The Real Reason Why Monica Goodling was Going to Take the Fifth?

According to this story in the Washington Post, Monica Goodling, former aide to Attorney General Gonzales is being investigated by the Justice Department for improperly considering the political affiliations of attorneys applying for jobs at that Department.

If you remember, earlier this year Goodling's attorney wrote to both Senate and House Committees and told them that his client wasn't going to testify because of her concern that she would incriminate herself. At the time he made it appear that her concerns centered on the make-up of the Committees. He argued in his letter that he believed that Democrats, especially Sen. Schumer from NY, had already prejudged his client.

Now, however, we find out that his client may have violated Federal law. That makes his concerns over his client's testimony much more understandable. It may have had nothing to do with any alleged "prejudging" by Schumer and much more to do with the fact that Goodling was already a target of an internal investigation. We wonder if Regent University Law School is still proud of this particular alumnus?

She is going to jail anyway, plain an simple. Let the truth be known and the familiar smirks of this administration fall to a sad frown behind bars of real justice and karma alike.
