Gonzales Is Challenged on Wiretaps Feingold Says Attorney General Misled Senators in Hearings By Carol D. Leonnig Washington Post Staff Writer Tuesday, January 31, 2006; Page A07
Sen. Russell Feingold (D-Wis.) charged yesterday that Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales misled the Senate during his confirmation hearing a year ago when he appeared to try to avoid answering a question about whether the president could authorize warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens.
-I say, I say, I tol day whole toof, an nutten' but day toof... Update from Think Progress:
Media Finally Reports That Gonzales Misled Congress

. . . Gonzales said “it is not the policy or the agenda of this president to authorize actions that would be in contravention of our criminal statutes.” In fact, he personally approved Bush’s warrantless domestic spying program, in contravention of a criminal statute. We have the full transcript of the Feingold/Gonzales exchange posted. In addition to Gonzales, former NSA director Michael Hayden and President Bush also made false statements relating to warrantless domestic surveillance.
