Feingold Calls Warrantless Wiretaps an Impeachable Offense

WASHINGTON Although President Bush's authorization of
warrantless wiretaps is likely an impeachable offense, Sen. Russ
Feingold hopes to be a "voice of moderation" in not pushing the
Senate toward that option, the Wisconsin Democrat said Thursday.
I sent an email to Feedback@foxnews.com :
"I request that Fox News retracts this statement and clarifys it. Is this Liza's opinion that the "warrantless wiretaps is likely an impeachable offense"? The statement is not in quotes.
I will await (patiently) for a response. This is exactly how the MSM (and rarely Fox) play the "tell a lie long enough and it becomes the truth" syndrome.
Despite the fact that most (80%) of the people in this country favor the NSA listening to terrorist calls coming into the country, President Bush has stated, (and the attorney generals office has confirmed) that this is an authority granted the President under the War Powers Act.
Powerline has some excellent articles here and here.
