New docs provide extremely firm evidence that Al Gonzalez lied to congress: “A Justice Department e-mail released on Friday shows that the former chief of staff to Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales proposed replacement candidates for seven United States attorneys nearly a year before those prosecutors were fired, in contrast to testimony last month in which the aide said that no successors were considered before the firings.” I dunno how this works. Can we have him locked up already? Does he need to be impeached first?

UPDATE: A correction. It was Sampson — not Gonzalez — who lied: “But Mr. Sampson testified under oath on March 29 at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee that he had no candidates in mind to replace any of the fired prosecutors.”
