Wouldn’t it be nice if Bush would nominate some honest lawyers who respect the constitution to head up the justice department? All of the top spots are empty. But he will want people he can trust to not investigate his administration, someone who agrees to illegal wiretaps and torture and prisoner rendition around the world, and I really hope that the congress doesn’t give in.
AP – Resigning Attorney General Alberto Gonzales left the scandal-scarred Justice Department on Friday, declaring himself hopeful about its mission of ferreting out crime and defending the truth. Gonzales quit after 2 1/2 years at the department amid investigations into whether he broke the law and lied to Congress. He has denied any wrongdoing.
