Conyers calls Bush's bluff

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI 14), head of the Democratic faction on the House Judiciary Committee, pulls no punches. Yesterday, he released this 26-page indictment of the current White House and their total lack of respect for the time honoured system of checks and balances. Josh Marshall at TPM lets it speak for itself without further comment.

It's lengthy, but worth a read. If nothing else, it shows that even Richard Nixon, for all his misdeeds, had more respect for the democratic process and for Congress itself; than the man in the Oval Office right now.
