A senior Justice Department aide refused yesterday to
submit to a private interview with a House committee investigating the firings
of eight U.S. attorneys.
Her lawyers accused Democrats of behaving like the notorious Sen. Joseph McCarthy to intimidate her.
Lawyers for Monica Goodling, who has said she would assert her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination to avoid appearing at congressional hearings, told the House Judiciary Committee she would neither testify publicly nor submit to private questioning about the firings.

Karl Rove Kountdown
The press can‘t do it itself, when it comes to rooting out wrongdoing. So now
the Democratic committee chairmen can haul these people up on Capitol Hill, and
some of Karl Rove‘s former aides are not going to have any executive privilege
So you‘re going to see a lot more testimony in the weeks to come. And I think Rove, over the course of this year, is going to be in deep doo-doo on a variety of issues. We don‘t know which one will do him in, but I wouldn‘t be surprised if he‘s not working in the White House by the end of the year.
"Police in Connecticut arrested a man for speeding who identified himself as Vice President Dick Cheney. They took the guy to the hospital. Obviously, this guy has mental problems. I mean, these days, what sane person would try to pass themselves off as Dick Cheney?" --Jay Leno

"Keith Richards, from the Rolling Stones, released a bombshell today. He told a British magazine that he snorted his father. He said after his father was cremated, he couldn't resist grinding his ashes up with cocaine and snorting them. Stars -- they're just like us ya know?" - Jimmy Kimmel
