FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

NEW BROOM CO
ALITION ASKS PATRICK FITZGERALD TO REOPEN THE PLAME CASE FOLLOWING NEW ALLEGATIONS THAT BUSH AND CHENEY WERE INVOLVED

A national coalition of pro-impeachment candidates for the 2009 US
Congress is asking US Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitgerald to reopen his
 investigations of President George W. Bush, Vice President Richard Cheney, former Bush chief of staff
Andrew Card, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.  We are responding to allegations  by former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan that President Bush was directly involved in the outing of CIA officer Valerie Plame.  McClellan  says in his forthcoming book, "What Happened" that he " unknowingly passed  along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the Vice President, the President's chief of staff, and the President himself."

 The congressional hopefuls in the New Broom Coalition have already begun local campaigns to sweep from Congress those incumbents who refuse to hold the Bush administration accountable by  impeachment.  Bush and Cheney need to be held accountable for the lies told to sell the
Iraq war and occupation, and to out Ms. Plame. 

 Ms. Plame was a CIA agent assigned to tracking nuclear
 weapons development, when her undercover identity was revealed by
 administration leaks to journ
alist Robert Novak and others. US Special
 Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald investigated the case for almost a year
 before winning a conviction against Cheney aide "Scooter" Libby, whose
 sentence was commuted by Bush.  Fitzgerald personally  interviewed Bush  for 70 minutes during that investigation, with Bush's criminal attorney present.

 The New Broom Coalition is composed of Democrats, Greens and independent candidates for Congress from across the nation.  (Republicans who accept our mission statement http://sances.info/newbroom/?q=mission are also free to join.)   We are outraged by the crimes of the administration in prosecuting the war and occupations of
Afghanistan and  Iraq, by threats to national security in the case of outing Valerie Plame,  and by the malfeasance of Congress in its repeated failures to uphold and  defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, evinced by these policies and actions.  The Coalition meets regularly on the internet to discuss issues, policies, and strategies to achieve its goals.


 The Coalition's call to Special Prosecutor Fitzpatrick is our first joint
 public statement on its intentions to try to return the nation to sane
 foreign policy, constitutional government based on the rule of law.
 We believe that further investigation of Scott McClellan's statements and beliefs will provide a legal basis for prosecution of the Bush
administration for threatening the national defense by exposing its undercover CIA agents.  Some have called it a treasonous offense.
