Cheney's Law

Official: Cheney Urged Wiretaps - washingtonpost.com:
Comey's disclosures, made in response to written questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee, indicate that Cheney and his aides were more closely involved than previously known in a fierce internal battle over the legality of the warrantless surveillance program. The program allowed the National Security Agency to monitor phone calls and e-mails between the United States and overseas.

Comey said that Cheney's office later blocked the promotion of a senior Justice Department lawyer, Patrick Philbin, because of his role in raising concerns about the surveillance.
Where does the big Dick get off telling the Justice Department what is or is not legal? No wonder this country is sinking into despotism. Look who's giving the orders!
