John Roberts was Visited by Bush the Day before the Gitmo Ruling in the DC District Court

Which was about a week before his nomination. Hmmmm...

This ought to generate some questions. Ought to; who knows if it will.

Let's hope one of 'em talked to Novak--off the record, of course!

Where's the source on this? It would be interesting if it's true.

Hi, the only source I have now is DemocracyNow!, and the Nation. I'll see what else is around.

More disturbing (well, depending on how you look at it) is that the Bush admin refuses to turn over documents written by Roberts for the justice department. Bork, et al, have all turned over all docs to the Sentate -- this is a new development. Or, more of the same, considering how this admin treats Congressional overview.

Nation article.

Buried in the Times, a discussion of the Bush admin's refusal to release documents: here.

Apparently, "attorney-client" privilige holds. Even though the client, in his public career, is the United States of America. Renquist provided his memos when he was deputy attorney general under Nixon. Amazing.

What are they trying to hide?

Oh, and by the way, you won't see this on Fox, but it turns out that Roberts was a member of the Federalist Society, despite Bush admin insistence: here.

What are they trying to hide, I wonder?
