Friday, July 20, 2007George Bush is now claiming that he can freeze the bank accounts of American citizens without due process (via Orcinus), and that he will refuse to execute a contempt of Congress charge against White House staff through a ridiculously broad interpretation of executive privilege.
Enough is enough. I recognize that there aren't the votes in Congress to remove this criminal from office, and censure isn't enough for these blatant attacks on the Constitution. So how about this: defund the White House. Not the cabinet departments. Just the White House. There wouldn't be any White House staff. At all. He doesn't want his staff to testify before Congress? Okay then - he doesn't get any. Let's see how well Bush can get along over the next 18 months running the executive branch all by his lonesome.
