Here is the story that Alberto Gonzales’ liaison to the White House, Monica GOODling, is BAD. She announced today that she will be evoking her 5th amendment right to not incriminate herself during the upcoming Senate hearings. For translation, this means that she did something that could send her to jail and now she is refusing to tell us what she did.
The real question here is, Is this serendipity or was it planned to leave the fifth amendment intact specifically for a day like this? After years of trouncing on American citizens’ civil liberties you would think this discussion would have come up. Then again, given this administration’s track record nothing is certain.
