Attorney General Gonzales Testifies on Capitol Hill

Hosted by

America's chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, came under attack from members of both parties today at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Capitol Hill. At issue is how deeply he was involved in the firing of eight US attorneys. Has he tried to deceive both Congress and the American people?  What is the role of partisan politics in the administration of justice? Has Gonzales lost the credibility he needs to do his job?  We get a report on the hearing and hear from one of the former prosecutors.
