Going-Going Gone-zalez must either need his job really bad, or the Bush administration must need him as its firewall between public law and private corruption, for him to be clutching so desperately to his office. In his “please baby, please baby…I swear I’ll be good to you, just give me one more chance” Sunday morning confessional, he hedges his bets just a bit:
While I have never sought to deceive Congress or the American people, I also know that I created confusion with some of my recent statements about my role in this matter. To be clear: I directed my then-deputy chief of staff, Kyle Sampson, to initiate this process; fully knew that it was occurring; and approved the final recommendations. Sampson periodically updated me on the review. As I recall, his updates were brief, relatively few in number and focused primarily on the review process.
During those conversations, to my knowledge, I did not make decisions about who should or should not be asked to resign.(my emphasis)
In other words, he has no idea what will appear in the next document dump. He’s starting to look more and more like Ed Meese every day…
