Gonzales, Recusal, and National Security


Andy McCarthy has a great NRO essay on how Gonzales’s recusal obligations would prevent him from taking part in–and would thereby jeopardize–hotly contested cases involving critical issues of national security. And my NRO essay rebuts those who try to minimize the uniquely severe recusal baggage that a Justice Gonzales would have.
