“Top Democrat Says Gonzales Should Resign
“By HOPE YEN
“WASHINGTON (March 11) – The Senate’s No. 3 Democrat said Sunday that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales should resign because he is putting politics above the law. Sen. Charles Schumer cited the FBI’s illegal snooping into people’s private lives and the Justice Department’s firing of federal prosecutors.
“Schumer, D-N.Y., said Gonzales repeatedly has shown more allegiance to President Bush than to citizens’ legal rights since taking his job in early 2005. He branded Gonzales, a former White House counsel, as one of the most political attorneys general in recent history.
“‘Attorney General Gonzales … either doesn’t accept or doesn’t understand that he … has a higher obligation to the rule of law and the Constitution …,’ Schumer said. ‘ … I think for the sake of the nation, Attorney General Gonzales should step down,’ he said. …
“Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., a member of the … Judiciary Committee, said Gonzales would be ‘better off’ if he resigned. ‘There is very little credibility in the Justice Department right now,’ Biden said. He cited what he said were abuses of power dating to Gonzales’ tenure as White House counsel …. ‘I think Gonzales has lost the confidence of the vast majority of the American people … [and] the Congress.’
“Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, the top Republican on the committee, said … ‘there have been lots of problems …’ … [and] last week suggested that a Gonzales tenure may have run its course. …
“On Friday, Gonzales and FBI director Robert Mueller acknowledged the FBI had broken the law to secretly pry out personal information about people in the U.S. …. The admission came after a blistering 126-page report by the Justice Department’s inspector general that found agents improperly obtained telephone records and demanded sensitive data … without judicial approval.
“Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said it is the Bush administration’s right to fire U.S. attorneys because they serve at the will of the president. Still, he said, the Justice Department was wrong to attack their reputations. ‘I don’t believe the attorney general will resign, but this whole episode was unnecessarily poorly handled,’ Graham said.
“Over the weekend, Bush … expressed confidence in … Mueller and Gonzales. … Bush said that while the inspector general’s report ‘justly made issue of FBI shortfalls, (it) also made clear that these letters were important to the security of the United States.’
“Lawmakers from both parties called the FBI abuses unacceptable. They noted it was Congress that demanded the inspector general review the program even as Justice Department officials were providing assurances the government’s surveillance programs were being run responsibly.”

Roger Rabbit Commentary: Any corporate CEO who ran his company this poorly would be summarily dismissed. Gonzales should go! If he won’t quit, he should be impeached, then handed over to the Hague to stand trial for crimes against humanity. I’m not talking about terrorists — he can do whatever he want to terrorists, if he ever catches one. I’m talking about all the innocent people who were tortured because of his legal malpractice. He should be disbarred, too.
