In my last email, I talked about
Special Prosecutors and their unique role in the law. It prompted this great email from a friend, which I quote
with permission as my first
Dear Mr. Burger,
Thank you so much for your informative
emails; I enjoy them and I always look forward to what you have to say.However, I am a little confused about a
specific matter contained within your email today titled “Compelling Special Prosecution”. In your piece you stated
“There is also an example of the
current special prosecutor threatening Ashcroft when he was in the hospital ill to resign if he did not reauthorize
Bush’s domestic surveillance program.”
I must respectfully take issue with
your recollection or characterization of one of the key facts contained in this sentence.
It is my understanding from history
that Comey and Mueller did NOT
want Bush to reauthorize the domestic surveillance program, which they (Comey and Mueller) both believed
was unlawful. [They] had both threatened to resign if said program were reauthorized.
Andrew Card and Alberto Gonzales were
the ones who rushed to the hospital in their unsuccessful attempt to persuade a weakened, recovering Ashcroft to
reauthorize this program.Here are links to articles from the L.A. Times and New York Times regarding this dramatic
event: [Click here,

If I have somehow misinterpreted
either your opinion or the facts, please let me know.
Once again, thanks so much for
your terrific seminars and emails!
Sincerely, Bruce Bramoweth
