Henery Waxman: Bush and Cheney Deserve Contempt they Are Receiving
...and that contempt is just starting to boil over, Mr. Waxman.
Pity the poor soul that gets caught in the way of the fury to come.
Chairman Waxman on President Bush’s Decision to Commute
July 2nd, 2007 by Karina
Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman released the following statement on President Bush’s commutation of Lewis “Scooter” Libby’s prison sentence today:
Former President Bush once said: “I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious of traitors.”
That’s exactly what happened to Valerie Wilson. Her identity was revealed, putting her, her family, and our country at risk.
President Bush and Vice President Cheney deserve the widespread contempt they are receiving for this indefensible decision. The Libby commutation makes a mockery of our judicial system and our most fundamental values.
