From AP story...
"Attorney General Gonzales is a nice man, but he either doesn't accept or doesn't understand that he is no longer just the president's lawyer, but has a higher obligation to the rule of law and the Constitution even when the president should not want it to be so," Schumer said."

I don't think Señor Gonzales will agree with the senior senator from New York, but thank goodness for oversight which were sorely lacking the last six years.

Firings Had Genesis in White House
Ex-Counsel Miers First Suggested Dismissing Prosecutors 2 Years Ago, Documents Show

The White House suggested two years ago that the Justice Department fire all 93 U.S. attorneys, a proposal that eventually resulted in the dismissals of eight prosecutors last year, according to e-mails and internal documents that the administration will provide to Congress today.

Lawmakers requested the documents as part of an investigation into whether the firings were politically motivated. While it is unclear whether the documents, which were reviewed yesterday by The Washington Post, will answer Congress's questions, they show that the White House and other administration officials were more closely involved in the dismissals, and at a much earlier date, than they have previously acknowledged.


Congress Demands Rove Testimony on Attorney Firings

Congressional committees are now demanding the testimony of President Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, in the burgeoning investigation into the reasons behind the unusual firings of eight U.S. attorneys last year.

"There's an emerging pattern that is extremely disturbing and everyday the sanctity of U.S. Attorneys as neutral enforcers of law without fear or favor is diminished," Schumer said.

Some news reports are saying that at one point, Bush was advised by one or more of his lackeys for ALL fed prosecutors to be fired mainly for failing to go after 'voter fraud'. Gonzales got that pushed down to only firing 8 of them. Apparently some fool wants to make sure non-citizens who voted illegally (and more likely for Democrats) should be a much higher priority to prosecute than to go after drug dealers, financial criminals and terrorists!
To me Gonzales is the worst AG since those under Nixon and should be fired and face international human rights crime tribuals.

Say what you will about the empty suit known as Chuck Schumer, but AG Gonzales is absolute scum. Can't wait to see him in the defendant's box one of these days, if that ever happens.

If you need someone to blame / throw a rock in the air / you'll hit someone guilty
