Breaking the Law

Last I checked, lying to Congress was a crime. So this stuff about the fired prosecutors has likely moved from the political CYA to the criminal CYA.

A senior Justice Department official acknowledged yesterday that a top federal prosecutor in Arkansas was removed to make room for a former aide to presidential adviser Karl Rove, but he said that six other U.S. attorneys were fired for "performance-related" issues.

That's where they screwed up.
