Searching for Clues in Washington, D.C.

Something evil, or at least unethical and illegal, is occurring in Washington, D.C. There are documents which implicate the guilty but they cannot be found, and the Bush administration refuses to comply with subpoenas from Congressional investigators. If you were a detective, who would be your number one suspect, and what room would you look in first? The obvious answer is Dick Cheney, and you’ll find the evidence in his office.

The Washington Post reports that Cheney’s office has many papers on the warrantless wiretaps:

Vice President Cheney’s office acknowledged for the first time yesterday that it has dozens of documents related to the administration’s warrantless surveillance program, but it signaled that it will resist efforts by congressional Democrats to obtain them.

The disclosure by Cheney’s counsel, Shannen W. Coffin, came on the day that the Senate Judiciary Committee had set as a deadline for the Bush administration to turn over documents related to the wiretapping program, which allowed the National Security Agency to monitor communications between the United States and overseas without warrants.

Ok, we have the guilty party. But did Dick Cheney do it by violating the Constitution in the Executive Branch or in the Legislative Branch? Hopefully those in Congress who plan contempt charges have a clue.
