In today’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, former chief of staff to Atttorney General Alberto Gonzales confirmed that Gonzales was involved in the prosecutor purge.
“I was not involved in seeing any memos, was not involved in any discussions about what was going on.”
UPDATE: According to E&P, Sampson said Gonzales was involved in “at least five” discussions about the U.S. attorney firings. (via Atrios)
“I don’t think the attorney general’s statement that he was not involved in any discussions of U.S. attorney removals was accurate.”
