Gonzo’s Memory Fails Him Again

Views

Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission issues its reports — plural. The commission split on party lines.

Zack Roth finds a great tidbit: former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told the commission “he could not remember the press conferences or news reports about mortgage fraud.” It was FBI press conferences.

Also worth noting, both Gonzales and his successor Michael Mukasey told the commission “that mortgage fraud had never been communicated to them as a top priority.”
