Something about Alberto Gonzalez and James Comey made me think of this scene from A Man for All Seasons. Who would Sir Thomas More be?
ALICE – He is! Arrest him!
MARGARET – Father, that man’s bad.
MORE – There is no law against that.
ROPER – There is! God’s law!
MORE – Then God can arrest him.
ROPER – Sophistication upon sophistication!
MORE – No, sheer simplicity. The law, Roper, the law. I know what’s legal not what’s right. And I’ll stick to what’s legal.
