Conyers: Justice Stonewalling on U.S. Attorney Report

The Justice Department has “refused to cooperate” with a congressional analysis of whether the administration’s recent firing of U.S. attorneys is unprecedented, according to House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-MI).

Conyers and Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) requested the analysis from the Congressional Research Service to see whether prior administrations had done anything like fire seven United States attorneys abruptly and without stated justification as the administration did in December.

But because “the Administration has refused to cooperate with CRS in their examination,” Conyers office says in a press release, the CRS analysis is incomplete. Nevertheless, CRS issued an interim analysis to Conyers and Sanchez, which you can read here.

In the report, the analyst writes that despite contacting the DoJ for information needed to perform his study a month ago, he’s still waiting

HL’s Take
Bush is firing any US attorneys that he thinks might possibly prosecute him and Cheney of crimes in the future, and replacing them with some of his freinds and lackeys. Bush is doing everything he can to prevent anyone from trying to get to him once he is out of office including a provision in the patriot act that says he can’t be prosecuted of war crimes. Conyers and Henry Waxman are ih charge of investigating Bush, they need to make sure they are able to do thier jobs and make Bush and Cheney pay for thier war, and other types of crime against humanity.
