"There is no distinctly American criminal class, except Congress." -Mark Twain
In a strange move, both the Rs and the Ds are livid that the FBI raided the congressional offices of Rep. William Jefferson, D-Louisiana, (who may have accepted substantial bribes). House speaker Hastert spoke directly with the president, so, the president steps in an orders the documents sealed as a cooling off period as Congress demands this is a separation of powers issue. Some predict it will go to the SCOTUS.
Aha. So Abu Ghraib, Tom DeLay, and NSA illegal wiretapping aren't enough to merit a proper congressional investigation. But a raid, with a warrant, after the videotaping of a Congressman taking a bribe that leads to uncovering 90 grand in the fucker's freezer? Well, now the shit's hit the fan!
