Regarding Comey's testimony:

"To me, this episode explains so much. Now we know why Jim Comey left. We all knew he was on the outs. We just didn't know why," said Mark Corallo, Ashcroft's principal spokesman, who now runs a crisis-communications firm. "I was about as close to John Ashcroft as you can get … and I knew nothing about this."

He called Gonzales' conduct toward Ashcroft "an instance of unbelievably bad behavior" that Comey properly brought to light.

"You have the Justice Department saying they had questions about the legality of the program, and the White House counsel ready to override the Justice Department," Corallo said. "When you see someone who is willing to set up a constitutional crisis over a national security program … one can only have a negative view of that individual. How can anyone look at the attorney general right now and trust this man?",1,3971539.story?coll=la-headlines-nation
