Gonzales in deep
Gonzales seems to me to be digging himself in deeper. I'm afraid that when you are supposed to be upholding the law it seems a bit disingenuous not to comment on a staffer pleading the fifth. Certainly it is a right that should be upheld. Yet those in the service of the law should be condemned for taking any action that says that they have broken the law. And that is what happens when someone pleads the fifth. If Gonzales has a staffer who pleads the fifth he should be mentioning how he is cleaning house to make sure no one else on his staff has done anything to break the law or thwart justice. That seems to me the hallmark of someone who is responsible and innocent. But nothing is happening along those lines.
