Biden: Criminal Charges Against Bush Admin. On The Table

erku's picture

How did the political radar miss this news. Joe Biden tells ABC "If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation," he said, "they will be pursued, not out of vengeance, not out of retribution - out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no one, no attorney general, no president, no one is above the law."

I direct your attention to the 9th and 10th paragraphs of their blog post about Biden ripping into Bush today:

Looking to the future but with one eye on the past, Biden also promised that an Obama-Biden government would go through Bush administration data with "a fine-toothed comb" and pursue criminal charges if necessary.

"If there has been a basis upon which you can pursue someone for a criminal violation," he said, "they will be pursued, not out of vengeance, not out of retribution - out of the need to preserve the notion that no one, no one, no attorney general, no president, no one is above the law."

The man who is very likely going to be the next Vice-President of this country just said that they are going to undertake a detailed review of the last eight years of Bush Administration conduct and pursue criminal charges where they are warranted.

Update: Thanks for the recs, guys. Maybe someone in the MSM will see it there and decide that it needs to be in the first paragraph instead of the 9th.

As pointed out in the comments, Obama himself has said something similar recently. I must have missed that when it first appeared. But I would like to point out that Biden's statement is much more aggressive than Obama's, and that in itself is noteworthy.
