DOJ report finds wrongdoing under Gonzales

On the national news front, an internal Justice Department report concluded that politics illegally influenced the hiring of immigration judges and career prosecutors while Alberto Gonzales was Attorney General.

The report pointed much of the blame at Gonzales, although it blamed the specific wrongdoing on aides Monica Goodling, the former White House liaison, and former Gonzales chief of staff Kyle Sampson.

An Associated Press article quotes Attorney General Michael Mukasey as saying he was “of course disturbed” by the report’s findings.
