Impeachment conundrum

Marshall, Josh
August 2007
Hill;8/3/2007, Vol. 14 Issue 96, p19
The author reflects on the possibility of U.S. Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales to be impeached. According to the author, if Senators lose confidence in an official, that official could either resign or be fired by the president. However, he notes that Gonzales' actions were merely an execution of orders from higher level officials and firing him would not solve the problem. He states that impeaching Gonzales is unlikely because it would require the support of 20 Republican Senators.
