This is my last email before I get on the road to Crawford. This was just sent to me from a person who works closely with home schooling mom's. Mostly conservative and definitely not activists! Even they are pissed about the Libby commutation. Read what this says about IMPEACHMENT. Please. If the POTUS could be protecting himself or his cronies by the pardon, then it is an IMPEACHABLE offense.This must become a national outcry.

The following is from a report written and released by the Judiciary Committee in 1974 in the aftermath of the Watergate crisis.In the [Constitutional] convention George Mason argued that the President might use his pardoning power to "pardon crimes which were advised by himself" or, before indictment or conviction, "to stop inquiry and prevent detection." James Madison responded:
[I]f the President be connected, in any suspicious manner, with any person, and there be grounds [to] believe he will shelter him, the House of Representatives can impeach him; they can remove him if found guilty...
Madison went on to [say] contrary to his position in the Philadelphia convention, that the President could be suspended when suspected, and his powers would devolve on the Vice President, who could likewise be suspended until impeached and convicted, if he were also suspected.
