How interesting. The lead prosecutor of the most important federal corruption investigation has just been nominated by Bush for a federal district judge position. This guy is the section chief--the head honcho. And coincidentally, this occurs at the same time that (1) we find out that Abramoff attended staff meetings at the White House and (2) we find out that there are about 6 pictures of Bush and Abramoff that Bush refuses to release (after he said he didn't even know the man who raised $100,000 for the Bush/Cheney campaign).

Let's not forget that Bush's top federal procurement official, David Safavian, was arrested at the White House in conneciton with the Abramoff scandal.

The prosecutor, Noel Hillman, is chief of the department's Office of Public Integrity, and the move ends his involvement in an investigation that has reached into the administration as well as into the top ranks of the Republican leadership on Capitol Hill.
