This is what the oligarchs have always feared.

This is why they're been shredding frantically ever since the 2006 Revolution:
(commercial shredding company outside Cheney's Naval Observatory residence in late Nov 2006).

Just in case Junior thinks that blanket pardons for war crimes will let anybody forget the past "in the spirit of bi-partisanship":

Obama Plans Probe Of Bush Torture Whether Or Not Officials Are Pardoned
WASHINGTON -- With growing talk in Washington that President Bush may be considering an unprecedented "blanket pardon" for people involved in his administration's brutal interrogation policies, advisors to Barack Obama are pressing ahead with plans for a nonpartisan commission to investigate alleged abuses under Bush.

The Obama plan, first revealed by Salon in August, would emphasize fact-finding investigation over prosecution. It is gaining currency in Washington as Obama advisors begin to coordinate with Democrats in Congress on the proposal. The plan would not rule out future prosecutions, but would delay a decision on that matter until all essential facts can be unearthed.
They did this in post-apartheid South Africa, as well: the Truth & Justice commissions, run by the saintly Bishop Desmond Tutu, emphasized not prosecution or vengeance, but simple truth: the recognition that the only way that nation could ever possibly heal from the psychotic brutality of the apartheid years was for everyone involved--both victims and criminals--to simply acknowledge the truth of what had been done.

War crimes, baby. You monsters should be terrified, because this community organizer (that one's for you, Governor), is going to turn over all your rocks--pardons be damned.
