Liar Liar...

pants on fire. Alberto mi amigo, say it isn't so, so help me God?

Wa Po - Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.) charged yesterday that Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales misled the Senate during his confirmation hearing a year ago when he appeared to try to avoid answering a question about whether the president could authorize warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens.

In a letter to the attorney general yesterday, Feingold demanded to know why Gonzales dismissed the senator's question about warrantless eavesdropping as a "hypothetical situation" during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in January 2005. At the hearing, Feingold asked Gonzales where the president's authority ends and whether Gonzales believed the president could, for example, act in contravention of existing criminal laws and spy on U.S. citizens without a warrant. <more>

Everyone in the Administration who has been truthful please step forward, not so fast Mr. Attorney General, Mr. President, Karl, Dick, Condi, Rummy, Scooter...

Does this mean that we can un-do his confirmation? Wouldn't that be helpful! I know, dream on.....

I'm shocked - SHOCKED - to find out an appointee of Bush misled the Congress and American people.

Add another name to the "No you may not step forward List"


Head of the NSA lied to Congress as well about Bush's illegal spy program, which is a crime

Was he under oath at the time? I think if he was, he might have a problem. Isn't that lying to a congressional committee? Can they bring charges? Finally, a little truth might win out!

Another example of what a person will do to keep a job. Gonzo gives the word Attorney a bad name. Yet he is a true example of how you can loss your soul to the devil.
I don't think he'll get many offers for a job when this corrupt Administration falls.

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is a disgrace. If he had any honor at all, he would resign. I seriously doubt that President Bush would fire him, after all Karl Rove is still in the White House.
