Senate Authorizes Subpoenas

Despite the best efforts by Arlen Specter to sneakily sabotage the process, the Senate Judiciary Committee has authorized subpoenas for White House and DoJ officials if necessary.

“What we’re told we can get is nothing, nothing, nothing,” said Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the Judiciary chairman. “I know he’s the decider for the White House – he’s not the decider for the United States Senate.”
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, fighting for his job amid the prosecutor furor, vowed he would not step aside and promised to cooperate with Congress in the inquiry.
“I’m not going to resign,” Gonzales told reporters after an event in St. Louis.
“No U.S. Attorney was fired for improper reasons,” he added.

This last statement is a repetition of his and others’ false testimony under oath before Congress. Saying this again is a major mistake, and actually ups the ante.

UPDATE: Giuliani says give Gonzales “the benefit of the doubt.” Like Alberto did for the prisoners in Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib? Who is he kidding, Gonzales lied under oath, at least twice, since the start of this year, while he was in fact being given “the benefit of the doubt.” He’s forfeited that privilege.
