Dear Democratic Senators,

Senate Panel Rebuffed on Documents on U.S. Spying

The Bush administration is rebuffing requests from members of the Senate Judiciary Committee for its classified legal opinions on President Bush's domestic spying program, setting up a confrontation in advance of a hearing scheduled for next week, administration and Congressional officials said Wednesday.

Dear Democratic Senators,

Please go ahead and "screw things up" in the Senate if the Bush administration continues to stonewall on the domestic wiretapping program.

Please consider this to be the Constitutional crisis that it is.

Please act accordingly to this Constitutional crisis, without regard to any bogus and phantom fears of "being seen as obstructionist," or "being seen as weak on national security."

Please develop a simple, coherent, and honest message about why you are halting any other action in the Senate until there are full hearings about this domestic spying program.

Please represent those of us who feel that our system of government has been subverted by this administration. It is not within the power of the Executive branch to create a wholly new legal system, yet this is what has been happening over the last four years.

Represent your constituents. Represent your branch of the government. Represent the Democratic party's ideals. Represent the ideals on which this country was founded.

Thank you.
