Josh Marshall has this bit on the NigerGate case:
There are various other reasons to doubt that the Justice Department has made a serious effort to solve the mystery of the Niger forgeries. But the apparent lack of interest in even speaking to the man at the center of the scheme is a decent place to start.

As Chairman of the senate intel committee, Sen. Roberts is in a position to receive detailed briefings on the status of the investigation. And his spokespersons say he's received them. So what does he know? More reporting needed.
Senator Pat Roberts is in this up to his bald crown. He's covering for the administration in a big way that borders on treason. As Americans and Iraqi's continue to die, these guys cover their asses. And we know that unless the case becomes part of the justice system in some way, the Congressional Republicans will cover it up like a cat covers poop.

No news....the GOP is as corrupt or more corrupt than during the Gilded Age.

UPDATED: Now knowing what Fitzgeralds has had to say, the above is even more important. His investigation appears to be laser-like on Libby and perhaps Rove. It looks like the Niger investigation and anything having to do with the run-up to the war won't happen via him. I hope I'm wrong. But if I'm not, then Congress is back in the spotlight to investigate.

Will they? Elections are coming?

I have also noticed the similarities between today and the early 1900s, especially the erosion and erradication of workers' rights.
