Activism: Co-Sponsor H. Res. 1531 Against The Bush Blanket Pardons

Because of the tens of thousands of our action page submissions in the last couple weeks, the mainstream media is actually talking about the prospect of blanket pardons, including the despicable act of Bush planning to pardon himself.
The White House has even been forced to issue a non-denial denial, saying that Bush is "disinclined" to issue such pardons.


Tell Your Member Of Congress To Oppose The Pardons Before Bush Absolves Himself

5,587 Submissions so far

And because of your voices we are actually seeing movement in Congress as well. Representative Nadler has put forward H. Res. 1531, which has some really terrific text in it about the intent of the founders and how this all relates to impeachment, so there is a definite suggestion there that a self pardon in particular would be compelling grounds for impeachment. Please submit this action page as well to ask your House member to co-sponsor this.
In an article in the New York Times the other day, current attorney general Mukasey is quoted as asserting it would not be "necessary" to grant blanket pardons. But please take careful note he did not say it wouldn't happen, because unless we speak out now it WILL.
