Looks like it's a really good thing that Regent University's' Favorite Alum got her immunity.

A federal judge approved an immunity deal for her Friday, allowing her to testify without fear of prosecution.

Why you ask?

Colleagues Cite Partisan Focus by Justice Official

WASHINGTON, May 11 — Two years ago, Robin C. Ashton, a seasoned criminal prosecutor at the Department of Justice, learned from her boss that a promised promotion was no longer hers.

“You have a Monica problem,” Ms. Ashton was told, according to several Justice Department officials. Referring to Monica M. Goodling, a 31-year-old, relatively inexperienced lawyer who had only recently arrived in the office, the boss added, “She believes you’re a Democrat and doesn’t feel you can be trusted.”


Ms. Goodling would soon be quizzing applicants for civil service jobs at Justice Department headquarters with questions that several United States attorneys said were inappropriate, like who was their favorite president and Supreme Court justice. One department official said an applicant was even asked, “Have you ever cheated on your wife?”

Ms. Goodling also moved to block the hiring of prosecutors with résumés that suggested they might be Democrats, even though they were seeking posts that were supposed to be nonpartisan, two department officials said.

And she helped maintain lists of all the United States attorneys that graded their loyalty to the Bush administration, including work on past political campaigns, and noted if they were members of the Federalist Society, a conservative legal group.

This is ONLY going to get better.

We need some of Henry Waxman's "Charts" to map it all out for's complicated but I'm sure it will be worth the wait.

Man, this has to come to a head at some point, and it will be ugly.

Waxman could always ask O'Reilly to make up the charts for him ... he's so good at making up conspiracy theories with those, he should have no problem charting this instance of reality.

I can hardly wait. They are getting away with everything while Clinton was persecuted for such a ridiculous offense.
