I can’t believe it’s still possible for me to find this depressing, but ThinkProgress has an interview with a former U.S. attorney who’s claiming that John Ashcroft was pushed out of the administration because he refused to override the acting AG from his hospital bed in order to authorize warrantless wiretaps. No good deed goes unpunished, I suppose.
