WASHINGTON - Top aides tobroke the law by letting politics influence the hiring of career prosecutors and immigration judges at the Justice Department, says an internal report released Monday.
Gonzales was largely unaware of the hiring decisions by two of his most trusted aides, according to the report by Justice's Office of Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility.
Unless these idiot Congressmen can actually prove that Gonzales ordered his aides to act inappropriately- the democrats need to issue a full retraction and apology for smearing his name and reputation for their own political gain. If the Democrats do not issue a retraction or an apology, they should be charged with the same crimes they are accusing the aides of committing.
Of course- the Democrats will not apologize to Gonzales, in fact, they are still accusing him of lying.
Congressional investigators said they also were considering asking the Justice Department to pursue perjury charges against Goodling, Sampson and possibly Gonzales as a result of their spoken or written congressional testimony during House and Senate investigations last year. Lying to Congress is a crime.
Clearly they still have no evidence that Gonzales had any clue this was going on. There is even less evidence that Bush knew anything about this.
