Congressman Robert Wexler Confronts Condi on War Lies; Demands Contempt Vote *video*
So I just received this e-mail from Congressman Wexler:
hearings on Capitol Hill, I confronted Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice on her role in the lies, exaggerations, and misdirection that led
us into the Iraq war.
During my questioning, Secretary
Rice falsely stated that she never saw intelligence casting doubt on
the Bush Administration claims that Saddam possessed weapons of mass
destruction. This unbelievable statement is flatly
contradicted by numerous government reports and CIA testimonials. (Click "Here's the Video" above to see this, it's great!)
Rice's responses demonstrate once and for all that we need aggressive
oversight over this out of control Administration. Unfortunately, the
Bush Administration has ignored the constitutional right of Congress to
provide such oversight.
It is time Congress took aggressive action to assert our rights on behalf of the American people.
House of Representatives must immediately hold former White House
Counsel Harriet Miers and White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten in
contempt of Congress for their failure to respond to congressional
I have been aggressively lobbying Members
of Congress to support a vote on contempt, and I am thrilled to report

vote on resolutions of both civil and criminal contempt for both Miers
No one should be immune from accountability and the rule of law.
Not Harriet Miers or Josh Bolten.
And especially not Condoleezza Rice, George W. Bush or Dick Cheney.
It is time to defend the Constitution and our rights as a co-equal branch of government.
will continue to take on the Bush Administration for their outrageous
abuses just as I confronted Condoleezza Rice today and Attorney General
Mukasey last week.
your help we will hold these top Bush officials in contempt and
continue our efforts to hold impeachment hearings for Vice President
Thank you, as always, for your great support.
Congressman Robert Wexler
