Executive Privilege My Ass. Game On. Let's Have a Treason Trial.

BushCheney "President Bush today blocked an attempt by a House committee to obtain internal FBI documents from the CIA leak investigation, asserting that notes from interviews of Vice President Cheney and other White House officials are protected by executive privilege.

The move further escalates the conflict between the White House and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which has issued a subpoena to Attorney General Michael B. Mukasey in an attempt to secure records related to FBI interviews in the leak investigation.

Cheney and other officials were interviewed during special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald's effort to determine who disclosed the identity of former CIA officer Valerie Plame to the media. The investigation eventually resulted in the conviction of Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI."

President Bush, Sr. passed a law making it an act of treason to "out" a CIA agent who is working in the field. So now, his simple son's administration has broken that law and trying to get out of it by claiming executive privilege.

Put Bush, Jr. and Dick Cheney under oath. Let the trial begin. This will be quicker than impeachment.

Is the penalty for treason still death?
