Monica Goodling, a top aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales who has refused to testify before congressional committees about the prosecutor purge on the ground that she might incriminate herself, is now objecting to a request that she meet privately with members of a House committee instead. In a statement, Goodling's lawyer, John Dowd, explains: "In a free country, every citizen should have the liberty to exercise their rights without threats or coercion."
An attorney for a top aide to Alberto Gonzales schools us all in liberty.
