Who's in Control at the DoJ?

The Abramoff plea agreement only talks about "Representitive #1" and "Staffer A." I'm hoping that this means his lawyer managed to have him take the hit on only one of the alleged many fraudulent acts he has committed, and will start naming names forthwith and post-haste.

What I'm hoping this doesn't mean is that the political movers in the Department of Justice have managed to limit the scope of the investigation so as to only corral a relatively small player (Rep. Bob Ney) in the power deals that are going on in DC right now.

I'm also curious to see how much of a deal the wingnut bloggers will make when the first Democrat is implicated in this fiasco.

As for me, I don't care if the pocket-liners are Democratic or Republican. Let's shine a light on them and get them out of there.

I totally agree. We don't need anyone in the congress or senate willing to prostitute themselves and sell influence.
I want them all rousted. But BP brings up a good point about how deep they are going to examine it. DeLay is also being checked out in regards to the guys who bribed Duke Cunningham. DeLay seems to have been willing to accept money from just about anybody.
Also, check out an interesting story on The RAW Story site.;

It details how Scanlon's jilted fiancée blew the whistle on him to the FBI. Hell hath no fury like a Republican babe who's been given the shaft by a sleezy Republican male.

Yes, as for limiting scopes in investigation - we've heard NOTHING in the media of the arab translater who blew the whistle a year after 9/11 and said Bush, Rice and all when they said they had no specific warning of the attack is an OUTRAGEOUS LIE. This isn't a pundit - this is someone working in the intelligence community FOR the white house, but after she comes forward crony Ashcroft slapped a rarely used antiquated gag order on her for national security issues - and she's unable to talk about the fact that the white house had info of the attack pre 9/11 and sat on it. This is an intelligence crisis.
