Alberto Gonzalez Claims 'Gang of 8' from Congress OK'd Domestic Wiretap Program

in 2004. This is a new explanation that Gonzalez said this morning why he invaded Ashcroft's hospital room to get him to sign a reauthorization of the unconstitutional warrantless domestic wiretap program. (That is, the program allowing them to spy on anybody they want to - suspected terrorists, reporters, Democrats - without ever having to get approval from a Court or ever say who they spied on)

Jane Harman was on that 'Gang of 8' intel group from Congress at the time.

It'll be interesting to find out if they approved it or not. Her office just said to look for a statement of some sort in the next day.

UPDATE: Here's his testimony from today's hearings.

...And to add - there are two possibilities here:

If that group did not give its approval to the warrantless wiretap program, then all of them should immediately call for the impeachment of Alberto Gonzalez.

If that group did give its approval to the warrantless wiretap program, then they should all -- including Jane Harman -- immediately resign from Congress for breach of the public's trust.
