WASHINGTON Mar 23, 2007 (AP)— Attorney General Alberto Gonzales approved plans to fire several U.S. attorneys in a November meeting, according to documents released Friday that contradict earlier claims that he was not closely involved in the dismissals.
This is in sharp contrast to what has been maintained by the administration all along, that Gonzalez was not involved in the decision.
Not involved…But on November 27, there was an hour-long meeting, Gonzalez and Sampson were both present, and the Attorney General signed off on it.
Gonzalez is gone by noon Monday. Rove and Meiers have to testify. Under oath. Snow resigns.
Boy they held a lot of bad news for the dump today, didn’t they?
