Mukasey won't pursue contempt probe of Bush aides

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey refused on Friday to pursue contempt citations issued by the House of Representatives against a current and a former White House aide for not cooperating in a probe of the firing of U.S. attorneys.
Saying no crime was committed, Mukasey rejected a request by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to refer the citations to a federal grand jury investigation of current White House chief of staff Josh Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers. . .
The Democratic-led House of Representatives voted 223-32 earlier this month, with most of President George W. Bush's fellow Republicans abstaining, to pursue legal action against Bolten and Miers for failing to provide documents and appear at a hearing. . . .
Mukasey said in the letter to Pelosi that Bush, citing executive privilege, had directed his two aides not to comply, and the Justice Department had determined that Bush's order was legal and therefore it would not take any further action.
Remember when Reagan was called the "teflon president" because no matter how devious or dastardly his administration got, the scandal and charges just seemed to slide off him. The treasonous acts of the administration were paraded out in full view of the public.
Then Clinton came along and he couldn't leave a skid mark on his skivies without a congressional investigation. After spending tens of millions of dollars on special prosecutors and the employment of witch hunt tactics, they finally got Slick Willy for lying to congress about a blow job he got from an intern in the Oval Office. Wow, what a crime, but they got him and impeached him for it where they couldn't manage to do a thing to Reagan for treason.
Well, now we have a president who should be charged with treason and crimes against humanity. He has lied to congress and the American people consistently. Now his appointed AG has decided to give them a pass while being in contempt of congress. This is absurd.
Strangely, the proles remain silent as if it's OK for them to be treated like dumb ignorant morons by this teflon administration and a congress that is somehow in cahoots with these recreant scum sucking bottom feeders.
I have predicted over and over that by the year 2050, the United States of America will be a third world country under the auspices of the EU and Japan and its allies. They will be holding world-wide conferences on "The American Problem."
