Kyle Sampson is Wrong Too

| | Comments (0)
jamie informs that Kyle Sampson claimed Gonzales' statement about being "not involved in any discussions of U.S. attorney removals" was inaccurate.

Sampson, like most of the Congress and the press, is also wrong. The evidence he gives is that Gonzales was involved in a Nov. 27 meeting about the firings. Except, that's the same meeting we already knew about it.

Let's recap. Gonzales said "my chief of staff [Sampson] was involved in the process of determining who were the weak performers ... But that is, in essence, what I knew about the process. I was not involved in seeing any memos, was not involved in any discussions about what was going on."

This Nov. 27 meeting happened after that process he referred to had completed. He was not involved in any discussions about what was going on in that process, he was involved in discussions about what had gone on in that now-completed process.

The whole point of the discussion this statement is drawn from is whether Gonzales was involved in picking who would be fired, and he said no, he was not involved in that. And no evidence, and no statement by Sampson so far, shows otherwise.
