So, we've been watching Monica Goodling testify this morning. She and her attorney turned over documents that she had been withholding from the committee up until the morning — and we learned that it took negotiations between the committee personnel, Goodling's attorney and the DOJ to get them. No idea what is in there, but the comparison to what we have already seen could be interesting.
Goodling has disclosed that she knows that Rove's office knew quite a bit about the firing plan – and that they signed off on it at the WH. Nothing like the political office having to sign off on everything that goes on in government, eh?
The phrase of the day thus far: "enthusiastic of the priorities." Looking for folks who were loyal to the President — and not to the American public and the rule of law — takes a lot of hard work, I'm sure. Goodling admits to poiticizing hiring decisions of career employees at the DOJ — I'm hoping for a lot more questioning about this.
So, what has caught your ear this morning in the testimony?
