SH and I were talking about Alberto Gonzales and this thing with the firing of the US attorneys.
Me: I can see not remembering what went on last fall when you are first questioned about it, but then you go back and look at your notes and say, “You know, after checking, I realized that I was involved.” It’s that simple. It’s the coverup that kills you. But who can remember that far back? I mean, do you know what you were doing on, say, November 16?
SH: Yes. I was in Cedar Rapids. I had a customer meeting.
Me: I cannot believe you remember that.
SH: It was a Thursday.
