The attempt to criminalize policy differences; Probe clears Bush lawyers

The great Richard Epstein, no friend of the late Bush Administration, takes a principled stand:
Let's thank David Margolis for putting a stop to a legal crusade before it turned into a legal vendetta. Yet, with hindsight, a prudent DOJ should not have started on this inquiry at all. To steal a line from William Tecumseh Sherman, "Investigations are hell." 
The Holder Department of Justice should be ashamed of itself. The far-left is wailing and whining at its failure to obtain a fresh scalp. Let them. Giving advice may show bad judgement; it is not a crime or a weapon to punish political enemies.
