From: Dems Wants Probe of Gonzales for Perjury.

Senate Democrats called Thursday for a special counsel to investigate whether Attorney General Alberto Gonzales perjured himself regarding the firings of U.S. attorneys and administration dissent over President Bush’s domestic surveillance program.

"It has become apparent that the attorney general has provided at a minimum half-truths and misleading statements," four members of the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote in a letter to Solictor General Paul Clement.

They asked Clement to immediately appoint an indepedent counsel from outside the Justice Department to determine whether Gonzales "may have misled Congress or perjured himself in testimony before Congress."

"We do not make this request lightly," wrote Sens. Charles E. Schumer of New York, Dianne Feinstein of California, Russ Feingold of Wisconsin and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island.

A draft copy of the letter was obtained by The Associated Press shortly before a news conference planned by the senators.

Neither Gonzales nor the Justice Department had immediate comment about the letter. A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said he supports the request.

The Democratic testicles are beginning to descend, folks… it took a while, but before you know it, they’re be real adults!

Bush also fired all of the attorneys when he took office. That’s the president’s prerogative. But this is the first time in memory that any have been fired for political reasons.
Technically, the firings weren’t illegal. What’s being investigated now is the cover up.
If they were doing the right thing, why cover it up? Honestly, all they had to say was, “We fired them because they wouldn’t prosecute enough Democrats,” and no one could do anything. Instead, they lied about the reasons.

Pro Left Insult Obama Every Chance They Get: Case Study #2: Huffington, Michael Moore

If you want to quibble with President Obama’s State of the Union address last night, feel free. This is a free country, after all, even if the right wing would like for everyone to be less free. But the speech was masterful for two reasons. First, it laid out a …
