The color of treason


by eriposte

If Senator Pat Roberts (R-Ah-Luv-Treason) is really trying to set up Congressional hearings with a view of offering Karl Rove and Lewis Libby immunity from future prosecution in return for their, um, "valuable" testimony on Treasongate, about, um, themselves, then there's one thing we can easily say.

If Karl Rove and Lewis Libby were really innocent of wrongdoing in Treasongate, they would NOT require congressional immunity from *anything*.

So, Democrats, there's no reason to not roll out your response starting now.

If Pat Roberts or anyone else wants to offer them immunity, that would constitute direct evidence that they themselves believe Rove and Libby are guilty.

If Pat Roberts or anyone else wants to go after Patrick Fitzgerald, that would constitute direct evidence that they themselves believe Rove and Libby are guilty.

After all, unlike SCOTUS nominee John Roberts' buddy Ken Starr, Patrick Fitzgerald is not seeking the voyeuristic pleasure of studying and recording the details of Rove's sex life.
