In testimony that is likely to ratchet up the pressure on Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, Kyle Sampson, his former top aide, directly contradicted his old boss in testimony Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Despite earlier denials from Gonzales, Sampson said he thought it was inaccurate for Gonzales to state that he was not involved in discussions regarding the firings of eight U.S. attorneys in 2006.
