Gonzales Decision Questioned by Republicans

Attorney General Alberto Gonzales's credibility was questioned by not only Democrats, but also three Republican Senators this weekend.

Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Penn.) told NBC's "Meet the Press" that if Gonzales was not being truthful about his decision to fire eight U.S. attorneys last year, his job may be on the line. Gonzales will testify before a committee on which Specter is the top Republican, on April 17 regarding the firings.

Specter's sentiments were shared by Sen. Lindsy Graham (R- S.C.) on CBS's "Face the Nation".

Gonzales's credibility was questioned when email discussions of the attorney firings happened 10 days before any action was taken; Gonzales had previously said he had no prior involvement in the matter.
