Wish-I’d-said-that Dep’t

Commenter J. Grant, on the fight between the FBI and DoJ on the one hand and the House Republicans and the White House on the other concerning the Jefferson raid:

I’d be careful about picking sides too early in this one. It looks to me like it’s shaping up to be a monumental struggle between bad and evil.

  1. If Justice can raid Legislative (with a warrant), does this set a precident that one branch can raid another if they have the paperwork in order? How about Legislative raiding Executive to get some of those documents the investigative committees have been asking for?

  2. I do very much like the idea of the Capitol Police raiding Cheney's office for the energy task force documents. They can do that, can't they?
