Attorney General Michael Mukasey on Tuesday rejected the idea of criminally prosecuting former Justice Department employees who improperly used political litmus tests in hiring decisions, saying he had already taken strong internal steps in response to a “painful” episode.The Bush Administration thinks that they take oaths to the President. That's unbelievably unAmerican.
If the people tasked with prosecuting criminal acts refuse to do so, a special independent prosecutor may be the only option to retain America as a country ruled by law and not men.
Good god. " Not every violation of the law is a crime." I gotta remember that.
Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Tuesday that the Department of Justice would not pursue criminal charges against former employees implicated in an internal investigation on politicized hiring practices.
“Where there is evidence of criminal wrongdoing, we vigorously investigate it,” Mukasey said in a speech at the American Bar Association. “And where there is enough evidence to charge someone with a crime, we vigorously prosecute. But not every wrong, or even every violation of the law, is a crime.”
