Meet The Press: Frank Rich

Interesting point by NYT's Frank Rich, that the Fitzgerald inquiry wasn't run by tough-hitting Fitzgerald at first. Back in 2003, the investigation was run by the Justice Department, nominally by Ashcroft until he recused himself and he speculates that perhaps the witnesses were more fast and loose with their admissions when it looked like their statements would be safe and stay within the control of the Republican administration.
