Washington DC - US Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales was questioned by the US Senate for violating US Law. Gonzales told the Senators that mistakes were made and he takes full responsibility and that he would investigate himself and get back to them.
When reporters ask Gonzales' boss President Bush about the confidence he had in his AG the President expressed confidence in Mr. Gonzales. "What Al did and what the Justice Department did was appropriate," he said. Bush also said the department "mishandled" some but not all details of how the firings of Federal Judges were carried out, and promised that in the future less disturbing information would surface. He added that FOX would fix it for the people.
When Bush was asked about the politically charged accusations involving firing federal justices for not blindly supporting the White House, and for refusing to abuse the power of their position to smear Democrats, the President responded angrily: "They serve at the pleasure of this president, that's me, and they can be removed by me if and when I feel like it; remember 9-11, we are at war with the terrorists, are you on their side or our side? I am the decider; I decide who goes and who stays, whether sitting on the bench or sitting in a cell, damn it. I am the President, if I want to lock up all you reporters I can. I don't even none of that habeas corpus thing no more. If me or my Reich's Counsel Gonzales say what the law is then that is it. Enough said."
Note, our reporters were deported shortly after filing this story.
