U.S. Attorney Resignation Matter, Bring It On

By SOP newswire

"After several hours of testimony by Monica Goodling; more than 6,800 pages and an additional 1,500 pages made available to Congress; two extensive public hearings with the Attorney General; and many hours of interviews and testimony from senior Department of Justice officials, it remains clear that the Attorney General did not ask for the resignation of any individual in order to interfere with or influence a particular prosecution for partisan political gain.

Ms. Goodling’s testimony today about asking political questions on applicants for career positions is troubling.  This matter is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Justice Department's Office of Inspector General and the Office of Professional Responsibility and we cannot comment further."
