Like Whitewater in Reverse

Fitzgerald's investigation is going the opposite direction of the Starr investigations.

Starr went from what would have been a serious crime, but didn't actually happen (Clinton was cleared in Whitewater when Starr started) to a relatively minor but actual crime (lying under oath about a non-material sexual affair which was appropriately punished by suspension and fine).

Fitzgerald went from a serious crime (making false statements to Federal Officers and a Grand Jury about the subject of an investigation) to what could be a horrendously serious crime (forging documents and lying to Congress to start a war, which would appropriately be punished by impeachment, imprisonment, or permanent exile).
