Bolt-On Off the Hook?

According to the State Department, Cap'n Mustachios didn't tesitfy before the Grand Jury in TreasonGate.

Why didn't he?

And about Bolton being appointed by Recess?
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican, confirmed that the Senate would not act on Bolton's nomination in the remaining hours before the recess, "and therefore we will address it after the recess."


Update via Raw Story: Biden sez not so fast:
The Honorable Condoleezza Rice Secretary of State Washington, DC 20520

Dear Madam Secretary:

It has just come to my attention that then-Undersecretary of State John Bolton was interviewed on July 18, 2003 by the State Department Office of the Inspector General in connection with a joint State Department/CIA IG investigation related to the alleged Iraqi attempts to procure uranium from Niger. This information would appear to be inconsistent with information that Mr. Bolton provided to the Committee on Foreign Relations during the Committee's consideration ofms pending nomination to be Permanent Representative to the United Nations.

The Committee on Foreign Relations expects all nominees to provide to it accurate and timely information. Indeed, in submitting the Committee's questionnaire, all nominees are required to swear out an affidavit stating that the information provided is "true and accurate."

Oh what tagled webs Bolton weaved...

I doubt it is going to matter to the amoral chimperor, do you? But if the dems don't raise up over this travesty then perhaps there isn't any hope for America because republicans sure aren't going to suddenly find Jesus and put the country before the party.

Don't recall being on the steering committee of the Federalist Society.

Don't recall being interviewed by the IG.

These peoples' memories are turning downright Clintonian.
