From the New York Times:
President Bush often insists he has to be the decider Ã¢â‚¬” ignoring Congress
and the public when it comes to the tough matters on war, terrorism and torture,
even deciding whether an ordinary man in Florida should be allowed to let
his wife die with dignity. Apparently that burden does not apply to the functioning
of one of the most vital government agencies, the Justice Department.
Democratic lawmakers are asking for a special prosecutor to look into Mr.
Gonzales’s words and deeds. Solicitor General Paul Clement has a last
chance to show that the Justice Department is still minimally functional by
fulfilling that request.
If that does not happen, Congress should impeach Mr. Gonzales.
