More Crooked Than Nixon

U.S. Constitution: Fourth Amendment

Search and Seizure
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The crooks in the White House lie as easily as they breathe. Their crimes have surpassed Nixon's dirty tricks. Nixon was desperate to listen in on his enemies as are the current White House occupants. It's against the law and in violation of the Constitution Nixon and Bush swore to uphold. The Bushies have gotten it down to a fine art. Nixon would be so jealous.

FBI Finds Nixon Aides Sabotaged Democrats

FBI agents have established that the Watergate bugging incident stemmed from a massive campaign of political spying and sabotage conducted on behalf of President Nixon's re-election and directed by officials of the White House and the Committee for the Re-election of the President.

The activities, according to information in FBI and Department of Justice files, were aimed at all the major Democratic presidential contenders and -- since 1971 -- represented a basic strategy of the Nixon re-election effort.

During their Watergate investigation, federal agents established that hundreds of thousands of dollars in Nixon campaign contributions had been set aside to pay for an extensive undercover campaign aimed at discrediting individual Democratic presidential candidates and disrupting their campaigns.

"Intelligence work" is normal during a campaign and is said to be carried out by both political parties. But federal investigators said what they uncovered being done by the Nixon forces is unprecedented in scope and intensity.

Until now. Dick Cheney is more paranoid than Dick Nixon. He will stop at nothing to continue the neocon (PNAC) agenda and rake in more dough, including leaking the names of CIA agents through his Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby.

Scooter is using the Ollie North defense. (I was only doing things I was authorized to do and the person who authorized me can't tell you anything because it would endanger our national security and harm our troops and it's unpatriotic to ask.)

Libby: 'Superiors' authorized disclosure
Scooter' will claim Cheney encouraged him to share classified information

According to the “National Journal,” Scooter Libby, Vice President Cheney‘s former chief-of-staff testified to a federal grand jury that he was authorized by the vice president and other superiors to leak classified information to journalists, in order to defend the administration‘s case for war in Iraq.

It seems to me like a bombshell the fact that the man on trial now, about to go to trial for having broken the law by either lying under oath or obstruction of justice in the leak case, is now telling prosecutors that his boss told him to do it.

What makes it so significant is this now marks the very first time that the defense is putting Vice President Cheney right at the heart of these leaks about Valerie Wilson, the wife of administration critic Joe Wilson.

Legal sources in case are telling us that this came up recently in a conference call with the judge in the case and Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. There was a discussion about evidence and requests by the defense, by Scooter Libby to get classified documents and it was during this conversation, according to lawyers, that Scooter Libby‘s lawyers said that part of their defense is based on the idea that Scooter Libby was acting on orders by his superiors, including Vice President Cheney.

Hahaha....yeah, this will work.
ABA chief says Bush should obey law on spying
February 11, 2006
Associated Press
CHICAGO - The president of the nation's largest lawyers' group said Friday that President Bush should comply with federal law when conducting electronic surveillance of Americans and refrain from scaring people into giving up their civil liberties in the fight against terrorism.

In the meantime, Cheney says it's all within their legal rights. These thugs are NOT going to give up any power. They like it too much.
