Tell Congress to Hold Miers and Bolten in Contempt!

Within the coming weeks, the House is expected to consider contempt resolutions against former White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers. Asserting executive privilege, President Bush ordered his aides to ignore congressional subpoenas seeking information on the U.S. attorneys firing scandal. Tell Congress to hold the administration accountable!

The more the White House hides, obstructs, and obfuscates the truth about the U.S. attorney scandal, the clearer it is that Congress must take a stand for constitutional checks and balances and the principle that in America no one, not even the president, is above the law. Will you sign the petition calling on your Members of Congress to reject the president's bogus claims of executive privilege? Congress has the constitutional power to hold this president accountable, and it's time to use it!
