Did DOJ give WH heads-up to destroy docs?
The good folks over at the DNC's Kicking Ass blog noticed a disturbing bit of timing:
The Associated Press is reporting that the Justice Department has opened a full investigation into the White House's alleged leak of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity.

Do you trust John Ashcroft to conduct this investigation in a thorough and nonpartisan manner?
The [Justice] department notified the counsel's office about 8:30 p.m. Monday that it was launching an investigation but said the White House could wait until the next morning to notify staff and direct them to preserve relevant material, McClellan said.Since when does the Justice Department give people a several-hours head start to destroy evidence before an investigation begins?
