Broader Privilege Claimed In Firings

Bush administration officials unveiled a bold new assertion of executive authority yesterday in the dispute over the firing of nine U.S. attorneys, saying that the Justice Department will never be allowed to pursue contempt charges initiated by Congress against White House officials once the president has invoked executive privilege.
The position presents serious legal and political obstacles for congressional Democrats, who have begun laying the groundwork for contempt proceedings against current and former White House officials in order to pry loose information about the dismissals.
What this order is saying is that the President by just exerting executive privilege can stop any official from testifying and the Congress will have no legal recourse.

We have officially entered the reign of King George. It is time for the impeachment and removal of this very dangerous man from the Presidency. He believes he and his cronies are above the law. When will the American people finally udnerstand exactly what is happening and march in the streets for the removal of this cancer on the Presidency?
