The so-called GOP "hearings" I posted last night has nothing to do with getting to the truth of Treasongate. No siree Bob. It is about going after the federal prosecutor Fitzgerald. What a despicable lot of liars and thugs the GOP has become. They are in so deep they will stop at nothing now. Wake up America. Wake the hell up and fire your lying, bullying and corrupt GOP lawmakers. Next they'll be throwing anyone who disagrees with them into the gas chambers. LS

GOP GOES AFTER PROSECUTOR IN LEAK CASE
The story starts off promising enough:
Congress will conduct a series of hearings on national security and espionage issues raised by the CIA-leak controversy surrounding senior Bush adviser Karl Rove, officials said on Monday.
The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence plans hearings on potential national security threats posed by leaks, including leaks to the media, and will aim to toughen legislation barring the unauthorized disclosure of classified information.
"It's time there's a comprehensive law that will make it easier for the government to prosecute wrongdoers and increase the penalties that hopefully will act as a deterrent," said Rep. Pete Hoekstra of Michigan, the panel's Republican chairman.
But get to the last paragraph, and you see this:
[Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) spokeswoman Sarah] Little said the Senate committee would also review the probe of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, who has been investigating the Plame case for nearly two years.
Now why would congressional Republicans want to review Fitzgerald's work? Because he won't fly the elephant above the Stars and Stripes?
