Michael Brown, the now well known former horse judge who masqueraded around as the head of F.E.M.A. during one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the country, has decided that he may tell everything there is to tell about what happened with himself at the helm during Katrina. He’s now a private citizen and said he wants all the facts to be public. He wrote a letter to Harriet Myers (Remember her? The very qualified supreme court candidate) stating that he ‘continues to respect Bush and his “presidential prerogative” to get candid and confidential advice from top aides.’
“Unless there is specific direction otherwise from the president, including an assurance the president will provide a legal defense to Mr. Brown if he refuses to testify as to these matters, Mr. Brown will testify if asked about particular communications,” the lawyer wrote.
He’s now been removed from the inner ring of protection. Will we finally learn about the official correspondence between the horse judge and the prez? I’m willing to bet that it won’t be very pretty if the truth comes out. That is, unless the prez backs him to keep quiet. We’ll see.
