|One-two Punch from Murray Waas|

He's been quiet for awhile – but what a comeback.
Late Wednesday, Murray Waas posted an investigative piece to the indispensable Huffington Post blowing the lid of disgraced ex-AG Alberto Gonzales's investigations into subordinates he had determined were likely to testify against him in multiple Justice Department inquiries.
To the surprise of nobody, the corporate "mainstream press" completely ignored this devastating story, whose release coincided with chatter in Beltway circles focusing on the possibility that likely AG-to-be Bob Mukasey has quietly telegraphed his willingness to name a special prosecutor to investigate the politicization of the Justice Department.
The good news: "cue-the-crickets" time may now be over.
Waas's latest details the campaign at the top of the Justice Department to force guilty pleas against two individuals in the NSA-NY Times leak case. Problem is. "the evidence against the two people asked to plead guilty was scant, according to other federal investigators involved in the case, and the guilty pleas were sought as a last ditch effort by the Justice Department to avoid having to compel testimony from the Times against its own sources."
Ouch. That could be a problem!
Let's see whether anyone on cable news picks up on the stories now. Paging Mr. Olbermann...
