This will come as no great shock to most of you, but all the Republican hacks who spent a few months claiming the Gonzalez affair was a “made-up” scandal were, yet again, wrong:
As for her own role in Justice Department hirings and firings, she said, “I do acknowledge that I may have gone too far in asking political questions of applicants for career positions, and I may have taken inappropriate political considerations into account on some occasions, and I regret those mistakes.”
When the hearing got under way, there were suggestions that Ms. Goodling, who is 33, may have acted illegally, rather than just improperly. In any event, the grant of immunity under which she testified protected her from self-incrimination, so long as she told the truth, which she swore to do.
How many of them do you think will acknowledge this error?
BTW- Does anyone have a transcript of the testimony?
