Suuure. if a Republican had done this, it would have been the lead story each night, every night on every main stream news show, above the fold on the NYT, front page in Time, Newsweak, etc with headlines shouting: 'EXECUTIVE ABUSE OF POWER!?

In the fullness of time, the government's case may collapse, but there's always the possibility that a home-town jury will sentence them to ten years of making little rock out of big rocks.
