Monica Goodling's testimony

Watching parts of Ms. Goodling's testimony today, my feeling was that she was forthright and candid. Perhaps this is because she had immunity, while others who testified earlier did not.

My other feeling was that Congress are the wrong people to be doing this type of investigation. Everybody wants to score their political points, and that tends to get in the way of the search for the truth.

For instance, after months of Congressional investigations, we still don't know who put together the list of attorneys to be asked to resign, and why each name was added to the list. While primary responsibility for our continuing ignorance lies squarely on the Justice department, I can't help but feel that a professional presecutor would have gotten to the truth by now.
