Madison, Wisconsin-Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on “Department of Justice Oversight” at 9:00 a.m. (central time) Thursday. 

You can link to MAL Contends for continuous updates on the hearing. 

Gonzales is expected to face questions about several issues, some that have morphed into outright scandals, including the matter of Steven Biskupic, US Atty for the Eastern District of Wisconsin. 

The hearing is much anticipated, and is seen by observers as a last-ditch opportunity for Gonzales to save his job as attorney general, heading what many perceive as a politicized and disingenuous US Department of Justice. 

Gonzales’ answers to expected questions on the conduct of Steven Biskupic, US Atty for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, are also eagerly awaited. 

Biskupic’s conduct has become of growing national interest, and has garnered harsh criticism in Wisconsin. 

The criticism has centered on the Georgia Thompson prosecution and numerous voter fraud prosecutions, cases that have been disparaged as politically motivated, and of such dubious legal merit as to raise the specter of corruption in the office of this Wisconsin US Atty. 

Gonzales’ appearance will be broadcast live on C-span on the internet and on television.
