purely partisan reasons:
“You have a Monica problem,” Ms. Ashton was told, according to several Justice Department officials. Referring to Monica M. Goodling, a 31-year-old, relatively inexperienced lawyer who had only recently arrived in the office, the boss added, “She believes you’re a Democrat and doesn’t feel you can be trusted.”Yet, I am sure I will be told by some conservative that this is just "business as usual," or that "Clinton did it too."
Mr. Comey said that if the accusations about Ms. Goodling’s partisan actions were true, the damage was deep and real.And not just the Justice Department. The entire government will need to retrieve its reputation.
“I don’t know how you would put that genie back in the bottle, if people started to believe we were hiring our A.U.S.A.s (Assistant United States Attorneys) for political reasons,” he said at a House hearing this month. “I don’t know that there’s any window you can go to to get the department’s reputation back if that kind of stuff is going on.”
