Ashcroft recuses self in CIA leak probe

From Yahoo/AP

Comong this far into the investigation, I wonder if this means they are planning to implicate someone... Unless they have a particular individual under investigation who might have ties to Ashcroft, i can't imagine why he would remove himself from the probe.

Who could have leaked the information and not have had ties to Ashcroft?

Who could have leaked the information and not have had ties to Ashcroft?

There are probably thousands of people who fit that bill, depending on how it hppened.

Maybe Ashcroft is the leaker.

I''m sure you''ve heard the phrase ""the appearance of impropriety."" Even if Ashcroft did nothing wrong (well, this time ) he has to avoid even LOOKING like he''s got something to hide. He''s got past ties with people involved in the case, so he has to recuse himelf so it doesn''t look like he''s helping his friends in any way.

Maybe it''s his dog. The Bush''s Baked Beans commercials were warning signs. His dog is a terrist.

Dont you mean terrorier Pyro?
