122 House Members, Sign on to 'Downing Street' Letter to Bush!

Conyers to Deliver it -- Along with 553,996 Citizen Signatures -- to White House Later Today!

A total of 122 members of Congress, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), have now signed on to Rep. John Conyers' (D-MI) letter to George W. Bush requesting a response to several questions in relation to the Downing Street Minutes.

The original letter, sent several weeks ago by the Ranking Minority Member of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee along with 88 congressional Democrats, was recently recirculated after several more members requested signing on. The original letter has so far gone unresponded to.

A total of 553,996 signatures by citizens have been collected for the letter by Conyers' and MoveOn.org over the past two weeks, and those will be delivered today to the White House shortly after today's scheduled hearings on the Downing Street matter.

That hearing is scheduled for 2:30pm ET today, to be followed by a rally in front of the White House and the delivery of the letter by Conyers and several others at 5pm ET.

----------------------------------


John Kerry said that he intends to confront Congress with the memo, where is John Kerry? have you seen him? that was supposed be monday one week ago. Four days after a John Kerry no show Sen.Kennedy speaks out on Downing Street Memo.


Jack Straw in the memo states "It seemed clear that Bush had made up his mind to take military action, even if the timing was not yet decided. But the case was thin."

Yet Foreign Secretary Jack Straw had a meeting with Condoleezza Rice on the 17th May, when asked about the downing street memo on US soil his reply was "Which one is that?" and sidestepped the question, the US people were left non the wiser. He would not have been allowed to do that in the UK.
