I first came to Washington DC in 1972. I have been in many, many hearings and listened to hundreds more on the radio.
How can one describe the tone of the AGs testimony? Cornered rat. Treed racoon. Dead meat.
How can one describe the tone of the Senators? I cannot take credit for this because Rob Kall said it fist but it is “spot on:” Carving up the carcass.
If the AG doesn’t resign, someone in the President’s staff should drag some tar and feathers into the Oval Office.
"The best way to put this behind us is your resignation," Sen. Tom Coburn, the Oklahoma Republican.
The AG probably didn’t do anything illegal. But he sure did a lot of things that were stupid.
The issue for the Senators is this: have we lost trust and confidence in this AG?
The answer will undoubtedly be a resounding yes.
