This morning Arlen Specter got Abu Gonzales to confirm that Bush shut down a congressionally requested inquiry of the Justice Department’s role in drafting (illegal) domestic eavesdropping programs. Note how quickly Single Bullet ditched the issue after he got Abu to confirm it.

But there was a time when the GOP wasn’t satisfied with the Executive Branch having a conflict of interest in investigating itself, and definitely wasn’t satisfied with the absence of any investigation at all.

Do you remember when that was?
