Fein Calls for Bush Impeachment

Via Scienceblogs (of all places!!)

 Bruce Fein, a very well respected conservative legal scholar and Reagan’s Deputy Attorney General, has officially called for Bush to be impeached for what he calls “political crimes against the Constitution.” He did so on Keith Olbermann’s show last night (here’s the full transcript):

OLBERMANN: Do you think this president needs to be impeached?FEIN: Yes. I think the founding fathers intended the impeachment threshold to be satisfied if there were political crimes against the Constitution, against our checks and balances and separation of powers. Those are the mechanisms, what you might call the scientific method for staying on an even keel, avoiding folly and abuses. And I think that President Bush over the years has crippled that mechanism.
