Goodling "Involved" In Domenici Call:
According to the AP, Monica Goodling "was involved in an April Sixth, 2006, phone call between the Justice Department and New Mexico Republican Senator Pete Domenici." (Hat tip: Talking Points Memo) I'm not sure what "involved" means, and unfortunately the AP story doesn't give any details. But if "involved" means either in on the calls or a participant in setting them up, that would seem to be pretty big news: Monica Goodling was the Attorney General's liaison to the White House, and her involvement would make it less likely that Domenici had just picked up the phone one day and made the call entirely on his own. On the other hand, it would certainly help explain her asserting the Fifth Amendment privilege. Stay tuned.
