or, fun with evidentiary transcripts. . .
as the house judiciary committee hearing
wound-down this afternoon, chairman john
conyer’s office released a three-page, re-
dacted transcript of criminal division
department of justice attorney matthew w.
friedrich’s sworn statements. . . they were
mentioned by the chairman, to mr. gonzales,
rather pointedly this morning (video coming
very soon on that), and i think, these are the
first under-oath, written bits-o’-evidence from
any attorney — inside the gonzales depart-
ment of justice, mind you — which directly
assert that karl rove was behind the firing
of david iglesias in new mexico. iglesias
was fired, in large part, for being slow to
bring a politically-expedient, but largely
meritless, “voter fraud” case to
ding a democratic candidate, very near
the november 2006 mid-term elections. . .
thus provoking the ire of sen. pete
domenici, and allegedly,
now — one mister karl rove.
this direct connection between iglesias’
resistance to bringing a bogus case, and
karl rove’s desire to fire him on that
basis, is what’s “new“. note, friedrich,
a DoJ attorney, is now saying this is true,
under penalty of perjury, and disbarment. . .
let’s take a look (page one, above),
at page two, now, shall we?

@ 11:18 p.m. — mcclatchy’s is now carrying its take
on these tid-bits, over its wire-service, btw.]
note that the answer to the monica goodling
question (immediately above) is “no“, below:
so — we know that rep. conyers has karl
rove square in his sights — and we know
chairman conyers is holding, but has not
yet issued, a subpoena with mr. rove’s
name on it, for his personal appearance. . .
it would seem like it is that
time, again, mr. chairman. . .
it is turd-blossom subpoena-in’ time!
oh, yeah. . .!
