Justice Is Coming And It Does Not Serve At The Pleasure Of The President!!

Raw Story

"United States Attorneys may serve at the pleasure of the president, but justice does not serve at the pleasure of the president, or any president," Senator Patrick Leahy said.

Leahy was followed by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY), who assailed the Bush administration for downplaying the significance of the events.

"Just 7 weeks ago, the Department of Justice insisted we were making a big deal out of nothing," he said, and then noted the resignations of Sampson, other officials, as well as the decision by another Justice official, Monica Goodling, to plead her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

He then noted that White House aide Karl Rove and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales had been directly implicated in the firing of the attorneys, and charged the Bush administration with dissembling.

"The list of contradictions, contortions, and distortions grows longer everyday," he warned.

Schumer insisted that today's hearing was not a partisan exercise.

"The purpose is not gotcha. The purpose is, as they said in Dragnet, 'just the facts ma'am.'"

I know you do, S-Q. that's why I posted the link to you. I found JS's humour a bit difficult to understand at first, because I'm not as familiar with the American political scene as you are, but I'm beginning to understand it better, now. We get the Daily Show here on cable TV in the UK and I've started to watch it at half 8 in the evening every day.
