I’m just a plainspoken Colorado criminal defense lawyer, but the way I see it…
Alberto Gonzales is gone but with any luck not forgotten.
He was a lawyer who devoted himself not to the law, but to a man. He was a defender of torture, a defender of illegal search and seizure, a defender of warrantless eavesdropping on American citizens, but he was never a defender of the Constitution.
If he is missed it will be because we need always to keep the enemies of freedom front and center.
