GOODLING GETS IMMUNITY….Excellent. I see that the House Judiciary Committee has voted to grant immunity to Monica “Fifth Amendment” Goodling so that she can testify under oath about Purgegate. Even a majority of the Republicans on the committee voted in favor.
Good for them. Goodling’s refusal to testify has never seemed to be so much about genuine Fifth Amendment concerns as it was about the fact that she simply didn’t think she should have to face tough questioning from a hostile panel. Unfortunately, the law doesn’t say anything about that. It’s time to get her under oath.
