Study: Bush's U.S. Attorney Firings "Unprecedented"

We are being set up for a major crackdown on dissent!

Study: Bush's U.S. Attorney Firings "Unprecedented" | BuzzFlash:

President Bush recently fired seven U.S. Attorneys for political reasons and replaced them with members of his 'inner circle.'

Today, a new report concludes that Bush's actions were completely unprecedented. The study was conducted by the non-partisan Congressional Research Service (CRS) and released by House Judiciary Chairman Rep. John Conyers and Subcommittee Chairwoman Rep. Linda Sánchez.

The CRS found that of the 486 U.S. Attorneys confirmed in a president's initial term since 1981, 54 left voluntarily before completing a full four-year term. Of those, no more than three had been forced out under circumstances similar to the current situation.

The examination is ongoing because the Bush Administration has refused to cooperate with the CRS' investigation. 'I intend to do everything within my power to obtain the necessary information and get to the bottom of this growing scandal,' Conyers said.
