Toensing Slam


Just in case anyone missed it, on Wednesday night's "The Situation with Wolf Blitzer", he was interviewing Jeffrey Toobin, a CNN legal analyst on the fact that President Clinton signed orders reference to warrantless searches of American citizens.

Of course Toobin being the DNC talking memo attempted to say that "El-Savior" would never do such as thing. After all "He felt our pain".

Well, later in the show former Federal Proscutor Victoria Toesing called in to the show and set the record straight, as she would know, she was there.

Here is the transcript:

"Wolf Blitzer: "Stand by for a moment, Jeff. Stand by. Victoria Toensing has called us. She's a former justice department official. She's a well known Washington attorney. Vickie, you're hearing the decision I'm having now with Jeff Toobin. You wanted to weigh in. So go ahead, what's your point?"

TOENSING: The Clinton administration did carry out that authority when they went into Aldrich Ames' house without a warrant, and they argued before the House, Jamie Gorelick did, that they had the inherent -- the president had the inherent constitutional authority to do so.

TOOBIN: You know, I -- I really am not. It's worth noting though-- Ames pleaded guilty so there was never a court test of the appropriateness of that search, so I don't -- no court ever passed on it, but how -- what authority was the used I am afraid to say I certainly just don't know what was used.

TOENSING: Well, I can tell you what Jamie Gorelick said before the House committee. She said, "We relied on the inherent authority of the president to conduct warrantless searches." All right, that's a quote.

WOLF: Do you know of any other examples, Vickie, besides the example that you cite?

TOENSING: No, I don't. But I'm well aware of that one. Nobody was crying for impeachment when Bill Clinton did it in the Aldrich Ames case."


The fact is that NO one can cite ONE example NOW where any US citizen has had his civil rights violated or where the order signed by Bush had anywhere near the far reaching effects of Clinton's orders.

It is as you would say, a 'Slam Dunk'.

UPDATE: Washington Times - 'Warrantless' searches not unprecedented'

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
