So about all those U.S. Attorneys who were fired

Ya just know this is gonna get worse, much worse. Read what Kevin Drum has to say.
The list of prosecutors was assembled last fall, based largely on complaints from members of Congress, law enforcement officials and career Justice Department lawyers, administration officials said.

My guess is that they've decided this is their only remaining chance of escaping from this scandal with their hides intact. After all, the evidence suggests that the U.S. Attorneys in question were actually fired for partisan reasons: either being too tough on corrupt Republicans or not tough enough on corrupt Democrats. With the vultures circling and stonewalling no longer a viable strategy, the only option left was to confess to some lesser misdemeanor and hope that the press would buy it.

They're following the same pattern they always follow. Denial if possible. Lie about why they did something. That would be blaming others in this case. Admit a little bit more about what they did. And eventually they're completely exposed. They never learn.

Of course, why should they learn? There are never any real consequences. And they never get at all embarrassed about being caught.
