    Frankly, I don't care to make a case. I'll let the special prosecutor make a decision as to whether there was any criminal wrongdoing. This woman has a very good reputation. I'm just happy the Justice Department chose to investigate this. I'll accept whatever Dannehy concludes.

    Hey, they read a story here and there about the trial and they know enough to declare a wrongful finding. I just don't get that mentality.
    Indeed what I love more is all the people complaining about Clinton who was found not guilty and still claim he's a felon while Scooter Libby who was actually guilty and they say he isn't.

    The DOJ did violate the hatch act in their hiring practices. The inspector general found that in his investigation. The key being here that the justice department was politicized. That's the problem.

    Also you have the report congress did with what they could from the investigation:

    Personally, for me, I find DOJ's report more credible. One, it's far more detailed. Two, it was created by George Bush's DOJ. With Congress, one cannot help but see a more partisan perspective.

    What Goodling and Sampson did was just despicable. Have they lost their law licenses?

    Why is this a story?

    Federal prosecutors are appointed by the administration and serve at the presidents leisure. They can be fired by the president at any time, for any reason.

    You Bush bashers on the left, just won't let things go... and it's pathetic.

    Is there documentation about this? I'd love to read it. Not saying you're wrong, only that I haven't heard about any WMDs being found.
    We did find WMD in Iraq, but we did not "stock piles" of WMD like the intelligence reports indicated that they had.

    If folks are going to argue the attorney firings as a criminal matter, there needs to be a specific statute alleged to have been violated. Crimes are specific things, and they violate specific laws.

    What specific laws do you claim the attorney firings violated?
    Do you have me on ignore or something? See six posts above yours.

    Wait. You say the report by Bush's DOJ investigating itself would not be partisan? This is like letting Colonel Sanders watch over your chicken coup while you're away. The DOJ was obliterated under Gonzales' reign. The civil rights division was watered down and understaffed and was left in complete disarray. I'd be more likely to posit that the DOJ investigation of the DOJ is more likely to be biased and partisan than the congressional report.
