Interesting times at the DOJ

The ancient Chinese curse says, "May you be born in interesting times." Well, this week will be an interesting time at the Department of Justice with Monica M. Goodling, the department's former liaison to the White House, gearing up to give her much-anticipated testimony before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday. Goodling, you may recall, left the DOJ in April after invoking her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination in reference to her role in the U.S. Attorneys firings. She has received a limited grant of immunity to provide the testimony.

Add to the mix the fact that the Senate is threatening to take up a no-confidence vote against U.S. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales as early as this week, and you have quite a chain of events shaping up.

I can't quite decide whether this is a good or a bad week for Justice -- all depends on your point of view, I guess.
