Rove's U.S. Attorneys: Out of Control

The fallout from the reversal of the bogus Stevens political prosecution is growing.

Today, the Associated Press reports that the fallout is "far from over....Within the department [of Justice], the Stevens case could have far-ranging implications. The prosecution team, including the top two officials in the public integrity section, faces an internal investigation."

The news story has a great observation: "Joseph diGenova, a former federal prosecutor, said federal prosecutors suffer from 'a lack of supervision....I'm a great fan of prosecutors, but the department and the U.S. attorneys offices in my opinion have been out of control,' diGenova said."
