Do you think they'll do anything other than stonewall? I don't
Posted by Jill | 6:40 AM
I realize the news that Karl Rove and Harriet Miers are going to testify about the Bush Administration's politicized firing of U.S. attorneys unwilling to trump up charges of "voter fraud" is supposed to be a Very Big Deal, especially when both have been allowed to ignore Congressional subpoenas with absolutely no fear of consequences in the past. But you'll have to forgive me if my response to this is a very big yawn, because I suspect that this Momentous Event™ is going to insist of a lot of stonewalling and/or outright lying on the part of Rove and Miers and an equal amount of gasbaggery from members of the House Judiciary Committee.

Here's why I think it's all so much grandstanding:
Lawmakers will not ask Rove or Miers about privileged conversations they had with members of the Bush White House legal team, and they will not be able to see "four pages of particularly sensitive privileged material" to be described by a Bush representative, the agreement said.


So forgive me if I don't jump up and down and scream "Justice DOES triumph!" at all this. Because until Karl Rove is led off to jail, it's all bullshit.

Finally we agree. It's all political theater, nothing more.

Yep, my feelings exactly. BFD anymore. Under oath? What does that mean to these people? Nothing. No one faces any damn consequence of their actions.

A big "whatever" from me.
