Empowered Democrats

Reuters reports:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Recently empowered congressional Democrats are pounding President George W. Bush with their most feared new weapons -- the ability to hold hearings and compel testimony....

...At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty denied accusations that politics was a factor in firings of seven U.S. prosecutors in the past year.

"When I hear you talk about the politicizing of the
Department of Justice, it is like a knife in my heart," McNulty said.

"What I have seen happen in the Justice Department is a knife in my heart," replied Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat.
Chuck, Chuck, Chuck. How knife struck your heart must have been when Bill Clinton fired every single US prosecutor in the first three months of his administration!

And come down to it, the Clinton firings were not that long ago. How can this article mention 7 firings in a year and not mention the wholesale firings from the Clinton administration?
