The offshoot of a non-scandal

Democratic complaints about the replacement of the eight U.S. Attorneys continue to amount to very little on the merits. However, Democratic and Republican members of Congress are justifiably unhappy that Alberto Gonzales presented them with incorrect testimony on the subject.
So far, as I discussed here, there appears to be no evidence that Gonzales knew his testimony to Congress was incorrect or that he was attempting to mislead anyone. However, his top aide Kyle Sampson, who did know that Gonzales’ tesimony was incorrect, reportedly may soon testify before Congress. Sampson has not indicated that Gonzales had information inconsistent with what he told Congress, but he has said that other high-level Justice Department officials, who helped prepare the response to Congress, did.
Stay tuned.
