This Just In ~ GonzoGate

This is a twitter Demon Princess just has to share: a headline reading, "Gonzales clarifies his position ~ followed by "doesn't recall" ~

But he is absolutely certain of this:

"I believe in truth and accountability, and every step that I've taken is consistent with that principle."

And this:

"At the end of the day, I know what I did. And I know that the motivations for the decisions that I made were not based upon improper reasons."

"Gonzales sought to explain weeks of inconsistencies about how closely involved he had been in decisions to dismiss the eight U.S. attorneys. He said he had been aware his staff was drawing up plans for the firings but did not recall taking part in discussions over which people would actually be told to go."

Gonzales is touring the country, talking about safe things, like preventing child sex abuse. The press nabbed him in Boston & attempted to turn the conversation toward even more scintillating topics. (Title bar.)

"Asked why he had not resigned, as some Democrats and Republicans have demanded, he said: 'I am fighting for the truth.'

"Gonzales' credibility took a fresh hit this week with the Senate testimony of his former chief of staff, Kyle Sampson, who said the attorney general was regularly briefed about plans to fire the prosecutors and was involved with discussions about'"this process of asking certain U.S. attorneys to resign.'

Not to mention Gonzo-gate's own Monica, who has already decided to plead the 5th if she were to be called to testify. If anyone else is going to be called to testify publically, that is--Bush is still trying to get Congress to accept off-the-record, closed-door sessions.
