    So Bush has already said dem's should accept his offer for the top white house aides to testify privately, not under oath, with no transcript.

    The congressional committee said they will pursue subpoenas, and i just heard they approved going ahead with issuing subpoenas today.

    Showdown is set between Bush and congress.
    Lets see how the balance of powers prevails.

    If there was no illegal/unethical conduct involved with the firings why would bush refuse to allow them to testify before congress under oath?

    Because Clinton fired 83 juctises under the same conditions and it was understood by everyone that this was just the ebb and flow from the two parties while they hold the Executive office.

    Bush does 10% of what Clinton did and it's a major debatable item. This is just further proof that the primary goal of Dems is not the stated ethics reform and repair of America but rather a witch hunt so that in the post Monica-Gate era the Dem's can say "Gotcha Back"

    so the pressure on the attorneys to push charges on Dem's prior to the election and their failure to rush things has nothing to do with this?

    and why must they testify in private?
    i'm curious what they'll have to say
    transparency should not be an option when it comes to a democratic gov't

    But somehow the media nor the congress felt like we needed an under oath hearing

    anyways here's the link if you want to read it. IMO this debacle is just another example of partisan policis running away with our government during a time when our Nation's security on several fronts needs severe attention.


    Media Reality Check -- 12/03/1997 -- Clinton's Apolitical Justice Department?

    the testify in private not under oath thing stems from Janet Reno being allowed to do the same after her firings

    look dood if your actually making a call to arms on this I'm not going to debate you, this entire thing in lunacy
