Nadler Wants More Than Gonzales

Even before today’s testimony by Kyle Sampson, Alberto Gonzales’ former chief-of-staff, Democrat Jerrold Nadler of New York was convinced that the attorney general’s days were numbered.

“I think it’ the end of Gonzales, but I hope it’s a lot more,” said Nadler earlier this week. The chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties added that he is in favor of issuing subpoenas to the most senior administration officials.

When I asked him about the prospect of the officials fighting the subpoenas and refusing to testify in court, Nadler said “They can’t contest every single one. If they do there will be a confrontation.”
