US attorney firings were politically motivated.
The corpulent antichrist is up to his wattley neck in the attorney scandal. But since he never testified under oath about it, we won’t get to enjoy the knowledge that his huge pasty white ass is meeting new friends in prison.
Emails obtained by the House Judiciary Committee reveal that the bloated scumbag and his office were involved in the firing of New Mexico US Attorney David Iglesias, who Republicans had criticized as not aggressively prosecuting voter fraud cases — which would have benefited Republicans. According to the committee, the lying, sneaky fuck and his staff were involved “months earlier than previously known.”
A campaign to oust Iglesias intensified after state GOP officials and Republican members of the congressional delegation apparently concluded that he was not pursuing the cases against Democrats in a way that could help then-Rep. Heather A. Wilson (R) in a tight reelection race in New Mexico, according to interviews and Bush White House e-mails released Tuesday by congressional investigators.
The release notes, “in May and June 2005, Rove aide Scott Jennings sent emails to Tim Griffin (also in Rove’s office) asking ‘what else I can do to move this process forward’ and stressing that ‘I would really like to move forward with getting rid of NM US ATTY.’ In June 2005, Harriet Miers emailed that a ‘decision’ had been made to replace Iglesias. At this time, DOJ gave Iglesias top rankings, so this decision was clearly not just the result of the White House following the Department’s lead as Rove and Miers have maintained.”
"After all the delay and despite all the obfuscation, lies and spin, this basic truth can no longer be denied: Karl Rove and his cohorts at the Bush White House were the driving force behind several of these firings, which were done for improper reasons," House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers said.
An “agitated” Rove pressed Harriet Miers to do something about Iglesias just weeks before Iglesias was placed on the removal list – Karl Rove phoned Harriet Miers during a visit to New Mexico in September 2006 – according to Miers’ testimony, the repulsive jerkoff was “agitated” and told her that Iglesias was “a serious problem and he wanted something done about it.”
The disclosures mark the end of a 2 1/2 -year investigation by the House Judiciary Committee, which sued to gain access to White House documents in a dispute that challenged the Bush administration's claims of executive power.”Improper”? Shit on toast. I’m waiting to hear that it was ilfuckinglegal, for crying out loud. I want to see him frogmarched out to a police car, screaming and blubbering with snot running down his fucking chin. I want to see him piss himself on national/cable TV as he’s hauled off IN CHAINS. I want to see Valerie Plame’s husband pound on that piece of shit’s fat fucking face before cockblocking him in the nads on his way to booking. Oh yes. Oh yes.
House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-Mich..) on Tuesday characterized the role of Bush White House figures in the firing of Iglesias and eight other U.S. attorneys as improper.
"Under the Bush regime, honest and well-performing U.S. attorneys were fired for petty patronage, political horse-trading, and, in the most egregious case of political abuse of the U.S. attorney corps -- that of U.S. attorney Iglesias -- because he refused to use his office to help Republicans win elections," Conyers said.
