Let It Slide

I said earlier that it wouldn't surprise me if, post Bush, there was a concerted push by the usual suspects to halt any and all investigations into the Bush administration because of the desire to "put all that ugliness behind us". I offer the following as evidence of what I am talking about:

TPMmuckraker | U.S. Attorneys Investigation Waits on House Leadership: "More than two months after the House Judiciary Committee passed contempt resolutions against White House chief of staff Josh Bolten and former counsel Harriet Miers for ignoring committee subpoenas, it's still unclear when, or if, Democrats will hold a vote on the full floor.

The leadership has indefinitely delayed taking up the issue. House Democratic Caucus Chairman Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) told The Politico last month, “I don’t think anything is going to happen on that for a while,” and couldn't offer a range. Three weeks later, that hasn't changed."

Hey! Alberto Gonzalez is gone! Nothing left to do here. Why not just let it go and get on with the important business?
