No blank check for the President...

Sen. Arlen Specter (R) said that Bush could theoretically face impeachment charges over eavesdropping.  The Senate Judiciary Committee has promised hearings on this travesty to Americans rights.  I have posted several stories on this dilemma, but I think that it’s a worthy case.  The hearings are supposed to start next month; in fact, U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has stated that he will testify on the administrations justification.  Specter said, "We're going to explore it in depth”, he also added, "I don't think anybody doubts that the president is making a good faith effort, that he sees a real problem as we all do, and he's acting in a way that he feels he must”.  

In contrast, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D) said on CBS, “Bush's constitutional powers allow him to simply avoid the law when he can do it (authorize domestic spying) by following the law”.  The New York Times said Eavesdropping is, "a shameful act”.  I cannot imply that this would have ever seen the light of day, without the leak.  However, leaks in the government are never good, yet there are exceptions like this one.  Republicans, Democrats, Conservatives, and Liberals are crossing the isles to study the constitutional law, to grasp whether it’s lawful or not.  I’m curious to see what the outcome will be.  What’s your opinion?
