DOJ won't oppose immunity deal for Goodling

The Justice Department will not try to prevent Congress from granting immunity to a former department official to testify about the firing of eight federal prosecutors, the Pioneer Press reports on its website.

In a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich., officials from two Justice Department offices investigating whether the department played politics when hiring prosecutors said they would prefer not to see the department's former White House liaison, Monica Goodling, given immunity.

"However, we understand the committee's interest in obtaining Ms. Goodling's testimony," the letter said. "Therefore after balancing the significant public interest against the impact of the committee's actions on our ongoing investigation, we will not raise an objection or seek a deferral."
