Specter questions Gonzales' press-conference preparation
The Pennsylvania Republican pressed Gonzales on earlier statements at a press conference concerning the extent of his involvement in the firings.
"I'm asking you, do you prepare for your press conference?" Specter said. "Were you prepared when you said you weren't involved in any deliberations?"
"Senator, I've already conceded that I misspoke at that press conference," Gonzales replied. "There was nothing intentional."
