The Latest on the Political Purge in the Justice Department

Political Justice in the Bush Administration

Linked below is the first report on emails between the Justice Department and the White House on the politically motivated dismissals of eight U.S. Attroneys. The House Committee is posting them on its website. Here is a breaking news article from the NY Times.

Bush is defending Gonzales, but Congress, Democrats and Republicans are indignant at the episode. Today the Senate voted to nullify the provision secretly added to the Homeland Security Act which permitted the Attorney General to appoint U.S. Attorneys for indefinite terms without approval by the Senate.

Bush just completed a press conference where he said he would decline to make anyone from the White House staff available for testimony under oath before Congressional committee hearings. This is likely to lead to the issuance of subpoenas which will be challenged in court.

I enjoyed this hub very much,..I never liked Bush or agreed with any of his decisions. He was President but sometimes I felt he thought he was God. The comic's were a nice added bonus too.
