If Obama and Holder were honest and ethical …


… and if wishes were ponies, the Justice Department would have coughed up information related to the destruction of e-mails on torture a long, long time ago or else John Conyers, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, who asked for the info on March 1, would’ve issued subpoenas and then held some senior Justice officials in contempt and locked their butts up when the information was not forthcoming.

Here in the real world, it falls to the nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington to take the legal action that Justice itself or the Congress should have taken long ago. And, sadly, CREW cannot, itself, lock up recalcitrant Executive Branch stonewallers.

Still, at some point, some judge is going to show less patience than John Conyers, and I wouldn’t want to be working for Eric Holder when that happens.
