Rove: Remember That Story?:by Matthew Wheeland (Associate Editor at AlterNet):
“Over at DailyKos, Congressman John Conyers, who has long been one of the most outspoked voices calling for accountability in the Bush Administration, has new developments in the Rove-Plame scandal.
Starting tomorrow and stretching through next week, 4 House Committees are expected to vote on resolutions addressing the Valerie Plame leak. Specifically, these resolutions demand information from the Bush Administration on the outing of Valerie Plame in apparent retaliation for Ambassador Wilson's truth telling concerning weapons of mass destruction. The Bush Administration refuses to police itself in the midst of criminal and ethical misconduct and it is time for Congress to exercise its duty to oversee the Executive Branch.
Conyers also lists times and websites where you can watch and listen to these discussions, and explains why this is a crucial step:
We have no illusions that the Republicans in Congress are suddenly going to reverse course and start demanding accountability on this, or any other matter, that involves Bush Administration misconduct that is damaging to the nation. However, starting tommorrow, they will have to go on record and explain their votes defending criminal activity on the part of high ranking officials. That is the beginning of congressional accountability.”
