D'Kyle Sampson doesn't know much and forgot most of that, but he does know that Abu Gonzales lied about his involvement in the purge of U.S. Attorneys who refused to do Karl Rove's dirty work.
But Sampson provided new detail of Gonzales's involvement, testifying in response to questioning that he had at least five discussions with his boss about the project after Gonzales first approved the idea in early 2005 and that the attorney general was aware which prosecutors were under consideration for dismissal.
"I don't think the attorney general's statement that he was not involved in any discussions of U.S. attorney removals was accurate," Sampson said. "I remember discussing with him this process of asking certain U.S. attorneys to resign."
Meanwhile, the White House admitted that the heads of the Department of Justice acted as Karl Rove's personal whores:
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino also sought to play down the testimony, saying that the administration has never ruled out the possibility that Rove passed complaints about Iglesias on to Gonzales.
Sampson said he was aware of repeated complaints about Iglesias by Domenici, who called Gonzales and McNulty four times from late 2005 to 2006. Another key factor was complaints from the White House that Iglesias -- who was invited to train other prosecutors at two Justice Department seminars on voter fraud -- had not been aggressive enough in carrying out voter-fraud investigations.
"I do remember learning from the attorney general that he had heard complaints from Karl Rove," Sampson said.
Rove rightly fears unbiased and independent criminal prosecutors. And testifying under oath.
And every other "loyal Bushie" should fear what Rove will do to him or her to protect his own ass.
