cybermage's Journal: Gonzales Resigns

Journal by cybermage

With an announcement scheduled for this morning, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has resigned.

CNN has the story of Gonzales' resignation as the culmination of a process began when nine U.S. Attorneys were dismissed for seemingly political reasons.

CNN believes Bush will move to replace Gonzales with Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff. It is unclear whether he will formally nominate him or take advantage of what remains of a congressional recess to put him in office directly.
