From William Betz:

The president has the power of the pardon (and commutation) EXCEPT in cases of impeachment. Article 2, section 2 of the Constitution, provides, in part, “[The president] shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” Because Bush pardoned Libby fearing the little worm’s anticipated cooperation in order to avoid prison time, and because that cooperation would have implicated Bush and Cheney, leading directly to their impeachment, it is plain that Bush’s commutation of Libby’s sentence is unconstitutional and itself amounts to an impeachable offense. — WEB

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
