09 Feb 2004 A Man of Principle, Betrayed by His Bosses
Very nice Robert Novak column today posted on townhall.com on the Judiciary Committee scandal. Novak draws on his long-time Washington experience when he sees comparisons between this case and that of the Pentagon Papers 30 years ago. He also reveals that a GOP desire to get a Medicare prescription drug benefit bill through the Senate played a role in this dismal affairs — which was news to me.
Novak also days Manny Miranda as been “treated shabbily” by both Hatch and Frist, and concludes:
Manny Miranda is a man of principle who was betrayed by his bosses in the interests of maintaining an artificial comity with their Democratic colleagues. Now they must decide what to do with those unread e-mails hidden in the safe of the sergeant at arms.
