Wow. I mean wow.posted by The Vidiot @ 7:45 AM Permalink Who knew I'd ever long for the return of Ashcroft.
Excerpt: In early March 2004, Ashcroft had been incapacitated, and was in the hospital, resulting in Comey serving as Acting Attorney General until Ashcroft was able to return to office.Wow. Ambushing a sick guy in bed in the hospital.
Subsequently, Gonzales, serving then as White House Counsel, and Andrew Card, former White House Chief of Staff, arrived at Ashcroft's hospital bed, and asked the sick Attorney General to give his approval for the program. Ashcroft stated his strong opposition to the re-authorization. But then he added that his opinion was not important.
