My Favorite Excerpt from the Gonzales NSA Wiretap Hearings

GONZALES: Senator, you raised a very important point. People focus on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and say, “This is what the words say and that’s the end of it; if you’re not following it in total, you’re obviously in violation of the law.”

That is only the beginning of the analysis. You have to look to see what Congress has done subsequent to that. And then, of course, you have to look at the Constitution.

There have been many statements today about “No one is above the law.” And I would simply remind — and I know this doesn’t need to be stated — but no one is above the Constitution either, not even the Congress.

It's about time someone said it. :)

I have a clip of the whole hearing, but my link doesn't seem to be working for anyone except me. Do you think if I e-mailed the clip to you, you could help me? I can be reached at this place. (hope it works. lol)
