(SFChronicle)Karl Rove knew about firings, e-mails show Justice pushed to keep ‘loyal Bushies’ as U.S. prosecutors

(AP) Fired U.S. attorneys ranked above peers

(Reuters) Rove offered for unsworn testimony

(AP) Bush aides facing subpoenas over firings

(AP) Bush threatens to veto Democrats’ bills

Would you trust these guys without a sworn oath? Meaning they can lie without perjuring themselves? Hell, I wouldn’t trust them WITH an oath!

BTW, this made me think of a Charles Addams cartoon–one of my favorite cartoonists of all time.

(WashPost/Reuters) US could prosecute reporters for leaks: Gonzales

(WashPost/AP) House Leaders Question FBI Search

Once again, this administration makes a judgement call and it calls for secrecy. Even if the government is acting in an illegal fashion, it is even MORE unlawful to blow the whistle on it or even be the recipient of said whistle-blowing information, according to the man who helped justify our use of torture. In a further demonstration that the principle of the separation of powers is considered null and void, a congressman’s office was searched by order of our own little Heinrich Himmler. Now, I will admit it looks bad for Jefferson (and The Party will undoubtedly use this incident to make the Democrats look as bad as the Republicans), but there is a principle at stake here. Does the executive branch trump Congress? And if so, why weren’t searches done of Duke Cunningham’s offices (as Steny Hoyer pointed out)? If Hastert and Boehner are complaining about this, this IS an issue!
