Gonzales's testimony is being questioned

In the U.S.A Today and the New York Times ran a story that talked about the investigation that is taking place involving Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales testimony that he gave to Congress. Four Senate Democrats raised there suspicions and asked that a special independent committee be put together to investigate Gonzales's testimony to see if he is guilty of perjury.

The Democrats believe that Gonzales's inability to answer simple questions was stunning to them and raised red flags and made them question if he was telling the truth. They believe that while Gonzales was under oath he told the partial truth and not the whole truth. The four Senators involved are Charles Schumer NY, Dianne Feinstein of Cali, Russ Feingold of Wisc. and Sheldon Whitehouse of RI.

The allegations brought against Gonzales by Democrats say that they have accumulated evidence that shows that the firings were backed by political influence. Two other White House figures, who are chief of staff Joshua Bolton and former counsel Harriet Miers, have been fingered as being in contempt of Congress for not testifying after they were subpoenaed.

Republicans aren't seeing eye to eye with the allegations that have been brought forth by Democrats, but Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania (Ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee) advised Gonzales to resign.
