Gonzales Aid Refuses to Testify

From the New York Times:

Bush Aide Refuses Private Interview

A senior Justice Department aide refused to submit to a private interview with the House Judiciary Committee, which is investigating the dismissal of eight United States attorneys. The aide, Monica Goodling, on leave from her job as senior counsel to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales, had said she would assert her Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination to avoid testifying in public.

...But there is nothing illegal. Seriously. She is afraid she will incriminate herself with legal truths. They are really scary, those legal truths. I'm afraid of them too.

Did we mention she went to a school taught founded by Pat Robertson designed to promote evangelical values?

In other breaking news, George Bush retaliates against critics of his keeping failing staff members by firing himself.
