In his hometown paper, the Auburn Journal, Republican Congressman John T. Doolittle writes that the FBI raid of his home in Northern Virginia and incessant questioning of his wife is evidence of an effort by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to escape the glare of the spotlight by going after GOP congressmen.
I do not believe it was a coincidence that the leak came the day before Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified before Congress on charges that his office was overly partisan in its firing of eight U.S. Attorneys, especially considering Gonzales specifically cited his recent prosecution of Republican members of Congress as evidence to the contrary.
In my mind, these events clearly indicate that there was more behind the search of our home than the pursuit of justice.
