McNalty Resignation Not Shocking

Posted by nytexan on May 14, 2007

Forgive me if I don’t pop the champaign bottle over McNalty resigning, but you had to see it coming. It becomes more obvious everyday that if you speak against the administration or give a hint that you are trying to be forthcoming, you resign.

The Bush administration has had more resignation than any other administration. Interestingly they all seem to be for personal reasons. Gonzales need to resign, but then he does a very good job for George.

McNulty, a former U.S. attorney himself, told the Senate Judiciary Committee in February that the firings were performance-related. That provoked an outcry from the ex-officials, some of whom raised allegations that some of the firings were politically motivated.

McNulty later told the committee that he was not briefed properly before that hearing — and blamed his testimony on former aide Monica Goodling, who invoked her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination rather than discuss the matter with Congress. A federal judge Friday approved a House Judiciary Committee request that she be granted immunity from prosecution, allowing it to compel her testimony.

Goodling and another aide, Kyle Sampson, have resigned in connection with the controversy.

I would think that if one was going to testify, they would be expected to tell the truth. A person having to be briefed or doing their homework tells me their lying. If you’re telling the truth there should never be a need to be briefed or study, you just give an honest answer.

Honesty, a concept lost on this administration.

    I have to admit a certain amount of schadenfreude at watching the Bush administration implode. The whole structure is so rotten at the core it can only stand for so long given a Congress interested in the truth.

    As good as it would be for the country, it is unlikely that Gonzales will resign. his replacement would need to be confirmed by the Senate, and they are in no mood to do anything W. wants. If he tried to pull the old ‘recess appointment’ trick again, impeachment might suddenly be back on the table.

    I like the idea of an impeachment table. Let’s do it.

    Its interesting that Gonzales wasted no time today in pinning the whole firing saga on McNalty. What a piece of crap.

    Oh please let Bush make a recess appointment.
