Lies And The Lying Liars That Tell Them

So the Shrub administration forced San Diego US Attorney Carol Lam to resign. Popular opinion is that it's retaliation for taking down former congressman Duke Cunningham, and continuing to follow money to the Republican political donors who bribed him. It's also widely believed that this whole purge also serves to make room for Shrub toadies. The administration insists this isn't true, that Lam was lax in prosecuting illegal immigration crimes in her district.

The Senate looked into the mess this week, and sure enough, that's a lie. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) pulled out a letter from Assistant AG William Moschella dated this past August praising Lam's performance in exactly that category of cases. Why'd that letter come out? It was Moschella offering contradictory testimony.
