Over 5,000 of you have taken action in calling for Congress to commence impeachment hearings against Jay Bybee. This afternoon, ThinkProgress spoke with Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) about the campaign. She told us:
I would support impeachment hearings for Judge Bybee. ... We’ve already seen that he’s willing to interpret the laws in ways that are counter to the fundamental values of our country. I think that is a proper response.
We also asked Schakowsky, who is Chairwoman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations (http://intelligence.house.gov/SubCommittees.aspx?ID=2 - broken link), for her reaction to Obama’s suggestion that he would be open to a bipartisan truth commission. She told us that she is currently in conversations this week with her staff about how to proceed, but emphasized that her interest would be in holding “open public hearings” on the issue.

I do have to admit that it gives me great satisfaction seeing Bush and his Administration slowly but surely coming apart at the seams... The country has been waiting for this for probably a few years. Well, when we all found the Iraq War was based on lies...
