Statement by Senator Kerry on the Nomination of Alberto Gonzales for Attorney General
Thursday, January 6, 2005
I am closely following the nomination hearings of Mr. Gonzales. I have several questions that I want answered, including his role in shaping the White House's policy on detainees and how that may have contributed to prisoner abuses. The hearings currently underway will allow us a better understanding of Mr. Gonzales' record, so we can make an informed decision on his nomination to be Attorney General when it is considered by the full Senate.
