    Are you sure you don't have Starr and Clinton mixed up with Fitzgerald and Scooter Libby??

(For the record, I don't care what he did with Lewinsky since they are both adults and it did not affect his job performance.)

    I do not doubt the same thing will happen to Obama if the Republicans get in charge of either the house or the senate.
    Well, other than the fact that Clinton was a scumbag - just ask his wife - he did lie to federal investigators and that is impeachable. No question that it was a witchhunt, though. Pretty disgusting all around.

    But to this topic...someone wrote, perhaps the article:
    Senate Republicans have demanded details of the lawyers' past work and Liz Cheney’s group “Keep America Safe” has questioned their “values." A drumbeat of Republican criticism forced the Justice Department reluctantly to identify seven of them last week. But the harshness of the criticism – Keep America Safe labeled a group of them the “Al Qaeda Seven” — has provoked a backlash from across the legal establishment.
    So do I read this correctly that some Republicans AND Liz Cheney's group are questioning Obama lawyers? And Republican lawyers are objecting? The first could be viewed as politics as usual, but the second part is interesting. I guess they want to preempt the idea that a lawyer for a scumbag can't serve in any capacity in the government.

    Well, it's difficult if not stupid to question values. Lawyers have a job to do and they do it. If they have to defend a scumbag they do so. If the lawyer defending the scumbag finds evidence that the man did what he is accused of, that lawyer can and should provide that evidence to the prosecution. Lawyers VALUES? I wasn't aware lawyers - prosecutors or defense attorneys had them in the first place. I mean, maybe corporate lawyers or contract lawyers... but criminal attorney's?

    I would question their ideology and political affiliation before values. If Liz Cheney wants to make an arguement that they're sympathizers and apologists - then show the evidence and let's discuss it.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I"m not really sure why we'd want defense attorneys who represented terrorists working as prosecutors for the Dept. of Justice. That makes my eyebrows go up, frankly.

    I'll be honest...I'm not a fan of defense attorneys. They have their role. It's a necessary role. However, some of the people they represent are completely despicable, and I'm kind of shocked at the morality of the people who choose to be associated with those types.

    yes, it's a necessary role. let's remember that everyone who goes on trial isn't guilty. there's nothing immoral about these people doing their jobs.

    Why? Because she refused to let the Obama administration keep their lawyer list anonymous?

    Yeah! How horrible for her to make sure the lawyers' names are actually known!
