  •  Margolis, an American Lord Hutton? (10+ / 0-)

    I read the article on Emptywheel's site yesterday and in the comments (perhaps the article too, don't recall and cannot check right now because the site appears to be down) there was speculation about Margolis being similar to Lord Hutton.  Hutton, it is said, is the person you choose to lead an investigation when you want to be sure of how it turns out.  In other words, he's said to be a "fixer" or a cover up man.

    •  Yes, an apt comparison (5+ / 0-)

      Hutton was the man who shut down the investigation into David Kelly's death in Great Britain. Then he ran his own inquiry, which was a farce, and concluded Kelly's death was suicide. To make sure no one could disagree with him, he then ordered all the docs sealed for 75 years.

      I think we already have a tad more transparency than that. But only a tad.
