Gonzo..the lying liar busted again.
WaPo enlightens us today with the news that once again, Gonzo has been busted lying to Congress and keeping a straight face.
Two years ago Gonzo, while attempting to get passage on the Patriot Act, “assured lawmakers that the FBI had not abused its potent new terrorism-fighting powers. “There has not been one verified case of civil liberties abuse,” Gonzales told senators on April 27, 2005.”
Only now, it has come to light that the FBI had already told Gonzo six days prior to his visit with the Senate committee, that they had sort of usurped their power, “that agents had obtained personal information that they were not entitled to have. It was one of at least half a dozen reports of legal or procedural violations that Gonzales received in the three months before he made his statement to the Senate intelligence committee, according to internal FBI documents released under the Freedom of Information Act.”
Oh my…isn’t this rich? Is this guy a friggin idiot or what? Or is it that he doesn’t care who knows he lied because BushCo will cover his ass for him no matter what?
The recent scandal regarding the NSL letters which Congress ripped Gonzo a new one over in March were also discussed in these memo’s to Alberto back in ’05.
The WH and their cronies are insulated from being held accountable it seems..otherwise there would be mass movement and hysteria on the Hill to oust this sumbitch asap and try him for crimes and misdemeanors he has committed while running the DoJ.
