122 House members sign on to Conyers DSM letter
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.
As well, The BRAD BLOG has learned that 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.
The hearings will be on CSPAN3.
