DSM Update From John Conyers

The following is an email I received from John Conyers yesterday afternoon...

No More Pardons for Traitor-gate Criminals

Convicted Previously of National Security Crimes, Elliott Abrams Joins Rove and Libby as Latest Figures Newest Figure in Traitor-gate

Dear Robbie:

Did you know that Elliot Abrams, pardoned by the first President Bush for the Iran-Contra crimes he committed under the Reagan Administration, now works for the Bush White House? And has been implicated in the leak of Valerie Plame's covert identity?

I have sent a letter to President Bush asking him to say right now that he will not pardon anyone found guilty of criminal offenses related to the disclosure of Valerie Plame’s CIA cover. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald may indict senior White House officials in this case. Join me in demanding that the President not pardon anyone found guilty in his administration who compromises our national security! To send your own copy of this letter to President Bush by email, click here. Our goal is to get at least 10,000 people to email the White House and we will post our tally updates daily on the website.

Nine of my Judiciary Committee colleagues also joined me yesterday in sending a letter to the Inspector General seeking an investigation into the 12-hour delay taken by Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez before notifying White House staff of the need to preserve documents relating to the Department of Justice’s Valerie Plame leak investigation. Even more troubling is that the Department of Justice only began its investigation 67 days after the CIA first requested it, and only after the Agency asked DoJ four times.

Treason-gate House Parties

Thank you for signing up for House Party events. I hope you were able to find one in your neighborhood. See reports and photos from house parties across the country at Please also consider registering and posting your own comments about this past weekend’s events. We would love to hear from you.

As you know, Ambassador Joseph Wilson joined me on a conference call into 320 House Parties with Air America host Randi Rhodes and Democracy Radio's Stephanie Miller. In the call, Ambassador Wilson touched on an element of the emerging scandal with the Administration's leak of Valerie Plame's CIA cover that we would all do well to keep in mind. The Administration's leaks and the Downing Street memos are part of the same issue: they both reflect desperate attempts by the Bush White House to preserve this web of lies that got us into this war under false pretenses.

To listen to a recording of the conference call, visit my website at

Follow the breaking news on Traitor-gate and the Downing Street Minutes on the Stephanie Miller and Randi Rhodes newscasts.

On the front page of my website I have highlighted all the action items that we need to do following the house parties. Click here to take action now.

Please continue to stay in touch and stay involved. It is from the ground up that we will defeat the lies and deceit of this Administration. You are making a difference.


Congressman John Conyers, Jr.
