So, What SHOULD They Be Asking?
My favorite Gonzales quote thus far comes from his opening statement: "Finally, recognizing my limited involvement in the process, a mistake that I freely acknowledge, I have soberly questioned by prior decisions. I have reviewed the documents available to the Congress." Because, you know, you wouldn't want to review ALL possible documents available, otherwise you might let something slip out that Congress hasn't yet been told. Such as that teensy little whole confidential internal memo delegating hiring and firing responsibilities for career DoJ employees to your young and inexperienced political minions with strong ties to Karl Rove and the WH political shop. Nope, nothing to see here, why do you ask?
So, in light of that, and the fact that I am about to blow a gasket because the questions are so tangential, unfocused and rambling this morning, I'm asking you: what SHOULD the members of Congress be asking? And, even more importantly, why haven't they begun allowing the Judiciary Committee counsel to ask more thorough questions than the members are doing?
Jeebus, I have a headache this morning. How are you guys doing?
PS — If the Committee has evidence that phone calls were made to pressure former USAs and AUSAs from cooperating with the Committee, I suggest a referral be filed for obstruction charges against those persons doing the pressuring. Because that sounds to me an awful lot like an attempt to obstruct the committee's investigation.
