Senate Democrats

No Confidence Vote on Gonzalez this Monday

Today, Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) announced that a vote of no confidence in Attorney General Alberto Gonzales will be held this Monday: 

“If all senators who have actually lost confidence in Attorney General Gonzales voted their conscience, this vote would be unanimous.”

"However, the President will certainly exert pressure to support the Attorney General, his longtime friend.  We will soon see where people’s loyalties lie.”
