Did a partisan Justice Department protect Charles Taylor?

A local bank owned by former Rep. Charles Taylor made news four years ago when it was determined that a bank officer close to Taylor had committed loan fraud. Now, with scandal brewing in the U.S. Department of Justice over the alleged firing of several U.S. attorneys for partisan reasons, a national news story speculates on whether the department intervened to protect Taylor.
