FIRED PROSECUTORS
(2007-04-17)
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - The U-S House Judiciary Committee is set to
vote on whether to grant immunity to a former top aide to Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales.
That would force Monica Goodling to testify about the firings of
eight federal prosecutors.
Detroit Democrat John Conyers now chairs the committee, and he
says he's hopeful of getting immunity for Goodling.
The resolution needs a two-thirds vote of the panel, meaning
some Republicans would have to go along.
Goodling was Gonzales' counsel and his liaison to the White
House.
Earlier, she refused to testify under the Fifth Amendment right
against self-incrimination.
