Those phone calls in the night

WaPo: Six fired U.S. attorneys testified on Capitol Hill yesterday that they had separately been the target of complaints, improper telephone calls and thinly veiled threats from a high-ranking Justice Department official or members of Congress, both before and after they were abruptly removed from their jobs.

In back-to-back hearings in the Senate and House, former U.S. attorney David C. Iglesias of New Mexico and five other former prosecutors recounted specific instances in which some said they felt pressured by Republicans on corruption cases and one said a Justice Department official warned him to keep quiet or face retaliation.

Why does coverage of the White House and related news keep reminded me more and more of reruns of the Sopranos? We really need to put the main culprits like Bush and Cheney in prison and put their underlings and coconspirators in jail for their collusion with a known criminal organization.

Aren't you supposed to first "look around for your shoes"?
