(WMR (http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/)) -- A former top-level official of the Justice Department in a past Democratic administration told WMR that House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) was warned away from pursuing impeachment hearings on President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney by top officials of the Democratic National Committee and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) because they may have harmed the election chances for Democratic candidates in 2006 and 2008.
The official said he broke with Conyers over the decision and noted Conyers? own vulnerability to pressure arising from his wife Monica Conyers? criminal investigation by the Justice Department, arising from her dealings as president of the Detroit City Council. Mrs. Conyers was ultimately indicted and convicted on federal corruption charges.
Nevertheless, when House Judiciary Committee chairman Peter Rodino (D-NJ) was faced with intimidation by the Nixon administration over purported mob ties, Rodino ignored the threats and successfully brought about his committee?s approval of impeachment charges against President Nixon in 1974. Nixon resigned before his trial began in the Senate.
While the Democratic Party was known to have cold feet on impeaching Bush and Cheney, the role played by the officially non-partisan ACLU comes as a surprise. But as one former Democratic member of Congress put it, the ACLU receives contributions from fake progressives like George Soros whose missions are to control the agenda of the progressive left.
