We'll be stopping by tomorrow miss Borden. No need to worry about the mess until then.
The [Justice] department notified Gonzales about 8:30 p.m. Monday that it was launching an investigation but said he could wait until the next morning to notify staff and direct them to preserve relevant material, McClellan said.
Not that they haven't already had nearly three months to get their records straight, but, really, since when does the Justice Department tell a focus of an investigation that they its quite all right if they don't immediately put the clamp down on potential evidence? I can see there being a few hours delay in notifying the target of the investigation. But specifically giving the target a heads up?
