Just imagine if Bush “absolved” Scooter Libby …

… or anyone else in his administration suspected of foul play. Would the MSM be having a field day? Would Keith Olbermann be having a stroke in one of his “Special Comments?”

President-elect Barack Obama’s aides plan to release a report this week absolving incoming chief of staff Rahm Emanuel of any impropriety in his contacts with the disgraced Illinois governor’s office, Democratic sources tell Politico.

The report is expected Monday or Tuesday. Obama said last week that he was delaying it until this week at the request of federal prosecutors.

The complaint against Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, whose conversations had been secretly taped by federal investigators, tested the smoothly running Obama transition, with some Democrats fretting that the case presents a distraction that could last into the new administration. (Link.)

Well I guess that is THAT!

UPDATE: Peter Kirsanow must read Colossus! ;-)

Now we will see if we have 'gov't run press'. Don't hold your breath...the msm will simply say, here is the proof that the obama team is sparkling clean and move on, if they mention it at all...freedom of the press is gone!

With respect, can you read?

Obama isn't waving his hand and absolving Emmanuel. The INFORMATION was expected to clear him. Not Obama himself, but the details about contacts with Blago's people.

Bush didn't release any such details about Libby because the guy was guilty. There was no information that would have proved otherwise.

Oh, please. Scooter was "guilty" of obstructing a non-existent crime! Besides, the POINT is, imagine if Bush DID release his "own investigation" about the Libby matter ... and it "absolved" him. How would that have been received?

Can't YOU read??
