Rogue Special Prosecutor
"This time it was a pro-war Republican caught in the snare,
which is why many liberals are cheering. But what goes
around comes around, and I wonder if my friends would
feel the same way if this technique were used to indict,
convict and imprison one of our friends. As it might have
been, during the Clinton years."
"The whole phenomenon of special prosecutors turns the
usual rules of investigating on their head. Instead of
focusing on crimes, special prosecutors tend to focus
on people themselves. Dig deep enough, ask enough
questions, particularly under oath, and only those most
experienced with the criminal justice system are likely
to escape unscathed. Hardened criminals know enough
to shut up."
