Impeach Gonzales

This sort of complete incompetence — or dissembling under oath — ought surely to be impeachable.

Think Progress » Gonzales: “I Haven't Really Thought About” Habeas Corpus:

At today’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, Rep. Brad Sherman (D-CA) asked Attorney General Alberto Gonzales whether any U.S. citizens are “being held today, for over a month, who have been denied habeas corpus or access to an attorney.” Instead of giving an answer, Gonzales replied, “[Y]ou’re asking me a question I hadn’t really thought about.”

Sherman then followed up and asked whether there any “U.S. citizens being held now by foreign governments or foreign organizations, without access to attorneys, as a result of rendition.” Gonzales again said, “It’s just — quite frankly, I hadn’t thought about this.”

    Can someone please explain why impeachment proceedings are not already underway? Are we just going to let him play rope-a-dope for Bush’s amusement forever?!

    If I read the situation correctly, impeachment proceedings are proceeding in all but name. They probably want Monica Goodling’s testimony to compare-and-contrast against Gonzales’s.

    Gonzales has been given quite a bit of rope with which to hang himself.

    That means yes. You can be sure about it.
