No McNulty

By the way, my post below listing possible replacements for Gonzales does NOT include Deputy AG Paul McNulty. The Prowler explains why that is a good thing. Meanwhile, designated "fall guy" Kyle Sampson looks like he is no longer ready to be a spearcatcher for McNulty:

"The fact that the White House and Justice Department had been discussing the subject for several years was well-known to a number of other senior officials at the department, including others who were involved in preparing the department's testimony to Congress," according to the statement by Sampson's lawyer, Bradford A. Berenson.

Good. When all this is over, Sampson should end up with his reputation mostly restored, while others at Justice who seem to be skating should end up having their Teflon substantially pierced.
