They Lied To Congress? Again?

Rove Is Linked to Early Query Over Dismissals - New York Times:
WASHINGTON, March 15 — Karl Rove, the senior presidential adviser, inquired about firing United States attorneys in January 2005, e-mail messages released Thursday show. The request prompted a Justice Department aide to respond that Alberto R. Gonzales, soon to be confirmed as attorney general, favored replacing a group of “underperforming” prosecutors.

The e-mail messages, part of a larger collection that the Justice Department is preparing to turn over to Congressional investigators, indicate that Mr. Rove and Mr. Gonzales, then the White House counsel, had considered replacing prosecutors earlier than either has previously acknowledged.
I'm shocked, shocked and dismayed, that any of my highly placed government lackeys officials would attempt to fool mislead Congress in order to cover up explain their own totally illegal possibly unethical conduct or the conduct of the president others. Shocked, I tell you. Shocked. (Please note lack of exclamation points; a sure indicator of tongue-in-cheek understated sarcasm.)
