This is from career lawyer at the Department of Justice, “civil appellate attorney with the Department of Justice since 1981”, in an op-ed for the Denver Post. (Has this guy resigned yet?)
As a longtime attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice, I can honestly say that I have never been as ashamed of the department and government that I serve as I am at this time.
The public record now plainly demonstrates that both the DOJ and the government as a whole have been thoroughly politicized in a manner that is inappropriate, unethical and indeed unlawful. The unconscionable commutation of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby’s sentence, the misuse of warrantless investigative powers under the Patriot Act and the deplorable treatment of U.S. attorneys all point to an unmistakable pattern of abuse.
It goes on. Is impeachment — of Gonzales, at the very least — really out of the question? John Kerry (eg.) wouldn’t answer that question when we talked to him. It seems like the least Congress ought to be talking about. Currently, there’s no accountability for any of these clowns.
