The DOJ attorney dismissal fiasco just doesn't seem to go away. And the departure of former U.S. Attorney Inglesias is clearly one that merits closer scrutiny. The Washington Post reports that Inglesias has filed a complaint that his "dismissal amounted to discrimination based on his status as an officer in the Navy Reserve." And the Washington Post also discusses Senator Domenici's connection to Inglesias.
In the meantime, the NYTimes is reporting that Senators want more documents. And they should be asking for more. It is not enough to limit this inquiry to emails of those who left posts as US Attorneys. What perhaps is more frightening is whether any who remain in office had to make any concessions or proceed in a certain way to appease political influences.
