Senator Russ Feingold

On the Need for Accountability for Bush Administration Wrongdoings

WASHINGTON - The following statement can be attributed to Senator Russ Feingold:

“I applaud Senator Leahy’s leadership in proposing the
establishment of a truth and reconciliation commission.  Getting all the
facts out about what happened over the last eight years is a crucial part of
restoring the rule of law.  As President Obama and Attorney General Holder
have said, nobody is above the law.  There needs to be accountability for
wrongdoing by the Bush Administration, including the illegal warrantless
wiretapping and interrogation programs.  We cannot simply sweep these
assaults on the rule of law under the rug.”
