The Attorney Firings Controversy Continues

The firing of eight U.S. Attorneys remains in the forefront of the news. Some recent articles and commentary include:

Amy Goldstein & Dan Eggen, Washington Post, Prosecutor Posts Go to Bush Insiders: Less Preference Shown to Locals, Senators' Choices

Professor Michael Seigel (Florida) writes an op-ed in the Orlando Sentinal that advocates against allowing executive privilege here.  He states, "Congress has the constitutional authority to investigate executive wrongdoing, and the possibility of criminal wrongdoing in the U.S. attorney firings is real."

And President Bush continues to support Attorney General Gonzales (See Wall Street Jrl here).
