DOJ Train Wreck, Ressam Sentencing

Former U.S. Attorney John McKay writes of the U.S. Attorney firing mess: Train Wreck at the Justice Department: An Eyewitness Account, 31 Seattle U.L. Rev. 265 (2008), available on the Seattle Weekly's website.

The Weekly discusses the article and the Ahmed Ressam case, now before the U.S. Supreme Court: Rick Anderson, Former U.S. Attorney John McKay Takes the Gloves Off on the White House, March 12, 2008.

Taken as a whole, McKay's Law Review article sounds like a closing argument for locking up most of the Bush administration. Though he once picked his words cautiously when speaking of the Bush Justice Department, McKay refers to former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as a "liar" with "sinister" motives, and says other Justice and White House officials also perjured themselves in Senate hearings as part of a possible criminal conspiracy.
