Anyone surprised by this?
Justice Department documents released tonight include new emails linking Karl Rove’s top aides — former White House political director Sara Taylor, who resigned last month, and her deputy Scott Jennings — to the U.S. attorney scandal. Congressional subpoenas have been authorized, but not approved, for both Taylor and Jennings.
…Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said in a statement tonight: “These documents, which should have been released by the Department long ago, provide further evidence that White House officials like former Political Director Sara Taylor were deeply involved in the mass firings of well-performing prosecutors. The Department of Justice should not be reduced to a political arm of the White House. We need an end to the White House’s stonewalling of our investigations so we can learn the truth.”
The Democrats need to pass legislation instituting a new criminal law called “General Badness for the Country,” and, as soon as it’s law, frogmarch Rove out of the White House and throw his ass in the clink for the rest of his stinking days.
