Time For A New Cover Story
This would appear to be the final nail in the coffin. The AP is reporting that according to documents released today, Alberto Gonzales approved the plan to fire eight US Attorneys in a meeting with his Chief of Staff and other Dept. of Justice officials, and signed off on the procedure for carrying out the dismissals. Gonzales had previously told reporters that he had not been involved in the process.
Hard to imagine, even under the present administration, how the country's top law enforcement official could brazenly lie to the press, the public and Congress, and still hold onto his job. I wager he doesn't last the weekend.
