Re: New Conyers Report on the Imperial Bush Presidency (link)

A reader writes in:

God Bless John Conyers!!!

Where are those in power who would take a stand and do the Right Thing, in their nation’s hour of need? Unfortunately, it’s become our lawmaker’s political feeding time, turning a deaf ear and a blind eye in their hour of greed.

Another (one of several who seem to think WMD’s were found in Iraq and an Al Qaeda connection to Saddam proved) writes:

Nice to see you guys aren’t just blindly following Democrat talking points for stories…. Oh wait, you just ran your story based on Conyer’s conspiracy theories.

If you had an interest in finding the truth about Saddam’s al Qaeda links maybe you should just ask the captured al Qaeda members and Baathists…

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
