Schumer Slicing and Dicing Gonzales

Alberto Gonzales believes that passing along questions from congress members about immigration policy is all that is appropriate for notifying US attorneys that the Justice Department is unhappy with their immigration numbers.

Seriously. Carol Lam and Kyle Sampson both testified that nobody in the Justice Department ever talked to Carol Lam directly about any unhappy feelings about her performance. Alberto Gonzales testified that she was informed. She was informed by members of congress.

Gonzales is just simply unqualified for the job. Forget the shenanigans, forget the partisanship, the authorization of legally questionable tactics. He does not have the skill set to do the job even if he was honest.
