GONZO IS SINKING FAST : TURN ON CPSAN3 NOW


JD Oversight Hearing ON NOW....
Gonzo would be wise to resign....quickly...Instead he is LYING.
He is sinking fast , Durbin, Spector,Shumer,Feingold and Leahy are leaving no stone unturned.
Torture,Illegal Spying,the Strongarming of Ashcroft and The US Attorney Firings....
( Gonzo is trying to say that Executive ORDERS Trump the Geneva Conventions...WT???)
HOT VERY HOT....

TURN IT ON....

add: If you LIE to Congress..is THAT Impeachable ? Is that a Crime ?

add: I have been taking notes and trying to write more of a synopsis on the Comments.

add: Please go see Susie Q's Post....

( I have to say that these are pretty hot...like Watergate hot...)

6pm UPDATE: Many Blogs have great updates on this Crooks&Liars, Raw Story, FDL, and Susie, and Booman Tribune.
CSPAN 3 ran it all day, and it should be on cspan2 this eve.

Many Senators kept reminding Gonzo to Check his transcripts carefully, and review what he has already said to them, UNDER Oath. They even reminded him that Perjury is a Crime that carries a 5 year Sentence.
The Definition of Perjury:The Willful act of Telling an Untruth or not telling the Truth UNDER OATH. ( Oxford Dictionary)

12:55 Summary:
Okay of all the hearings that we have seen this is the most HOT for Gonzo. They have been confronting him with his own previous testimony, as well as the testimony of Goodling, Comey, they are saying things like " You are not credible ","WHO is telling the truth?", and the split screen helps, really shows the reaction of the moment. They are definently tired of being lied to. Gonzo has the biggest shoulder pads on yet, ( looks like he has a car bumper stuffed under his jacket). Code Pink folks are there and they did yell out "Resign or Impeach HIM" One mom said that her son was over in Iraq Fighting FOR OUR Constitution- it was a very poignant moment and I thought it interesting that cspan left the floor mike on....
1pm:
Leahy is back and just reminded Gonzo THREE times that he better read his transcripts VERY carefully.

1pm Gonzo being questioned by Shumer about the Ashcroft Strongarming- and about had POWERS been signed over....Gonzo is saying that he was well enough to make decisions ( WH???) ALL visitors were barred by wife- bc he as SOOOO sick, Shumer confronted him....Are there Transfer Of Power Documents ? DId you have them? ( hmm, he still has not produced documents on this for them). Did you discuss security matters in front of the wife ? WHO sent you to his bedside ? Hmmm, susposedly he was there on behalf of the Pres- but he won't answer the question directly...Okay more to come...

WOW! Here's hoping they sink that jerkoff's ship.

1:05 pm
Hmmm, Now Shumer is asking about Whether the VP sent him to ashcroft room...hmmm, and again Gonz can not answer...at all....interesting...

Now Questions about the Gang of 8 and descent within...(Comey did not want to sign certain docs.)

Hmm, suddenly the trip to the Hosp was about OTHER intel activities. .....

1:10pm...
( had to go wrestle the cat off the screen door)
Now back to this...
Shumer was asking what Gonzo thought of Fitz being called before this committee, and Gonzo looked very uncomfortable....Now Arlen is again bringing up the Oxy case- what is this about...I don't get it.

Shumer also did bring up the Border Guard case, so that was good...another FUBAR...

Hmm, Spector mentions that perjury carries 5 penalty charge...hmm, why is he mentioning that....( I mean come on should he have to remind Gonzo of the perjury laws ???...) Spector did point out that JD is next to the Defense as import. dept.

Leahy is now talking about how important this Crisis is....and how they have been undermined...Gonz is blinking like a newborn doe waking up in the forest....

1:20 hearing ends Code PINK yelling loud...resign and "this Country is run by Criminals"....shit..pretty hot...
let's pray it gets hotter...

1:30 pm, cspan is re-running this, great. ( and the split screen is marvelous).

