White House press release
: (in its entirety, emp add)
President Bush was pleased with the Attorney General's testimony today. After hours of testimony in which he answered all of the Senators' questions and provided thousands of pages of documents, he again showed that nothing improper occurred. He admitted the matter could have been handled much better, and he apologized for the disruption to the lives of the U.S. Attorneys involved, as well as for the lack of clarity in his initial responses.
The Attorney General has the full confidence of the President, and he appreciates the work he is doing at the Department of Justice to help keep our citizens safe from terrorists, our children safe from predators, our government safe from corruption, and our streets free from gang violence.
Yes, when the issue of the day is politicization of the Justice Department, the White House talks about:
- child predators
- gang violence
Also, it is the opinion of this blogger that Bush will hold on to Gonzales for as long as possible, even if everyone else wants him gone.
Of course Bush is pleased.
Gonzales didn't implicate him in anything...
"He couldn't recall" but that's just Republican for "I plead the Fifth."
