In the "So what else did you expect?" category of today's news, Atty. Gen. Mukasey announced he would not prosecute anyone for the politicization of his department under its former leadership. While paying lip service to condemning the now-proven practice of hiring only loyal Bushies at the Justice Department, Mukasey told the American Bar Association yesterday,
[N]ot every wrong, or even every violation of the law, is a crime. In this instance, the two joint reports found only violations of the civil service laws.
Oh, is that all, Mr. Mukasey? Civil servants charged with defending the laws merely violated their own civil service laws? I see. Nothing to worry about.
I eagerly await Representative Henry Waxman's (D-CA) next move.
