Outside The System

Released yesterday:


She wanted the memo giving her unprecedented and virtually unchecked hiring and firing authority over non-civil service DoJ employees (the existence of this memo was revealed only last month by Murray Waas of the National Journal).

Moreover, she okayed the memo to be sent to her "outside the system".  Why would she ask that?  Because she knew that it was, shall we say, not kosher.

Flashback to Monica’s testimony before Congress a few weeks ago:

"I believe I crossed the line, but I didn’t mean to"

Not "mean to"?  Honey, when you take steps to cover up what you did, then you know it was wrong.

Think Progress has more.
