Observation Of The Day

Henry Waxman, in a letter to White House Counsel Fred F. Fielding, wonders why the White House is withholding 600 pages of internal documents about Jack Abramoff, when they claim to barely know him at all.

I suppose it could be 600 pages of WH staff asking “Who is this Abramoff character?”, but that hardly seems worth all the secrecy. Maybe Triple-F just wants to keep his stonewalling skills sharp.

    Not to mention, if it was 600 pages of documentation that supported their point, why would they go through the trouble to hide it? (I realize this is the “innocent people have nothing to hide” 5th Amendment argument, but let’s be realistic. It would prove their point!)

    Exactly, although it really is difficult to imagine having 600 pages documenting how *little* you know about someone.

    The thing is, though, they’re pathological liars and concealers who will lie and conceal even when it doesn’t serve their interests, just because it’s all they know, and they think only suckers tell the truth.

    Plus, more substantively, they absolutely don’t want to set any precedents for waiving “executive privilege” and voluntarily giving up documents.
