You are sadly mistaken if you think that decisions to go after sitting Members of Congress are not reviewed at the very highest levels . . .
You are probably correct about that. This is reminiscent of the Bush/Gonadless decision to let the Bergler dog pee on their leg. It was Clintonistas in the Justice Dept. that made the decision not to allow more serious charges into the mix. They didn’t give away anything that they didn’t have to, and W & Alberto let it ride. They’re all dogs. The Weldons, Coburns, Tancredos and Hunters can be counted on one hand with a thumb left over.
