ABC has the story. I wonder if he has any parting words about Monica.
Update: here are posts from WSJ law blog, ThinkProgress, and emptywheel at TNH. Marcy points out that the timing is kinda suspicious, in that James Comey (who was Deputy Attorney General before McNulty) is giving testimony tuesday before the SJC. And talkingpointsmemo has this choice line which breaks down McNulty’s position w/r/t the rest of the DOJ:
McNulty: You guys are crooks; Gonzales: Yeah, whatever, but no one would know if you’d kept your mouth shut.
Yeah, that’s got to hurt. Just about everyone who reported to Gonzales has already resigned. Gonzales himself has obviously and publicly failed to do even a half-assed job of pretending that he was doing his job. At this point he is probably at risk of doing jail time for lying to Congress. So, who’s next? Will Gonzales quit under his own power, or will the Congress be forced to impeach him? From CNN:
“Another resignation won’t make the unanswered questions about the fired U.S. attorneys disappear,” Rep. Rahm Emanuel, the chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said Monday.
“For months, Democrats have been seeking straight answers about the prosecutor purge,” Emanuel said. “Democrats will continue our aggressive investigation into this serious matter. Resignations are no substitute for the truth.”
The truth is starting to look more and more like it will require a RICO prosecution. That 10 year statute of limitations is a long time.
