The Campaign For DA

For Political Junkies

There is currently a special prosecutor investigation going on in Washington that's hard to follow. In any event, it looks like indictments may be handed down this week that will name at least one Republican in high places. Karl Rove, advisor of W, is in the cross hairs. So...... You have to listen to Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison on Meet the Press this morning doing damage control. She stated that she hoped any indictment wasn't based upon the "perjury technicality". (Video, which is 2:45 long, in here) What? Republicans now say perjury is no big deal? But wait, didn't she vote to impeach Clinton for perjury in the Senate? Yep. This is what she said in 1998: "Willful, corrupt, and false sworn testimony before a Federal grand jury is a separate and distinct crime under applicable law and is material and perjurious if it is 'capable' of influencing the grand jury in any matter before it, including any collateral matters that it may consider." I vote `Guilty' on Article I, Perjury. I vote`Guilty' on Article II, Obstruction of Justice." Amazingly, she also said on Meet The Press that Clinton faced "more charges" in the Senate than just Perjury and Obstruction of Justice. That's a lie.
