Justice Dept. Talked of Big Resignations If White House Agreed to Return Papers
The Justice Department signaled to the White House this week that the nation's top three law enforcement officials would resign or face firing rather than return documents seized from a Democratic congressman's office in a bribery investigation, according to administration sources familiar with the discussions.Now Taylor Marsh says good for them and I would agree except this just doesn't pass the smell test. Since the spin won't work anymore the administration and the Republicans are just falling back on outrageous BS.
The possibility of resignations by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales; his deputy, Paul J. McNulty; and FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III was communicated to the White House by several Justice officials in tense negotiations over the fate of the materials taken from Rep. William J. Jefferson's office, according to the sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
Steve Soto has a slightly different take on the entire event and he see's Cheney involved.
