The DOJ has just released it’s findings in the US Attorney firing investigation. For those of you who don’t remember Monica Goodling, she was the DOJ official who testified to Congress that political considerations were made in hiring non-political attorneys in the DOJ.
You may also remember Ms. Goodling from this exchange with our Congressman, Steve Cohen.
I haven’t read the entire 100+ pages, but on page 115, the verdict:
The evidence detailed above demonstrates that Kyle Sampson, Jan Williams, and Monica Goodling each violated Department of Justice policy and federal law by considering political or ideological affiliations in soliciting and evaluating candidates for IJs, which are Schedule A career positions, not political appointments. Further, the evidence demonstrates that their violations were not isolated instances but were systematic in nature.
Thanks for making my day kiddos!