TomCat said...

Thanks e4e!! I wish I could get C-SPAN 3!! Sounds like Gonzo is in deep!

an average patriot said...

He should resign but he will not. even with his obvious lies and cover ups Bush has more faith in him than ever.
As you know, being a faithful liar is requirement one for Bush. If he can rely on you to lie through thick and thin your in. Look at his list of cronies and their records.
I'm sorry, Gonzo is a worm. I just hope they keep after him until something breaks but then they will only lie a little louder and longer crying foul. I hate this @#!!

Larry said...

Haul the wretch out in cuffs.

Political Realm said...

Of course, no matter how much trouble it looks like he's in, there is no worry. He answers only to Bush and that means he'll stay, because there is no concern for the rule of law in this administration.

Coffee Messiah said...

I'm beginning to wonder where all these political types went to school?

When did "not" answering a direct question, with a "direct" answer start to occur?

Gulp, 6 yrs ago with this bunch, but it's getting worse! ; (

I'm tired of "stories" that aren't even good stories to go with their smoke and mirrors! ; (

enigma4ever said...

CM: I know that we have suffered this MOB run Criminal laden form of govt is hideous...

Political Realm: I know he Thinks he only answers to the prez- but he is NOT the WH counsel anymore-- he is under scrutiny and the Senate and the Congress do play a role in whether he is fit for his duties....so esp if he lies to Congress ( which he has) and lied repreatedly in writing - there may indeed be much more to come....

Larry: I am with you- get the cuffs ready....and for more than Gonzo....Rove too.

Patriot: Hang in there , this aint going away....at all...Leahy and Conyers are committed to seeing this through..

Tomcat: check the cspan schedule, this should be reaired on cpsan 2 later today or this eve...that is how they usually do it- now Cspan 3 has been reairing it ALL day...it is hot...( esp the part about asking about HOW involved is the WH, and the VP's office- holy hell, that is the Sheldon Whitehouse's questions- and it is in EMAILS)

Write ANY of the Folks- Leahy, Kenndy, Whitehouse, Feingold, or Spector and thank them and tell then NOT to let up...if they don't save Justice we have NO govt...None...

The Following Blogs have GREAT updates and liveblogging:
Booman Tribune,
Susie Q,
FDL,

and I am sure that Keith will have more tonight....

D.K. Raed said...

500 satellite stations, but NO C-Span 3, hrmph! I looked, but can't see where cspan1 or 2 is gonna re-run it tonight or soon. Oh, c-span.org has it available to watch online (ouch, my aching back). Thanks for your review! Not only is he a lying evil enabling toady, he is the best known example of the peter principle (outside the prez). ~~ D.K.

aballoflight said...

shhhh ...

whats that faintly growing noise?
are the rats scurrying around in the dark
getting set to jump the scuttling of the pirated ship of state?

Omnipotent Poobah said...

Oops! Too late, I got there after he was already clinging to the stern and holding onto Cheney in a wet wig.

enigma4ever said...

DK : Booman Tribune has great chunks of it and FireDoglake liveblogged it- and the scripted version of it is just as good....promise...I think cspan will run tonight ( that is their norm- I will look into that)

Poopah: OH How I wish that is what happened....Cheney in a wet wig....and

Balloflight: I hope that the rats all start scurrying...and jumping...into the cesspool they have created....many have jumped Sampson, Battles, Comey, Goodling, Ellison, and on and on....

I think they should be less helpful to Abu Ghraib Ghonzales.

It's ok that he's hoist on his own petard.

That's what petards are for.

TomCat said...

Thanks, e4e, I still haven't seen it, but I've studied a good chunk of the transcripts and got a pretty good analysis up this morning.

enigma4ever said...

NB: petard ? so he peed in his panties ???? ( what is a petard....)

Tomcat: YOU totally rock, best sumary today thank you...awesome...( I did comment didn't I ?)
