    "We simply do not understand why
    anyone who is prepared to tell the truth
    would object to an oath and a record of
    what is said...."

    letter from House Judiciary Committee to Robert Luskin,
    Karl Rove's Attorney

Break-ins plague targets of US Attorneys
by Larisa Alexandrovna, Muriel Kane and Lindsay Beyerstein for TheRawStory

In two states where US attorneys are already under fire for serious
allegations of political prosecutions, seven people associated with
three federal cases have experienced 10 suspicious incidents
including break-ins and arson.

These crimes raise serious questions about possible use of deliberate
intimidation tactics not only because of who the victims are and the
already wide criticism of the prosecutions to begin with, but also
because of the suspicious nature of each incident individually as well
as the pattern collectively. Typically burglars do not break-into an
office or private residence only to rummage through documents, for
example, as is the case with most of the burglaries in these two
federal cases.

Siegelman and the GOP's "Umbrella of
Protection"
by Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

....
First, Siegelman talks about what he calls the "umbrella of
protection" that seemingly allows Republican prosecutors, judges, and
political operatives to violate the law without fear of being held
accountable.

This is a critical point. It's this umbrella of protection that allows Alice
Martin, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, to lie under
oath in an employment-related case and get away with it. With the
Bush Justice Department providing an umbrella of protection, Martin
knew she could get away with it.
