Bush’s Untouchables

To the Editor:

Re “Impeach Alberto Gonzales” [Aug. 6]:

People seem surprised when Attorney General Alberto Gonzales lies to Congress, as if they expect him to tell the truth.

Why should he tell the truth? After all, who is going to investigate him? The Justice Department? He is the Justice Department. And even if he were investigated, brought to trial and convicted of perjury, he’d never go to jail because President Bush would pardon him, just like he did Scooter Libby.

Mr. Gonzales and anyone in the Bush administration can break the law with impunity and get away with it.
