A Call for Patterico Readers to Pore Through the Newly Released E-Mails

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:00 am



The newly released e-mails on the U.S. Attorney firings are here. TPM Muckraker is enlisting its readers to pore through them. But you know that the people who read that blog won’t pick out the parts that aid the Administration’s case.

That’s where you come in. I am enlisting the Great Patterico Army — all few dozen of you — to look through these and tell us what the media is going to leave out.

It’s not about defending the Administration. It’s about keeping the other side (Democrats and Big Media, but I repeat myself) honest. Or some reasonable facsimile thereof.

  1. This link shows the game plan was to coordinate notice that the US Attorneys (USAs) would be let go with contact to Senators of the home state for assistance in easing out the old USAs and naming the new USAs. The first memos suggest the process was under the authority/direction of Harriet Miers, and it’s unclear if Bush was told the details.

    The big sticking point in the immediate reactions from the USAs seems to be that a few of them were living paycheck to paycheck and/or were worried about getting new positions in a short time period. A few of the memos suggest the Bush people were sympathetic to these concerns and willing to grant extensions if needed.

    As you know, I’m supposed to be working on another topic and I’m not up to speed on this subject. Sorry if this is too general.
