Commentary: The Firings - Is it a Crime?
Discussed here, here, here, here, and here, as well as prior to these posts are entries regarding the "firing" of 8 US Attorneys. But a must read is Adam Cohen's editorial observation in the New York Times here. He provides the issue-spotting exam for what charges might a special prosecutor look at based upon the possible conduct being described.
My exam, however, would go one step further. It would ask, what considerations might a special prosecutor have for not bringing any of these charges.
I can say I do agree on one thing - someone independent needs to be considering the allegations and seeing if there is any merit to all of this.
