    Re: Cheney linked to concealment of CIA briefings

    Before we talk about arrest we need to establish that Cheney did indeed break the law. I believe that Cheney is capable to have broken the law because he has exhibited the behaior of a guilty person trying o cover up his actions. He also had his own daughter running interference for him earlier this year. What Cheney will do is use the old tired excuse that the information was sensitive or classified and that making it public could have caused harm to the U.S. In essence usethe the old 'natinal security' card.

    No one wants to cause harm to their own country. I would hope that Cheney did not tell the CIA to do or not to do something just so that he could cover up something that the adiministration he was serving was doing.

    At this point I would say that Cheney has the poor character to harm his country if it means helpng himself but I do not think that we havethe information yet to proof that.

    Feinstein suggests CIA concealment broke law - Yahoo! News

    Six months into Barack Obama's presidency, twin investigations may be on the horizon into Bush-era policies in the war on terror.

    Two senators including the head of the intelligence committee suggested Sunday that the prior administration broke the law by concealing a CIA counter-terrorism program from Congress.

    The assertion that Vice President Dick Cheney ordered the concealment came amid word that Attorney General Eric Holder is contemplating opening a criminal probe of possible CIA torture.

    Can we arrest him now?
    I mean that, by the way :P .

    He ordered the CIA to blatantly mislead the Congress of the United States, is that illegal or is not?
    No actually it's not illegal for the President or the Vic President to order the CIA not to release certain items to Congress it falls under Ex. Priv. and has been going on for allot longer then Mr. Bush or Mr. Cheney.

    So get over it folks, the Dems can scream to high water and their is nothing they can do about it unless they want to go and re-write US Code 50.

    Call Feinstein, ask him what statute was violated, and then get back to me.

    Ahh you would look a tad better if you understood the Gender of Sen. Feinstein he is a she and she is the Head of the Senate Intel. Committtie but I do agree with you she has no idea what she is talking about her and Speaker Pelosi need to go back and read US Code 50 before they make more fools of themselfs.

    Well then it would fall under the United States Supreme Court to order such thing and this will never happen US Codes are passed by Congress and can't be undone unless they go thru the Court System.

    Beside do you know what US Code 50 is and what would happen if Congress tried to re-write US Code 50.

    I looked at a small portion of it, but truthfully, I do not know what section has bearing on your statement.

    Even if they did, it wouldn't make anything that happened before the revision an ex post facto violation.
