Feingold Wants Bush Censured


Russ Feingold says President Bush should be censured by the Senate:

March 12, 2006— In an exclusive interview on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold called on the Senate to publicly admonish President Bush for approving domestic wiretaps on American citizens without first seeking a legally required court order.

“This conduct is right in the strike zone of the concept of high crimes and misdemeanors,” said Feingold, D-Wis., a three-term senator and potential presidential contender.

He said President Bush had, “openly and almost thumbing his nose at the American people,” continued the NSA domestic wiretap program.

President Bush has long asserted that the so-called ‘warrantless wiretaps’ are an essential tool in the war on terror.

Senator Feingold must have forgotten that the American people overwhelmingly support this program, which is why the story has disappeared from the headlines and the Dems stopped bringing it up…until today.

It’s obviously an election cycle.

The Washington Times discusses Feingold’s censure idea in its editorial today.

The White House responds as well.
