Justice Chiefs Threaten To Quit Over Documents

Perhaps President Bush and Speaker Hastert should listen carefully:

Top officials at the Justice Department and the FBI threatened to resign this week if President Bush ordered them to return materials seized in last week’s raid of Rep. William Jefferson’s office, senior administration officials said.

The showdown, said to be reaching a “tipping point” by one senior administration official, was put on hold by Bush’s decision to seal the materials for 45 days.

A senior Justice Department official told CNN before the president’s decision a Justice official said the materials would be returned to Capitol Hill “over our dead bodies.”

Stay tuned, folks, because this could get really ugly(er).
