    Bush vs Gonzales on domestic spying

    From American Progress:

    "Previous Presidents have used the same constitutional authority I have, and federal courts have approved the use of that authority."-- President Bush, State of the Union address, 1/31/06

    VERSUS

    FEINGOLD: "Let me first ask, do you know of any other President who has authorized warrantless wiretaps outside of FISA, since 1978, when FISA was passed?"

    GONZALES: "Um, none come to mind, Senator. But maybe — I would be happy to look to see whether or not that’s the case."

    FEINGOLD: "I can take it as a "no," unless you submit something?"

    GONZALES: "I can't give you an answer." -- Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, 2/6/06
