Political Forecast: Thank you, Senator Grassley
Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
There is a lot of intrigue and there are a lot of details surround the dismissal of eight US Attorneys by the Justice Department and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. And it seems like there is a lot of detail missing as well, which is what led to the DOJ releasing thousands of pages of documents and emails — and also led to House and Senate Committees to issue subpoenas to White House staff about the decision to fire the attorneys. On the Senate Judiciary Committee, only one Republican Senator voted in favor of issuing the subpoenas: Iowa's own Chuck Grassley. ... Whatever differences I have with Sen. Grassley (and there are many), I do sincerely thank him for his responsible vote in this endeavor.
