    What do you see as a set back?
    I see this as a benefit to the Republicans.
    I encourage the likes of Conyers to immerse themselves in this endeavor.
    Go for it.
    Just do it.

    I think it's a moronic Stalinist move that will backfire.

    Maybe Rove will be the first to fall. He certainly deserves nothing but, the best treatment from the other inmates.

    I wouldn't be surprised to hear he is also questioned about his and Cheney's conspiracy to out a CIA covert spy.

    Hi Hip Horray!

    tick...tock...tick...tock...
    So do you always go around accusing people of crimes you have no proof of? To me that's the real crime.

    How'd those recent charges against Cheney hold up?

    There's plenty of proof against all of them.

    The big question is... Will they have the kahunas to do the right thing?

    Have a great day!

    That's because you don't bother to understand how the system works. You just listen to whatever media talking head feeds you at night.

    Secondly, the Attorney General, all political appointees, such as U.S. Attorneys, serve at the pleasure of the President of the United States.

    It means he can hire and fire em at will. That's why, in the end, this is a NON-ISSUE.

    Hell Clinton dumped every AG from Bush when he took office. Bush got rid of less. Welcome to Washington. I think Bush's mistake is he didn't just fire every last one of Clinton's AG's and replace em all. That gave the Dems a cause to rally their gullible masses to.

    Serving "at the pleasure of the President" is not a blank check that involves firing them to stop investigations on Republican corruption or because they refuse to dug up dirt on Democrats where none exists. He can fire them because the sky is blue, that's fine, but if he fires them in order to stop an investigation then that is obstruction of justice!

    The perverse joke in all this is... these are political appointments. Clinton fired the whole bunch. It is all about nothing but the Democrats producing another Stalinist show trial.

    (PS> You folks are concerned about steriods in sports, but can't get the gumption to look into Fannie and Freddie? How about some real hearings with teeth?)

    As everyone once knew but has tried to forget, Mr. Hubbell was a former partner of Mrs. Clinton at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock who later went to jail for mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also Bill and Hillary Clinton's choice as Associate Attorney General in the Justice Department when Janet Reno, his nominal superior, simultaneously fired all 93 U.S. Attorneys in March 1993. Ms. Reno--or Mr. Hubbell--gave them 10 days to move out of their offices.

    "Change".

    It will be both interesting and fun to watch the Stalinists try to criminalize political decisions and decision makers. That is their definition of "hope".

    "Hope".

    My bet is the Marxist/Stalinists will end up with the egg on their faces.

    And the enemies of the world watch this with amusement, cheering the Stalinists on.

    That is the "Unite" element. Tie their goals to those of America's enemies.

    "Unite".
    Obviously you have no idea about Stalin, communism, socialism, I dare say you don't understand democracy either. If someone commits an act that may be illegal, it's supposed to be looked into. Nixon was wrong, when the president does it, it CAN be illegal.

    zimmer, these arguments have been made already.

    Intestingly, the issue was serious enough for Mukasey to order an independent investigation. Do you want to call his move a "Stalinist show trial"?

    Investigating the Firing of Nine U.S. Attorneys: A federal investigation into the firings of nine U.S. attorneys in 2006 by the Bush administration has determined that the firings were "unsystematic and arbitrary, with little oversight by the attorney general, the deputy attorney general, or any other senior department official." Despite the fact that the Justice Department's inspector general and the Office of Professional Responsibility produced a 358-page report, they conclude that more investigation is needed because key witnesses such as Karl Rove and Harriet Miers refused to be interviewed. The report recommended that Attorney General Michael Mukasey appoint a special counsel to determine any criminality. Mukasey followed through on Monday by naming Nora Dannehy, the acting U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to continue the inquiry.
