DOJ Aide Pleading the Fifth

DOJ AIDE PLEADING THE FIFTH….Look, I know Jeralyn might get mad at me for saying this, but when people start taking the 5th there’s obviously some serious funny business going on. I think Andrew Sullivan’s correspondent has the right idea: give Goodling immunity and force her to testify. She’s obviously a small fish (or maybe even a non-fish) anyway.

UPDATE: Orin Kerr isn’t sure Goodling has any standing to take the 5th in the first place. So maybe offering her immunity isn’t necessary after all.
