Bloomberg
By Laura Litvan

Reid in the interview said he didn’t know if the White House is engaged in obstructing justice, though he said the matter is emerging as one of the Bush administration’s most troubling “scandals.”

“This is a scandal and the American people are interested in the truth, and that’s always a little hard to come by, especially when you have Karl Rove involved in the scenario,” Reid said.

March 23 (Bloomberg) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said he doesn’t expect Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to survive the uproar over the firing of eight U.S. attorneys and predicted he will be gone in a month, “one way or the other.”

Reid, a Nevada Democrat, also said he envisions the outlines of a compromise with the Bush administration about testimony of White House officials in a probe of the firings that would allow some administration officials to testify in private without sworn testimony, as long as the deal doesn’t involve Bush’s top political adviser, Karl Rove.

“Certainly, Karl Rove, with his resume, would have to be under oath,” Reid, 67, said in an interview with Bloomberg TV’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt,” scheduled to air this weekend. “He simply in my opinion, and I think the majority of the American people, is not trustworthy.”

Bush To Dems: Opposition Wastes Time

President Accuses Congress Of Delaying “The People’s Business” With Investigations, Iraq Resolutions

WASHINGTON, D.C., March 24, 2007

(CBS/AP) President George W. Bush accused the Democratic-led Congress of wasting taxpayers’ time picking fights with the White House instead of resolving disputes over money for U.S. troops and the firings of the U.S. attorneys.

In his weekly radio address Saturday, Bush called on Democratic leaders in Congress to move beyond political discord and take bipartisan action on both issues that have driven a wedge between the Bush administration and Capitol Hill.

He urged them to accept his offer to allow lawmakers to interview his advisers about the dismissal of eight federal prosecutors — but not under oath — and provide documents detailing communications they had about the firings with outside parties.

Democrats, armed with subpoenas for Bush’s top political adviser Karl Rove and other top aides, are pressing the White House to allow the advisers to answer questions under oath about the firing of eight federal prosecutors. Bush says the Democrats are simply playing politics, trying to create a media spectacle.

The ongoing presence of 150,000 troops in the middle of Iraq, under the direction of this administration, entails grave risk of escalation beyond Iraq, whether deliberately or unintentionally — a fact that is almost completely ignored in our “debate” over whether to withdraw troops. The seizure this week of 15 British sailors by Iran illustrates how grave those risks are.

As expected, the British immediately claimed that its ship was in Iraqi waters, while the Iranians claimed it had entered Iranian waters. One of the great tragedies of the last several years is how little credibility the U.S. and its most loyal foreign government have in light of their conduct concerning Iraq. While no rational person would believe Iranian claims without corroborating evidence, no rational person would simply assume the British were telling the truth either. Both sides are still insisting on their original stories:

Asked about the statement, a British diplomat in Tehran said: “We still maintain they were in Iraqi waters when they were picked up.”

Tehran earlier on Saturday condemned what it called “Britain’s illegal infiltration of Iranian waters,” the ISNA news agency reported.

New U.S. Attorneys Seem To Have Partisan Records

WASHINGTON – Under President Bush, the Justice Department has backed laws that narrow minority voting rights and pressed U.S. attorneys to investigate voter fraud – policies that critics say have been intended to suppress Democratic votes.

Bush, his deputy chief of staff, Karl Rove, and other Republican political advisers have highlighted voting rights issues and what Rove has called the “growing problem” of election fraud by Democrats since Bush took power in the tumultuous election of 2000, a race ultimately decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Since 2005, McClatchy Newspapers has found, Bush has appointed at least three U.S. attorneys who had worked in the Justice Department’s civil rights division when it was rolling back longstanding voting-rights policies aimed at protecting predominantly poor, minority voters.
