42. Yes, earlier and he refused to comment on the issue. He was asked if he supported the WH position
on not allowing Miers to testify and he refused to answer since it was an "ongoing issue."

37. Read somewhere he testified in closed session to the committee
Can't recall where I saw that so also can't vouch for the credibility of it. But, part of the problem also is that numerous people have been interviewed by (at the very least) Committee staff, and other hearings have taken place that aren't always aired on CSPAN or even in the public eye.

Personally, I have a problem with these "closed session" discussions. Whenever Gonzo gets nervous, he'll say he'd be happy to talk about it in 'closed session'. Then, we have testimony that by law none of the participants can discuss!

63. When the hearings are done today, you guys must listen to T. Hartmann's radio
show replay (or online). He's dissecting Comey's testimony and Gonzales's today and believes there's a second secret surveillance program that hasn't been discussed except in a roundabout way. He believes the rush to Ashcroft's bedside is not about the domestic program we're somewhat familiar with...

This makes some sense in a variety of ways...but to me whenever I hear an admission of guilt from the WH, as happened with domestic spying, I'm immediately suspicious that there's more to the story and that all the fireworks are meant to hide a bigger misdeed. There's a purpose to the admission beyond coming clean...coming clean has not ever, EVER been a strong point of the WH.

Something else is going on here...

Of course--the media is complicit in their corruption, they know it,
and so they conveniently blame the media.

Then they turn around and bite the media in the ass--and the media still spews their BS for them.

76. Did you discuss classified information in front of
Mrs. Ashcroft, who did not have a security clearance.

AG: I don't believe so. I don;t believe that *Ashcroft* disclosed any info.

Schumer: Who sent you.

AG: Gonzales won't answer who sent him.

119. He kept saying, over and over, "I was there on behalf of the WH." "did the prez send you?" "I was
there on behalf of the WH." "Did the prez send you? answer the question!" "I was there on behalf of the WH." "Did the VICE PREZ send you?" "I was there on behalf of the WH."

He refused to say exactly WHO sent him, so ONE OF THEM DID.

Morale at an all-time low.

The dept. is dysfunctional.

Sounds like, to Specter (re: Oxy), malice; criminal conduct.
