The US Attorney Scandal & Abramoff

-- by Dave Johnson

The US Attorney scandal is not about miscommunication of the reasons for the firings. This is what the US Attorney scandal is about:

Bush fired US Attorneys:
1) To block investigations into Republican corruption.
2) For refusing to launch sham investigations of Democrats who were innocent of any and all accusations.

For example, the prosecutor who indicted Duke Cunningham was fired.

And before THIS round of firings, there was this: Bush picks Abramoff prosecutor for federal judgeship / Democrats wonder about the timing of president's move,

..Hillman's departure from the Justice Department creates a vacancy at the top of the Abramoff investigation only three weeks after Abramoff, once one of the city's most powerful Republican lobbyists and a major fund-raiser for Bush, announced his guilty plea and agreed to testify against others, possibly including members of Congress.
And how many indictments of others, based on Abramoff's testimony, followed the exit of this prosecutor?

There are serious Republican corruption scandals out there, but now there are no US Attorneys who will investigate them. And here's the thing - if things do not change, in the months before the 2008 elections the public will be hearing about lots of Democrats being indicted for corruption.

Watch your backs!

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security...

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Time to Declare Independence!

*...if things do not change, in the months before the 2008 elections the public will be hearing about lots of Democrats being indicted for corruption.*

Not "indicted" as that would leave a paper trail and witnesses, but "accusations made", "questions raised" and "investigations begun" will be leaked to the press.
