Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla. — who has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, and may be a superdelegate for him depending on what happens at the DNC meeting this Saturday — yesterday called upon former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan to testify under oath before the House Judiciary Committee.

“The admissions made by Scott McClellan in his new book are earth-shattering and allege facts to establish that Karl Rove and Scooter Libby – and possibly Vice President Cheney -  conspired to obstruct justice by lying about their role in the Plame Wilson matter and that the Bush Administration deliberately lied to the American people in order to take us to war in Iraq," said Wexler, who has led a campaign to hold impeachment hearings against Cheney.

Wexler said he wants McClellan to tell Congress how the Bush administration "deliberately orchestrated a massive propaganda campaign to sell the war in Iraq to the American people.”
