Alberto Gonzoles Watch
Kyle Sampson said that Alberto Gonzales was aware of the firings of U.S. Attorneys.
Asked by Senator Arlen Specter, Republican of Pennsylvania, about Mr. Gonzales’s statements at a March 13 news conference that he had not participated in any discussions about the dismissals, Mr. Sampson replied, “I don’t think the attorney general’s statement that he was not involved in any discussions about U.S. attorney removals is accurate.”
Chuck Schumer got Sampson to admit that he discussed the firings with Gonzales "at least five."
The blame goes back on Gonzales and Harriet Miers.
"The decision-makers in this case were the attorney general and the counsel to the president," he said, in what may become the day's sound bite.
The White House needs to fire Gonzales before he testifies.
