    Default AG Gonzales Quits!

    Attorney General Gonzales resigns, officials say

    WASHINGTON (CNN)-- Embattled U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has resigned, senior administration officials told CNN Monday.

    President Bush will likely nominate Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to the position, senior administration officials said. Clay Johnson, deputy director for management at the Office of Management and Budget, would replace Chertoff, the officials said.

    Many lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have long called for his ouster after the firing of several U.S. attorneys in 2006. Bush had long stood by Gonzales.

    Gonzales will announce his resignation at a news conference at the Justice Department at 10:30 a.m. ET. VideoWatch White House report on Gonzales' resignation »

    One of Gonzales' chief critics, Sen. Charles E. Schumer, hailed the move by Gonzales.

    "Well I think that clearly this was the right thing to do," the New York Democrat told CNN. "It took a long time but there is no question about it that the Justice Department is virtually non-functional."

    Schumer added that, "no one thought Alberto Gonzales was up to the job" saying that "we need someone who will put rule of law first."

    Gonzales' move comes after Bush's chief political strategist Karl Rove announced his resignation earlier this month. Senior administration officials said White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten had told senior aides that if they intended to stay after Labor Day, plan to remain for the rest of Bush's term through January 2009.

    Other White House officials who have left in the wake of the 2006 election include White House counselor Dan Bartlett, budget director Rob Portman, chief White House attorney Harriet Miers, political director Sara Taylor, deputy national security adviser J.D. Crouch and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

    He was possibly one of the biggest disasters at the position in modern US history. Jesus, the guy made John Ashcroft look heroically sympathetic!

    LOL At least Ashcroft apparently gave a shit about civil liberties. I like how Gonzales "GITMOed" him by pressuring a dying Ashcroft to cede the Constitution...

    I'm at a loss for words when it comes to this administration. I'm glad he's gone; he should have been gone sooner. Will he answer any questions now with REAL answers and not his condescending b.s.? (Probably not.)

    Gonzales was used as a distraction by the White House. In a way it was brilliant because instead of looking into important things the Congress (because they are morons) went after the AG because he seemed to be an easy target.

    You don't need to be Robert Ludlum to figure out why he's hanging it up a week are so after Rove went home.

    Bush/Rove used Gonzales to buy eight more months in Iraq. Impeachment would take two years and Bush now has less than that before his term ends at this point. So he gets away.

    Repulicans should be thanking Gonzales and Democrats needs to elect smarter people into office.

    He was an "easy target" because he was a criminal, Constitution-raping, torture loving piece of shit who LIED UNDER OATH.

    What proof do you have that he "lied under oath"?
    Also, doesn't that sound a little like what Bill Clinton did?

    You may remember they also impeached Bill Clinton. Or you may not.
