Jon Ward for The Washington Times reports: House Republicans don't believe that the Justice Department did anything illegal by firing eight federal prosecutors last year, but they also don't believe that Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales is telling the truth about why the attorneys were dismissed. Several House Republicans are scoffing at Justice Department assertions that a principal reason for several of the dismissals was that the lawyers were not aggressively prosecuting immigration violations. (…) An aide to House Republican leadership agreed that the Justice Department's explanation for the firings is hard to believe. via Paul Kiel at TPM Muckraker
