Poor Al . . . .

Thus far, this is the biggest news from the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing today:

Congressional Quarterly MIDDAY UPDATE - March 29, 2007 – 2:24 p.m.

Former Aide Contradicts Gonzales on Involvement in Firings

The former chief of staff to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales today flatly contradicted Gonzales’ initial claim of marginal involvement in the firings of eight federal prosecutors last year.

“I don’t think the attorney general’s statement that he was not involved in any discussions about U.S. attorney removals is accurate,” Kyle Sampson told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

If you remember, Al's March 13th press conference, he stated just the opposite.

I'm guessing in his April 17th appearance before the same committee, Al will use the phrase "I don't recall that . . .", "Not to my recollection . . . . ", "I can't confirm that . . . " at least as many time as Kyle Sampson did today.

Perhaps some ginkgo biloba is in order for the gentlemen to assist in their memory function?
