Bush orders seized documents sealed

FOX News just reported that President Bush has ordered the documents seized during Saturday evening's search of US Rep. William Jefferson's office to be sealed for 45 days.

This means the investigation of Mr. Jefferson, which has been ongoing for the past 14 months, just got put on hold for another month and a half. To what end?

Justice delayed is justice denied. The American people, and, more specifically, the residents of Louisiana's second congressional seat (who are represented by Mr. Jefferson), deserve to know in a timely fashion whether their Congressman is a crook.

It's bad enough that congressional leaders have been misquoting the Constitution for the last four days. Now the President has succumbed to their pressure.

Not good.
