What angers me is that Fitzgerald can say that Vice President is under a "cloud" but then announce that his investigation of the entire matter is complete.

I heard a pundit recently say that Cheney shouldn't be impeached because none of the lies he said in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq was spoken under oath. All that means is that Congress needs to sub poena him and question him under oath. He will either admit that he was lying (yeah, right!), or he will continue lying, either by reaffirming the content of known untruths (about the bogus connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, for example) or by denying that he made those statements. It seems to me that either way, he will have committed an impeachable offense.
