I have just read through James Comey’s testimony for a second time. I don’t understand the lack of media attention paid to this. What Comey is setting out is among the most dramatic testimony given in a Congressional hearing room, and in the end it will bring down the Gonzales Justice Department. At this point Gonzales either will resign, or he will be impeached. And I don’t expect the process to end with his departure from Justice. Indeed, Gonzales at this point has figured out as much, which is why he is holding on for dear life. Why does this matter, and what does it mean? Marty Lederman authors the single most authoritative post giving the background and context.
