The DOJ Scandal Meets The Press
MR. RUSSERT: Knowing what you know today, do you have confidence in the leadership and the integrity of the attorney general?
MR. IGLESIAS: Right now I’ve got serious doubts. I really do.
MR. RUSSERT: Is he—does he have the standing to continue in that position?
MR. IGLESIAS: That’s a great question, and I think that’s something that has to be figured out in the scrum between the Justice Department, the White House and Capitol Hill.
The lie says it never sees the truth
Until it has it floating face down,
Says it only glances back
Through the glitter of hoary water
Where it gazes upon its victim.
The lie declares it does not hear truth
Until the hammer’s heavy finish,
Says it sees a stream of blood
Through the mist of unsettling rage
And then perceives the thundered echo.
In the scrum it is a death for knowledge,
And another for treachery.
Victim and murderer both;
One bobbing breathless,
The other caught unaware
Looking back with pride.
