Whitehouse to investigate White House

"If Obama doesn’t investigate Bush’s crimes, I will."

Oh plz oh plz oh plz oh plz.....

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Ballsack) says that he understands Obama’s reluctance to pursue investigations but that he may take matters into his own hands:

“I appreciate that President Obama doesn’t want to make it his purpose as a new president, with America in real distress in many directions, to go back and look at all this, but I think we in Congress have an independent responsibility, and I fully intend to discharge that responsibility,” Whitehouse said.

"And if that human jellyfish Harry Reid gets in my way, I'll kick his ass!" he should have added.

Whitehouse, sworn in on 1/4/07, said at that time that "a top personal priority is to examine the warrantless activities of this administration.” Bonus:

In a 487-page report out yesterday recapping Bush’s “imperial presidency,” House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Nads) recommends that “the incoming Administration finally begin an independent criminal review of activities of the outgoing Administration.”
