Bang of a Summer IV - And the Books were opened

Out of Drudge:

"President Bush stepped into the Justice Department's constitutional confrontation with Congress on Thursday and ordered that documents seized in an FBI raid on a congressman's office be sealed for 45 days.

The president directed that no one involved in the investigation have access to the documents under seal and that they remain in the custody of the solicitor general.

Bush's move was described as an attempt to reach a cooling off period in a heated confrontation between his administration and leaders of the House and Senate.

"This period will provide both parties more time to resolve the issues in a way that ensures that materials relevant to the ongoing criminal investigation are made available to prosecutors in a manner that respects the interests of a coequal branch of government," Bush said."

Well, that's the official statement. But there is more in the documents, as some of my commenters have pointed out - much more, which is why they have been sealed. "Cooling off"....yeah....heh, heh...

UPDATE: TKS taking it personal, as does Michelle Malkin, but cheer up! It's not at all like it seems.

UPDATE II: Captain Ed weighs in.
