Gonzo could be prosecuted for U.S. attorney firings

Yes, former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales may face federal charges over his canning U.S. attorneys for political reasons, with the fallout apparently disrupting a number of cases.

Fired former U.S. attorney for western Washington state John McKay said the Office of Inpector General for the Department of Justice interviewed him for eight hours in July. McKay said the IG could recommend legal action within a month.

Nobody this side of George W. Bush or Richard B. Cheney deserves an obstruction of justice charge more.
