How high IS that mudpile?

Oh, dear.

E-mails released this week, including a set issued Thursday night by the Justice Department, appear to contradict the administration's assertion that Mr. Bush's staff had only limited involvement in the firings of eight U.S. attorneys, which Democrats have suggested were a politically motivated purge.

"Every time new information comes out, it proves that the White House was not telling the truth." - Schumer
We already knew that Rove was involved, but it's nice to have email confirmation.

But who leaked the emails?

The ORIGINAL document dump was no doubt done by Rove and company in an attempt to stick the whole thing on Gonzales' chief of staff and deflect attention from THEM.

But somebody ELSE leaked this stuff to make sure that Rove (and by extension Bush) were implicated. "You think I'M taking the fall? You're nuts!"

That means that there is a PILE of mud yet uncovered.

Keep in mind that what they are now known to have done is unethical, tawdry and rotten - but not actually illegal.

And you don't start trying to blame your comrades unless you have something REALLY serious to hide. Unless you're trying to stay out of jail.

The White House fired attorneys for NOT behaving in a partisan fashion. For having the temerity to investigate Republicans. And Gonzales lied to Congress about the reasons and the White house involvement.

But what were they investigating, specifically, that caused them to be fired?

Were they getting too close to something VERY damning - so damning that the White House did something unprecedented to stop it?

Looks that way.

"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall."

Maybe Bush should occasionally READ that Bible he claims to believe in.
