Hastert Raises the Stakes

Well, I've commented that the White House and the Congressional GOP need to improve their working relationship to help themselves in the midterm elections. And I've noted that Rove was coming to Capitol Hill to meet with the House GOP and talk about immigration (I surmised). So how do these two trends come together? House Speaker Hastert has come out of the Rove meeting and held an improptu press conference where he insisted that the DoJ return the documents seized from William Jefferson's office, and that those involved in the raid be 'frozen out' of the process from here forward.

Back to the top.
