« One Year Later: No Comment from Chief Justice Roberts on his Health | Main | Now Lawyers Are LEED Accredited »

July 30, 2008



Mr. Fine says, "Even though the judges, who were handpicked in most cases by the White House, weren’t required to compete with other qualified candidates, Fine suggested there was little anyone could do now."

While admitting the "most" judges were "handpicked" by the White House, is the DOJ saying that the potential crimes of the members of the White House (Karl Rove, Harriet Miers, Andy Card and Josh Bolton) who participated in those crimes cannot be held accountable for their part for some ex post facto position taken up by Fred Fielding?

I'd like to hear some legal response to the question. There's also the fact that President Bush has claimed absolute executive powers. My research tells me that there is no such legal definition. What say you?
