Dissecting more emails on 8 Attorney firings

US Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the president. Considering this, then why do conversations in this Email Pdf discuss whether this would become national news (on 7 of the firings). Why discuss how they can link 3 of the firings (on southern borders) to immigration concerns, obviously administration officials struggled with how to justify these firings. Why was there a discussion of concern for "political juice" these firings may create? Clearly one attorney was removed to make room for longtime GOP operative and former aide to White House adviser Karl Rove, Tim Griffin. The New York Times states that the "latest batch of documents shows just how completely the department misjudged what the reaction would be to the dismissals."

Gonzo boy said he wasn't involved with discussions regarding the firings but Documents show that he sat in on the meeting.. thus, he lied.
