Immunity in U.S. Attorney Investigation!

The Honorable Thomas F. Hogan, Chief U.S. District Court Judge for the District of Columbia, granted immunity to Monica Gooding.

The ruling stems from the U.S. House’s application for immunity to Monica Gooding, in exchange for her testimony in the continuing investigation into the firing of U.S. Attorneys.

The full text of the order reads:

UPON CONSIDERATION of the Application of the Committee on the Judiciary of the U.S. House of Representatives (“the Committee”) for an Order Immunizing the Testimony of, and Other Information Provided by, Monica Gooding, and the Memorandum of Points and Authorities in Support thereof, and having determined that the requirements of 18 U.S.C § 6005 have been satisfied, it is by the Court this 11th day of May, 2007 ORDERED

That Monica Goolding may not refuse to testify, and may not refuse to provide other information, when compelled to do so at proceedings before or ancillary to the Committee (including its subcommittees) on the basis of her constitutional privilege against self-incrimination, and it is FURTHER ORDERED

That no testimony or other information compelled under this Order (or any information directly or indirectly derived from such testimony or other information) may be used against Monica Goodling in any criminal proceeding, except prosecutions for perjury, giving a false statement, or otherwise failing to comply with this Order.
