      I'm not aware, however, of the Supreme Court having a role.

      •  SCOTUS only matters if the pres (none)
        asserts executive privilege BEFORE the articles of impeachment are drafted.

        In this case, Bush could probably claim that the constitution was his private property due to executive privilege and hear only token opposition from 3 dissenters on SCOTUS.

        We're screwed.

        War is hell. Execute Order 66.
