Yoo and Others in Trouble?

Readers of this blog may recall a post regarding Ackerman's call for the impeachment of Jay Bybee, John Yoo's boss. A Sunday NYTimes article recounts the problems that some of the Bush Administration's legal team are experiencing. Alberto Gonzales and David Addington still can't find work. Yoo went back to his tenured position at UC Berkeley and Bybee was appointed to the 9th Circuit before some of these issues were raised (who says the 9th Circuit is hopelessly liberal?).

What's next? There is a pending investigation about whether Yoo and Bybee violated ethical rules. You can read about it here. Could they be disciplined? Stay tuned...
