|Mukasey: ‘Not Every Wrong, Or . . . Every Violation of the Law, is a Crime’]]

Posted by Ashby Jones
Mukasey said today that neither Monica Goodling nor Kyle Sampson (nor anyone else, it seems), will face prosecution for considering improper political considerations in their hiring of judges and lawyers. (Click here and here for earlier posts on the topic.) “Not every wrong, or even every violation of the law, is a crime,” he said. “In this instance, the two joint reports found only violations of the civil service laws.”
etc.

So the so-called most powerful attorney in the US Government is telling people that “not every violation of law is a crime.”
