Pelosi has already stated that it is her constitutional responsibility to investigate. I am certain that within days of the opening of the new congress, Conyers, Waxman and others will begin holding hearings. They will begin investigating some of the most obvious problems and questions and they will happily go where those investigations lead them.
They will be using prosecutors on their investigative teams. One of the most effective ways prosecutors work is to interrogate and “nail” smaller, lower level perpetrators who then “roll over” to inform on higher ups. This is what will be happening all over Washington.
The sweet thing about congressional hearings is that there are no lawyer-client confidentiality priveleges. Yep. The lawyers have to squeal like stuck pigs or face contempt of congress charges– which they are not very likely to do.
The rolling over will quickly reach the upper echelons of power. The evidence and testimony will build.
First, Cheney will be in the targets. Like Spiro Agnew, Nixon’s vice president, Cheney will resign rather than face serious prison charges.
Will this really happen? Will the Democrats finally stop licking Bush’s sack and actually do something? I highly doubt it. I see Bush leaving office in 2009, and within a few years he will be called a “Great Statesman” in the media, like his recently departed party mate Gerald R. Ford. And the brain dead public will believe it.
