At today’s press briefing, White House spokesman Scott McClellan was asked about the letter Rep. John Conyers sent to the President asking questions about the Downing Street Memo. The letter has been signed by 112 members of Congress and 550,000 concerned citizens.
QUESTION: On another topic, has the president or anyone else from the administration responded to the letter sent last month by Congressman John Conyers and signed by dozens of members of the House of Representatives regarding the Downing Street memo? Has the president or anyone else responded?
MCCLELLAN: Not that I’m aware of.
QUESTION: Why not?
MCCLELLAN: Why not? Because I think that this is an individual who voted against the war in the first place and is simply trying to rehash old debates that have already been addressed.
So remember, if you opposed the war in Iraq don’t bother asking questions. You don’t count anymore.
