"GOP Leaders Seek Probe of Berger Papers"
<snip>

Democrats had complained about the timing of the original disclosure of the investigation in 2004, claiming the White House was using Berger to deflect attention from the Sept. 11 commission's harsh pre-election findings. Wednesday's events sparked similar charges from Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., top Democrat on the House Government Reform Committee.

In a letter to Davis, Waxman wrote that the Berger incident is not new and has been reviewed by committee staff. He noted Berger gave a television interview Tuesday criticizing the Bush administration's policies on North Korea.

"It would be regrettable if the letter from Republican members that you received today and your own letter to NARA (National Archives and Records administration) were prompted by Mr. Berger's criticism of the administration," Waxman wrote. "It would be equally regrettable if the sudden calls for an investigation were part of an organized effort to divert attention from the war in Iraq and other pressing national issues."

Davis' spokesman had no immediate response.

3. Why investigate something that has already been settled in federal court?
Spending tax-payer money on a RESOLVED issue is pointless. It's the GOP playing politics ... AGAIN!
