Gonzales’s choice of counsel, George Terwilliger—a partner at White & Case—is ironic if not surprising. A former deputy attorney general under the first President Bush, who later helped oversee GOP lawyers in the epic Florida recount battle of 2000, Terwilliger had been a White House finalist to replace Gonzales—only to be aced out at the last minute by retired federal judge Michael Mukasey.The report goes on to say that the focus of Gonzo's worries is the infamous Hospital Confrontation when Gonzales and Andy Card, White House chief of staff at the time, showed up at then-AG Ashcroft’s bedside to push for Ashcroft's agreement over the Terrorist Surveillance Program.
According to the report, Gonzales is said to be worried that Glenn Fine, the Justice Dept. Inspector General, who has been carrying out a probe, may refer the case for ethics violations or even perjury before Congress for Gonzales' actions and subsequent statements regarding the incident.
This one doesn't look like it is finished by a long chalk -and rightly so.
