Carol Lam Firing

The Justice Department scandal just gets more disgusting.

WASHINGTON - Fired San Diego U.S. attorney Carol Lam notified the Justice Department that she intended to execute search warrants on a high-ranking CIA official as part of a corruption probe the day before a Justice Department official sent an e-mail that said Lam needed to be fired, U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Sunday.

The search warrant was intended for Kyle Dustin "Dusty" Foggo. He was indicted for his involvement in the Randy "Duke" Cunningham bribery scandal.

Kyle Sampson (no surprise) sent the email on dismissing Lam.

"the real problem we have right now with Carol Lam that leads me to conclude that we should have someone ready to be nominated on 11/18, the day her 4-year term expires."

Sampson is refusing to comment on the email. Through his lawyer, no less.

Who did know that Lam was going to search Foggo's residence was Alberto Gonzales and Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty. Cases of that sensitive of a nature demand that the Attorney General know. Lam sent a report at 10:16 a.m. on May 10. The question is did Gonzales tell his right hand man Sampson?

Update: John Conyers has scheduled a vote on subpoenas. That means it is highly likely Karl Rove, Scott Jennings, Harriet Miers and William Kelley will have to testify.
