Not like we didn't suspect it

But, as Josh Marshall writes today, we've got a pretty good idea now that it was Bush himself who put the kibosh on U.S. attorney David Iglesias. In response to Senator Domenici's frustration that Iglesias would not "play ball" in getting Democrats indicted prior to the November elections. Karl Rove appears to have been the conduit. These facts come from a report, cited in Marshall's post, published in a New Mexico paper today.

A reasonable interpretation of the facts supports the conclusion that improper partisan political considerations interfered with the independent administration of justice. Courtesy of George W. Bush himself.
