of Bush's. This is also of concern, and I will be looking into issues of oversight and recusal concerning Robert McCallum.

Finally, kudos to Cindy Sheehan for speaking truth to power in Crawford, TX (news.baou, via buzzflash). I'm saddened, but not suprised, the president would not meet with her. I delivered a petition signed by more than 560,000 right to the White House and could not even get in the White House.

Rep. Conyers, thank you for being an honest and strong voice for America. Words are inadequate to express our gratitude for having you on the side of Americans and loving our country.

You are a shining light in the very dark halls of our Congress and White House.

ditto and AMEN

How many are already afraid to speak out? John Conyers is a brave man.
It is really time for us to stand together to save our country.

Congressman Conyers,

Thank you once again. I have forwarded and copied the Wass article to many.

Please let us know what we can do to continue helping you.

Rep. Conyers, thank you from me also. You sir, will go down as a true Patriot. I am so thankful for Reps like you. I only wish my Rep. Adam Putnam would be so responsive. But sad to say, he won't even acknowledge my e-mails.

God Bless you,
Perry Jordan

Where are all of the so-called heavy hitters in Congress? John Conyers has shown true courage, real patriotism, in being the first to take a real stand. The bandwagon is about to get really full as the truth begins to take hold with the public, so watch all of the usual suspects trip over each other to get air time . Thank you, Congressman Conyers. Lead on!

I can't tell you how many emails I have written to the House and Senate pleading with the leaders to protect the democracy and it continues to slip away. I have written about the abuse in Iraq, the fraud, the lack of equipment for the military, the poor planning, the lack of reconstruction and on and on and on. Our leadership should be ashamed. There should be no support for the president with the acts against the country the White House has committed. How our congressmen and senators have the guts to return home to their constituency with the record they have is beyond me. You know, there comes a point where party doesn't matter. There comes a point where you look at the actions of the offender and you simply say, "I can't support you anymore. The country comes first. I work for the nation not the president."

Congressman Conyers, we are deeply indebted to you. Your courage and patriotism is an inspiration from which all can draw strnegth to fight the evils of the Bush regime and restore our democracy. I hope you can get to Crawford and draw many of your colleagues from the June 16, 2005 hearings to go along and restage your attmept to deliver the 560,000 signatures to Bush & Co. This would force the main stream media further toward reporting the truth. Keep up the good work and get some of the other Democratic members of the House to get on board. God Bless the true patriots of America!

In particular, get Joe Lieberman on board.

I am so glad you are there, Mr. Conyers, hanging in for the truth. I have tried to email my Congresswoman about HR 375, but her mailbox is apparently not working (and of course Congress is not even in session now.) Thank goodness we still have telephones! We have got to persist on this inquiry.

Thank you Rep. John Conyers, Maxine Waters, Cynthia McKinney, Rep. Barbara Lee.
I have been following the unanswered questions about 9/11, the downing street memos, abu ghraib, plame/cia leak. This all started when G.W.Bush was selected by our own Supreme Court in 2000. It's all part of a Bush/neo-con/right wing relgious coup d'etat to take over our government in it's entirety. The American people are being "dumbed down" through the use of emotional issues (abortion, right to life, guns). The major issues facing our Democracy are not on television.
Let me remind the public, it doesn't matter if you're gay, had an abortion or go to church every Sunday, if you don't have economic means to take care of yourself, the Republican Regime is going to make sure that you end up in poverty, thus our great Democracy and beacon of hope to the rest of the world, will end up nothing more than another third world country, laden with strife between the have's and have nots! That's what's at stake. The truth shall set us free, and yes WE CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH, it is what will save our country.
Now they're looking to stack the Supreme Court with right-wing ideologues (using the kool-aid drinking faithful), so that these investigations will never see the light of day! We can't let that happen.
